Manage episode 286554017 series 2851753
Barbados is paradise.
This we already know.
But is it also eco-friendly, with consideration for sustainability? This is what we intend to find out during this episode!
During this episode, I, Yvonne Campbell, Barbados expert and travel agent, get investigative and try to discover what the options are for eco-conscious tourists.
I chat to Kyle Taylor, the owner of the Eco Lifestyle and Lodge and farm, who has has a business that produces water out of thin air!
I get the lowdown on the UN development programme, and the Blue economy, and tell you all about a very fruitful coffee morning I attended that introduced me to some fascinating locals who are involved in this very sustainability hot topic!
It's not all serious stuff though! It was my birthday last weekend. I'll share with you what it's like experiencing an anniversary away from home, on this Bajan paradise island.
Oh, and I got my first ever Barbados post! What a lovely surprise!
There's a special exclusive update from The Crane beach house, regarding testing, so I was excited to be able to bring you that news before anyone else!
We also hear from Sea Breeze hotel, about what they're doing to make sure they're considering sustainability at their resort.
