While millions of people around the world love to travel every year, it can be tricky to explore new destinations without harming the environment. In the United States alone, flights account for 12 percent of all transportation-related greenhouse gas emissions.
One approach for tackling this issue is to create destination options near densely populated areas so tourists don’t have to travel long distances. That's part of the thinking behind the locations of Disney theme parks around the world. But a new collaboration near Disneyland Paris between Euro Disney SCA and the Pierre et Vacances Center Parcs Group has yielded the Villages Nature Paris; a "green village" focused on environmental sustainability and ecotourism.
