7. Ecotourism bring advantages to the environment Ecotourism is a becoming division in today's travel industry. It is also known as "green tourism”, ecotourism is when individuals go to a goal and occur in watching and connecting with the environment, looking into the societies and practices of local tenants while advancing their prosperity. The visitors that visit commonly partake in serving to safeguard the natural habitat. According to Sanders, ecotourism is the act of uniting feasible travel hones that advance the preservation of secured common ranges while also profiting local economies.
Participation in Community-Based Ecotourism Local community participation in all endeavors of ecotourism is not a new concept. The word participation implies how and to what extent people are able to share their views, take part in an activity, programme, project, decision–making, profit sharing and other issues related to the tourism development process. The most important reason for the inclusion of local inhabitants in ecotourism is equity, taking into consideration the conservation of the area through ecotourism development which inevitably entails restrictions in the traditional usage of local resources by the residents (Eagles et al., 1992 cited in Lindberg, 1998). In fact, numerous studies indicate the importance of incorporating the perceptions, values and interest of the local people in the very region where the ecotourism resource/destination is found (Vincent and Thomson, 2002). Taking part of local people should be encouraged from the very beginning by promoting public dialogue and by enabling them to participate in the process of decision making and profit sharing (Diamantis, 2004).
Costco looks to buy from local suppliers in order to cut down on distribution costs and appeal to the local tastes. This also benefits the local economy by supporting local businesses which in turn benefits Costco. Another reason why Costco globalizes is to stay ahead of its competitors, which prevents them from being a threat in the future. By expanding its market reach far and wide, Costco is safer from shifts in the market related to prices and products. It has many inflows of profit from all of its stores that it can rely on.
The report identified the need for sustainable development and conservation of resources, which gave birth to the idea of ecotourism. Eco tourism as defined by Ceballos-Lascurain (1987) is travelling to relatively undisturbed or uncontaminated natural areas with the specific objective of studying, admiring and enjoying the scenery and its wild plants and animals, as well as any existing cultural manifestations (both past and present) found in these area. In 1993, Blangy and Wood defined it as responsible travel to natural area that conserves the environment and sustains the well being of local people.
For example, number of hotels are already taking in to consideration of this situation and following eco-friendly guide. This guide is a project of ISEC (International Society for Ecology and Culture) This Eco-Friendly Guide seeks to: •Encourage tourists to lend moral and financial support to those establishments in Leh where environmentally friendly practices and products can be found. •Prompt tourists to demand more such products and services. •Directly reduce the environmental costs of tourism. • Foster a stringent ethic of mindful travel generally that will hopefully stay with people wherever they go henceforth (importantly, this means avoiding destructive things as much as it means giving preference to sustainable things).
Environmental sustainability is certainly contributing to the sustainability of tourism, which eventually gives its own contribution to the sustainability of human life through economic growth. Environmental sustainability is also inseparable from how local society is habitable by values, rules, and certain norms. Environmental sustainability must also be supported by the development of education in introducing local society about how they should relate to nature, even though they have gained the knowledge and insight from the previous generation, in the form of local wisdom and local knowledge. Aswita (2018), say that “an understanding of environment can be obtained from environmental education, which later becomes a determining factor in people's interaction with their environment”. Bâca (2015), say that "because education is the basis for all planning activities, recovery and conservation of natural
However, as a result of the various definitions and concepts of ecotourism as discussed above, in this study, the definition of ecotourism will adopt the definition suggested by IUCN and accepted by MOCAT. This definition is “environmentally responsible travel and visitation to relatively undisturbed natural areas, in order to enjoy and appreciate nature, that promotes conservation, has low visitor impact and provides the beneficially active socio-economic involvement of local populations”. Another definition from the IUCN stated that ecotourism is a form of tourism that is focused on the discovery of cultural and natural heritage and committed to
An integrated approach to sustainable tourism is primarily evolving with community based tourism Addressing environmental and social concerns through policies, practices and taking initiatives at the ground level may reduce the impact of global warming by enhancing the sustainability of the mount tourism. The environmental sustainability focuses on the overall viability and health of ecological systems. Mountain Tourism will take its own course of time to be completely sustainable as every activity leaves a carbon footprint .The tourism industry has its own share of positive and negative impacts, but the mountain tourism can prosper and work towards becoming more sustainable by following the environmental practices.Therefore,the research topic of the ‘Issues, understanding and interpretation of sustainable tourism development in Shandong Province, China’ have been chosen by the researcher. .3.11The pilot study ‘A pilot study need not be a “scale model” of the planned main-stage evaluation, but should address the main uncertainties that have been identified in the development

Sustainable Consumption: A Demand Side Pathway to Sustainable Development Abstract: Sustainable Development is a widely accepted approach to sustain economic growth without harming the planet or exhausting its resources while improving the quality of life for its current and future inhabitants. .
