The following organisations have been selected by our authors because they demonstrate a com-

mitment to sustainability. We’ve selected restaurants that have an organic focus or refill water bot-

tles with safe, drinkable water and use local produce, funnelling profits back into the community. 

We’ve listed businesses and not-for-profits for diverse reasons: some use solar power and have 

composting toilets; others support refugees by providing them with employment or reinvest profits 

into local groups. Ecolodges and trekking organisations that take care of the natural environment 

and minimise our impact on it are also mentioned here. 

For more green tips, see Responsible Trekking (p114). If you think we’ve omitted someone here, 

email us at www.lonelyplanet.com/contact. For more information about sustainable tourism and
