Travel Green with Lonely Planet

Oh Wanderlust! For those fellow restless, yet environmentally-conscious spirits out there, Lonely Planet has a book for you. Code Green: Experiences of A Lifetime is the publishing company's latest reference book, and it contains 82 trips they say "will have a positive impact on the environment, culture, and economy of your next holiday destination." (This is despite the firm's recent push to discourage "casual" flying.) The concept is based on all types of travel, from budget to splurges, and covers international destinations. Trips range from an intimate encounter with the mountain gorillas of Rwanda, to studying yoga at an ashram in India, to sailing the coast of Maine with a salty native, to an Aboriginal-led tour of Uluru Rock in Australia. The book is printed on 100 percent recycled paper, with non-GMO soy-based inks, and available through Amazon for $13.59. ::Lonely Planet via ::The Seattle Times
