You might have heard about “eco-vacations” or “green vacations” before. Maybe you’ve even thought about going on an eco-vacation but decided against it because…well, you really weren’t sure if you wanted to spend your hard-earned money and well-deserved time “roughing it” in the wilderness, sleeping on the ground, and eating stuff you picked off some bushes along the trail to Camp Withoutabathroom.
