Since its very beginning, Airbnb has been committed to promoting and supporting healthy, sustainable tourism, and we’re seeing a similar dedication to the environment from our guests and hosts ahead of Earth Day.
In the last year alone we have seen a 30 per cent growth in eco-friendly Airbnb listings globally* and a 50 per cent increase for environmentally-conscious bookings.** In Canada, South River, Ontario has claimed top ranking as Canada’s most Airbnb eco-friendly city and is ranked fifth globally, with nearly 46 per cent of all listings in the region classified as eco-friendly.
From earth houses and yurts, to an off-the-grid island, Airbnb hosts across Canada are providing their guests with ways to keep the spirit of Earth Day alive year-round. So, before you turn off the lights and disconnect from technology this Earth Day, check out these highly sought-after eco-listings from across Canada.
