The article presents information on eco-tourism. The Gala Napa Valley Hotel & Spa in California has touch screens that tell guests about water and electricity savings as well as CO² emissions. The Royal Society of Chemistry estimates that a one-way flight across the Atlantic uses a year's supply of biofuel made from the equivalent of 30 football fields of crops. Australia's eco-lodges include the solar-powered Hidden Valley Cabins in Queensland, Rainbow Retreat in Tasmania and Coco Eco Nature Retreat in Broome.
