Holidays that give the world a break

Brazil Now the weather's finally turned seasonal (and much as you feel obliged to be happy that it's officially 'no longer the warmest January on record', you still really hate the cold), the chances are your mind is turning to holidays. Preferably the sort that whisk you out of the gloom as quickly and as affordably as possible. After all, we're all entitled to our dose of winter sun, aren't we?

But what are the options for those of us counting our carbon emissions? If setting up camp in a muddy field somewhere 'reachable by foot' isn't your cup of tea, then you'll be relieved to hear that companies offering responsible travel are on the rise, and there are more options for the eco-tourist than you may have thought. They include Responsible Travel, the Brighton-based company that claims to have coined the term, where family holidays, adventure travel and even honeymoon breaks are among the packages on offer. Responsible Travel hand-pick operators that adhere to a number of sound ethical guidelines, and declare themselves 'too eco' to print the hundreds of breaks they offer on paper! Check out their site to see a full list of destinations, and start dreaming about clear blue skies...
