Sustainable Luxury: Top 5 Green Resorts in Thailand 2021
Hotels that prioritize reducing their carbon footprint so that you don’t need to worry.
Why choose eco-friendly?
The effects of climate change are becoming ever more present in the world and it is vital that we all do our part to promote positive change. With the increasing importance of environmental conservatism, why limit your sustainable efforts to when you’re at home? By choosing to stay at Eco-Friendly resorts that care about sustainability efforts, you too can be a part of the Global Green Initiative in reducing your impact on the environment while enjoying the perfect holiday.
Over the years, hospitality brands in Thailand have prioritized this aspect and their sustainability and social responsibility efforts should not only be recognized, but also celebrated. There are a number of ways to effectively market environmental-friendliness, such as through Green Hotel award nominations or collaborative influencer campaigns with marketing agencies such as Kommune.
