      Ecotourism represents a set of principles that have been successfully implemented in various global communities, and are supported by extensive industry and academic research. The following definition of ecotourism, established by TIES in 1990, is the most widely used and recognized definition of ecotourism: "responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment and improves the well-being of local people" (TIES, 1990). Ecotourism is an important and 
growing segment of the global tourism industry that is making significant positive contributions to the environmental, social, cultural and economic well-being of destinations and local communities around the world. Furthermore, ecotourism has provided an impetus to assist in greening the tourism industry on many fronts.
      Ecotourism advocates for the well-being of local people, and requires that it "provides direct financial benefits and empowerment for local people," as stated in the following principles of ecotourism: Principles of Ecotourism (TIES,  1990) - Ecotourism is about connecting conservation, communities, and sustainable travel. This means that those who implement and participate in ecotourism activities should follow the following ecotourism principles:
 Minimize impact;
 Build environmental and cultural awareness and respect;
 Provide positive experiences for both visitors and hosts;
 Provide direct financial benefits for conservation;
 Provide financial benefits and empowerment for local people;
 Raise sensitivity to host countries' political, environmental, and social climate
      Ecotourism, when properly executed based on the above principles, exemplifies the benefits of socially and environmentally sound tourism development described in the article as "community tourism." The terms community-based tourism and community-based ecotourism are commonly used to describe the type of tourism that, recognizing the significant social, environmental and economic impacts tourism can have, primarily focuses on tourism's benefits to local communities. "Community tourism," therefore, strongly aligns with ecotourism, which fosters responsible practices where the local community significantly participates in the development and management of tourism, and empowers local citizens to utilize natural and cultural resources in a sustainable manner.

      “Think green!” We have all heard of this slogan many times, but do we understand what it means? Climate change is real and will affect us and the planet, so maybe it’s time to do something about it. A great way is to turn off the electronics in our homes and spend time doing other activities instead of watching TV or surfing the Internet. The planet is helped because we are using less energy. And if we are not using our electronic devices, we will have time to exercise, connect with our friends, and develop other interests and hobbies. 
      Another way is to plant an organic vegetable garden. This way, the gardener gets exercise, time outdoors in the fresh air, the satisfaction of raising food, as well as the benefit of eating well. In addition, when you garden organically, you won’t use toxic chemicals and pesticides. This will keep our water clean and ensure that small animals, birds, and beneficial insects are not harmed. 
      Supporting green projects can help the planet, too. Even if we can’t afford solar energy panels or an electric car, we can encourage governments and businesses to use energy from solar power or to build fewer roads and more bicycle lanes. Or we can volunteer for projects in our own communities, such as cleaning our green spaces and rivers. In this way, we can get exercise while we work to create a cleaner place to enjoy nature. 
      We can each be a small part of the solution to environmental problems. If we start with our everyday choices, we can “think green,” “act green,” and “support green.”
