    Greenwashing  “organizations that attempt to show that they are adopting practices beneficial to the environment”
  • Why?
    Changing buying patterns in consumer markets
    Green = a new sort of ‘good manners’
    Green = fashionable, delivers social status
    Greenwashing existence means something positive but…
    People lose confidence in real green products
  • Solution!
    Companies:
    Green marketing = not about making normal things seem green (greenwashing), but about making green stuff seem normal!
    Consumers
    Look out for the signs!

    Obvious lies
    Not product relevant

    A recognised third-party label
    Significant and major commitments
    product relevant
    Gives an honest feeling
  • Eco- or egotourism ?
  • What
    • More and more people :
    -> Ecotourism
    • But is it so “green” ?  NO!
    • They only think they’re doing an ecological good thing
    So what is it ??
    A marketing concept
  • How come?
    Novelty-seeking and snobbery
    Their travel acts as a marker of social position: separates them from conventional tourists. not the same impact as that of the mass tourists.
    No reflection on the environmental impact of the construction of hotel, the use of airplanes, … .
  • Positive argument
    Personal developpement
    Trying to be “eco” is better than doing nothing
    Economy for local people
    Financial sources
    Chance to survive
  • EGOtourism
    Differencesbetweeneco -and egotourism
    ECOtourism
    Genuinely care about the environment
    Integrate in the local community
    enjoy the experience without bragging about it
    Makes people believe that you want to do something for the environment
    Shock the local community by your behavior and modern devices (e.g. camera)
    Bragging , don't stop talking about the fact that YOU had an eco-vacation
  • Conclusion
    Eco-tourism:
    Not as “green” as people think
    Stimulates the local economy
    Great advantages but also great disadvantages
    “The only good tourist is the one who stays home!”
