Eco-tourism is defined by The International Ecotourism Society (TIES 1990) as “responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment and improves the well-being of the local people.” Eco-tourism is about uniting 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.

Live Eco Style’s ECO Certification criteria incorporates and embraces these concepts as best business practices to meet the overall requirements of the “eco-conscientious traveler” and general benefits of conservation, community, and economy.
