Sustainable Travel & Eco-Tourism

Going Green: Eco-friendly content!

We recogize that travel inherently uses a lot of energy and a lot of resources, since it involves moving us (and our luggage) large distances around the world. Here are a number of suggestions for reducing our impact as well as our "carbon footprint".


Travel Feature

For those travelling between Canada & the US, those entering (or re-entering) the U.S.A. BY AIR are required to present a valid passport, Air NEXUS card, or U.S. Coast Guard Merchant Mariner Document. As of January 31, 2008, these rules include those entering the USA BY LAND OR SEA.
