Eat Local

Eat Local is a food movement that focuses on clean, locally prepared food that tastes good without harming the environment or your health. Eat Local encourages consumers to shop local and make eating a shared, social event. You may want to get involved in the Eat Local experience to cut down on fast food and be more informed on where your food comes from and how it is prepared. To get started, you can make changes to your food buying habits and your diet. You can also adjust your lifestyle and join a local family

Green home stays.

Green Homestay is a popular form of hospitality and lodging whereby visitors sleep at the residence of a local of the city to which they are traveling. The length of stay can vary from one night to over a year and can be free, in exchange for monetary compensation, in exchange for a stay at the guest’s property either simultaneously or at another time (home exchange), or in exchange for housekeeping or work on the host’s property. Homestays are examples of collaborative consumption and sharing. In cases where money is not exchanged in return for lodging, they are examples of a barter economy or gift economy. Farm stays are a type of a homestay, in which the visitor stays on a working farm.
