TRAVELOCITY PARTNER ALLOWS PEOPLE TO GO ANYWHERE AND SLOW GLOBAL WARMING ... AT NO EXTRA COST
An opportunity for all travel to be GREEN
SANTA BARBARA, CA, February 22, 2007 --/WORLD-WIRE/-- Inspired by the movie An Inconvenient Truth, a new travel service allows anyone to go anywhere "green," at no additional cost to the traveler.
GreenPleasures, www.GreenPleasures.org, recently partnered with Travelocity, giving travelers the competitive pricing, selection and service of one of the largest travel booking engines for airlines, hotels, cruises and other last-minute deals.
In addition, proceeds are re-invested into programs that reduce global warming, (carbon emission offsets, methane recovery, etc.).
GreenPleasures was created by Eric Woodroof, Ph.D., who has helped organizations save millions in cost-reduction and environmental programs. Woodroof states, "If travel is more environmentally-friendly (at no additional cost to the traveler), more people will participate in this program and we can have a healthy impact on the planet."
For example, when a traveler buys a 7-day vacation via GreenPleasures.org, the organization invests in carbon emission re-capture programs (equivalent to planting nearly one acre of trees), thereby helping to slow global warming.
James Spence of Los Angeles, who just returned from Hawaii says, "The concept is awesome. It is easy to use, and feels great to help the planet. I will use it for all my travel."
This program allows the average consumer a chance to reduce global warming with no additional cost or effort.
To celebrate Earth Day, there are contests for free vacations. Discover more about this program and current contests at www.GreenPleasures.org, where anyone can save money and help save the planet.
