We all love a good beach vacation, but they can be pretty harmful to the environment. Aside from flying and the havoc tourists sometimes wreak on local eco-systems, hotels themselves are not the greenest places on earth—they use up electricity, water and individually packaged products, releasing carbon into the atmosphere at every turn. And in rich habitats like the Caribbean, this can be detrimental. 

Fortunately, the area will soon be home to Itz’ana Resort & Residences, a luxury eco-resort in Belize that promises not just to be green, but completely carbon neutral. It's the first of its kind in the Caribbean.
