To celebrate earth day, I thought as a destination wedding coordinator I could do my part by sharing a list of properties in the Caribbean that not only are wonderful venues to start your new lives but are earth friendly too.
Green Globe Certificate Shows Commitment to Sustainability
Green Globe International, Inc. (OTCBB: GGLB) is the exclusive worldwide owner of the Green Globe brand, the premier international symbol for the environmental responsibility and response to global climate change. The Green Globe brand and program trace their roots back to the United Nations Rio de Janeiro Earth Summit in 1992, where 182 Heads of State endorsed the Agenda 21 principles of Sustainable Development. The brand is currently utilized in a number of applications, including the leading sustainability certification and benchmarking program, carbon footprint calculation and offset programs, and a broad range of consulting services.
The Green Globe Company Standard consists of six key steps that establish the foundation for the journey to sustainable practices. The first Green Globe Standards were initially developed to apply to the travel and tourism industry, but new Standards can be developed to apply to businesses, organizations and communities in a range of industries and markets. Green Globe Standards are performance-oriented, providing participants with a framework to measure, monitor and improve environmental and social sustainability.
If you would like to feel more socially responsible when selecting the destination for your wedding why not consider the following eco-friendly luxury resorts for your wedding:
Verandah Resort, Antigua
Ritz Carlton Grand Cayman
Hacienda Tres Rios
I will do a more in depth post of the resorts pictured separately each has enough to have its own post.
Happy Earth Day 2009!
