Los Angeles, CA (March 25th, 2009) â€“ Green Living Projectâ„¢, the leading media production and marketing company showcasing global sustainability initiatives, has announced their newest media expedition, this time to South America (April 5-30). Green Living Projectâ„¢ will document 9 new sustainability initiatives administered by leading conservation organizations, non-profits, foundations, travel companies, and eco-lodges. These projects will be incorporated into the company’s online and offline content distribution platforms to educate and inspire individuals and communities on the importance and benefits of sustainable living.
Green Living Projectâ„¢ (GLP) will be documenting projects in Ecuador, Brazil, and Peru, some of the leading responsible tourism and sustainability-focused destinations in South America. In these countries, GLP will collaborate with the following organizations on sustainability initiatives such as responsible tourism, wildlife conservation, voluntourism, environmental education, organic farming, renewable energy, eco-lodges, and indigenous communities:
â€¢ Ecuador Ecotourism Association (ASEC)
â€¢ Ecuador Tourism Board
â€¢ Brazil Tourism Board
â€¢ Amazon Conservation Association (ACA)
â€¢ Mountain Lodges of Peru, and several others
â€œThe Ecuador Ecotourism Association (ASEC) and Ecuador Tourism Board are excited to collaborate with Green Living Projectâ„¢ during their upcoming media expedition to Ecuador,” said Christian Mera, Executive Director of ASEC. “We look forward to having GLP document successful examples of sustainability across Ecuador. We have also found an amazing opportunity to promote the wonders of Ecuador as a premier destination for sustainable tourism in South America to the adventure and responsible tourism market across North America.â€
â€œBrazil Tourism Board’s Public Relations Department supports foreign journalists coming to Brazil to promote our cultural and natural diversity, as well as our tourist destinations,â€ said Mariana Szauter, Public Relations Manager of Brazil Tourism Board. “We look forward to having Green Living Projectâ„¢ help us build an awareness around sustainability, biodiversity, and natural resource conservation, while also helping to increase global social responsibility.â€
â€œReceiving strong support from leading tourism boards (Ecuador, Brazil) and an established global airline (LAN Airlines) was important in GLP’s expansion to South America,â€ said Rob Holmes, Founder and President of Green Living Projectâ„¢. â€œSouth America offers such an exciting contrast to our extensive work across Africa. From varied terrain (Amazon rainforest, Andean cloud forests, volcanic landscapes, Pacific Ocean) to diverse local sustainability and conservation project themes (brazil nuts, indigenous communities, sea turtles, spectacled bears, permaculture), we are excited to document, promote, and distribute these successful and educational sustainability projects.â€
