A Greek hotel in the 11 most sustainable hotels in the world!
A Greek hotel, Calilo Resort on Ios island is among the 11 most sustainable hotels in the world, according to American lifestyle magazine Veranda.
The magazine describes Calilo as follows:
"Situated on the unspoiled island of Ios in the Greek Cyclades, this family-owned, 30-suite luxury resort was created with sustainability and ecotourism at the heart of its ethos. The family has worked to purchase a significant amount of beachfront land in Ios in order to consciously leave 99% of it undeveloped so that the island can maintain its natural beauty for future generations. They’ve also launched the Elektra Olive Tree Project, a conservation initiative to restore the habitat that was previously burned by wildfires and deforestation. To date, they’ve planted more than 68,000 olive trees and bushes (including 550 ancient olive trees), and guests can “adopt” and name a tree and then follow its life cycle."
