Eco-Friendly Travel

Eco-Friendly Travel (ecotravel)

Eco-Friendly travel (also known as ecotravel and/or sustainable travel) is travel which promotes a sustainable environment. Travel is a wonderful opportunity to experience our planet, yet poses an enormous threat to it. Did you know that the travel industry is the fastest growing industry in the world? Last year alone, there were over 715 million international arrivals worldwide according to the World Tourism Organization. And, each arrival leaves its footprint behind.

Leah Powell, president of Trade to Travel (www.TradeToTravel.com), recommends the following websites and easy sustainable travel tips:

www.ResponsibleTravel.com

www.GoodTravelCompany.com

www.TravelWithConscience.com

Planning Your Trip:

Seek accommodations and tours which carry environmental-friendly certifications or memberships in green industry associations – such as Green Seal or Green Leaf. Several organizations have developed standards to measure the environmental initiatives of hotels and tours. Standards vary depending on the organization; however, green hotels and tours include reducing energy consumption through fluorescent lighting, instituting recycling programs, conserving water either through installation of energy star products or by asking patrons to reuse towels, and by purchasing local organic foods. When hotels and tours meet these standards, they are certified as “green.”

Travel to fewer destinations and stay longer at the destinations you do visit. Air travel leaves the largest carbon footprint of any form of travel. Choose trains and buses over airplanes whenever possible.

Don’t fly at night. Trails of condensation from aircraft have a greater warming effect at night, trapping heat but without reflecting any of the sun’s rays back into the atmosphere as they do during the day.

Select accommodations close to public transportation or near the places you are going to visit during your stay.

When flying, book electronic tickets. It reduces paper waste and you’re less likely to lose your ticket.

If you own a vacation property (villa, chalet, condo, apartment, flat, boutique hotel, castle, estate, bed and breakfast, spa, penthouse, private aircraft, yacht, or private island), become a member of Trade to Travel (www.TradeToTravel.com). Not only will you save 80% on fine accommodations worldwide, you’ll be gentler on the planet. Instead of building more and more properties, let’s share the ones we already have.

Before You Go:

Pull the plug on any unnecessary appliances such as TVs, VCRs, stereos, toasters, and microwaves. These items may still use energy even in their off mode.

Set your thermostat and water heater at low settings so energy isn’t wasted while you’re gone.

Stop your newspaper or donate the paper to a school while you’re gone.

When You’re There:

Never buy items made from endangered species.

Leave no trace. Do not pick flowers, take rocks or break coral. Don’t litter. Be familiar with cultural mores prior to arrival be respectful of cultural practices.

Shop local: Head to local markets, where you can purchase fresh food from local vendors (which reduces the pollution required to import goods). This benefits the community by increasing their economy, and you will get fresh fruits and veggies and maybe even some handmade souvenirs.

If your accommodations have an environmental program, please participate as much as possible. If you have any questions about how, simply ask when you check in or by calling the front desk.

Never leave lights on when you’re not in the room.

Lower the thermostat when you leave the room for long periods of time.

If your destination is a warm climate, close the drapes. Or, if you have Venetian blinds, angle them up to bounce the sunlight off the ceiling. This will keep the room cooler. Conversely let the sun warm up your room during the day if you’re in a cooler climate.

Leave unopened shampoo, soap, and other items in your accommodations when you leave unless you’re taking them home to use.

Avoid room service and carry-out which increase waste.

Use water sparingly. In some places water is a very scarce and precious resource.

Walk or use public transportation whenever possible.

If you’re driving, please carpool and/or rent hybrid a vehicle.

Grab only the maps and brochures that you will actually use. If in a large group, share brochures whenever possible.

Take pictures and leave the location as you found it. Never remove wildlife from its natural environment including shells, flowers and coral.

When hiking or camping, stay only in marked areas to avoid destroying vegetation.

If you’re staying in a vacation rental property, leave the property owner a note letting them know that he/she can become a member of Trade to Travel (www.TradeToTravel.com), save 80% on vacation properties worldwide, and make a BIG difference for Mother Earth. It’ll almost certainly be the best tip that any of their guests have ever left them!

Brew Wine

Brew Your Own Wine in Your Kitchen

Here Are Some Basic Steps To Get You Started On How To Brew Your Own Wine

Step 1- PLAN and PREPARE. Plan on where you want your setup to be (Possibly your Kitchen, or a corner in your basement, or garage). Then prepare with what you are going to need, that way you don’t end up missing something in the middle of your project.

Step 2- What are you going to need? Things like corks, bottles, corker, siphon tubing, chemicals, primary and secondary fermentation vessels (milk jugs or a sanitized food grade storage container).

Step 3- Yeast. Over time wine makers have designed different strains and varieties of yeast. They are designed to extract exactly what we want from the fruit juices you are going to use. You can use regular bakers yeast and it works but not as well.

Step 4- Juices. If you are going to buy fruit juices at the store you need to read the label to make sure there are NO PRESERVATIVES! Preservatives are specifically there for kill off the yeast in the product.

Step 5- The Mixture. Your fruit juice must have a high enough sugar content so that the yest can feed off of it. Yeast eating sugar creates fermentation. If the juice doesn’t have a high enough sugar content, heat some water on your stove, dissolve in some sugar, then poor in fruit juice. The mixture should be sweet but not to overpowering. Now if there is to much sugar, add in some water and give it a good stir.

Ad 1 crushed campden tablet per gallon of your mixture. Put a paper towel over the gallon with a rubber band. You want air to get in and out but not little bugs that may be flying around it.

Let the Mixture sit over night. Within 24 hours fermentation will start to occur.

Wine Trivia

Fun Wine History Trivia

Wine is probably the most storied and legendary beverage conceived by mankind, and its history goes back literally to Biblical times. This makes for some surprisingly fun wine history trivia hunting; wine is the beverage that always has another surprise in store!

Wine’s first purpose was as a water purifier! A long time before modern methods for sanitizing water, primitive peoples developed one foolproof method for ensuring that water was safe to drink: they’d mix in the fermented juice from fruit and found the alcohol was sufficient to kill any harmful organisms.

The fermenting of beer and wine was one of the first applications of alchemy and hence chemistry, going as far back as the year 1000 B.C.

Wine has an important place in more than half of the world’s religions. Jewish practitioners say a blessing over wine on holidays, and Passover is observed with four cups of wine. Wine makes an appearance throughout Christianity, with even one of Jesus’ miracles being to turn water into wine. It is used in the Eucharist of both Catholic and Protestant religions. The ancient Greeks had the god Dionysus, the god of wine and with it, of both madness and ecstasy. Of the major world religions today, only the Islamic ones specifically forbid wine.

While we assume that glass bottles of wine is the preferred standard, glass bottles only came into use after the 18th century. Before this time, wine was traditionally stored and transported in bulk, usually in wooden barrels or clay casks. For individual-sized serving, it would be carried in a wineskin, usually made from leather and originally lined with resin to keep them from leaking.

The use of oak barrels is frequently touted as a contributor to the taste of wine. But actually, oak was originally used simply because oak wood was plentiful and widely used in the old world, as an all-purpose storage container. Oak wood has a tight grain which makes it leak-proof. Oak barrels also favor the aging of wine because they allow very controlled exposure to oxygen.

One of the reasons that so much fuss is made over the proper serving temperature of wine is that human taste-buds function differently at different temperatures. Sweeter tastes come through better at room temperature, while more savory tastes come through better at colder temperatures.

The world’s most influential wine critic is currently Robert J. Parker, Jr. The lawyer-turned-wine-snob is responsible for creating the 100-point wine rating system widely used today. It is said that a 100-point rating from him is enough to drive up the price of a wine. This effect has even given rise to the term “Parkerization” in the wine world, which is the tendency of many establishments to base their purchasing habits on what Parker’s review says this week.

Of the top wine-producing nations in the world, France still ranks number one at 5.3 million tonnes per year. Italy (4.7 tonnes) is second, Spain (3.6 tonnes) is third, and the United States (2.2 tonnes) is fourth. Australia is in sixth place, but very nearly tied with, of all countries, China! However Australia is the fourth largest exporter of wine and has the third largest market share.

The “French paradox” has it that the French have a diet rich in fatty foods, yet have one of the lowest rates of heart disease in the world. It is the French paradox that led to the realization that wine, which the French consume in great quantities, is beneficial to the heart.

Spanish Wine – Rioja

In the competitive wine market, Spanish wines offer both quality and values. Its red wines are intense and fruity, while its white and rosé wines enjoy the crispness, refreshing acidity and minerals that are characterful.

Of the many and confusing wine producing regions, Rioja DOC- DOC is a quality wine classification – made its fame long before all other regions in the modern days. At any wine store with Spanish wines, you would be able to spot at least a few Riojas.

What makes it the first love for many wine drinkers when it comes to Spanish red wines?

Is it its fruit aromas? Is it the successful marketing campaign worldwide? Is it the quality of the wine? The answer is yes. It is the combined factors that bring out the result benefiting both the Rioja trade and the wine lovers everywhere.

Rioja is more known for its red than white wines. After all, more than 75% of its production is red wine. The rest of the Rioja wines are rosés and white wines. One of the current trends is to make single vineyard Rioja from Tempranillo grape, the number one red grape in Spain.

Tempranillo in Spanish means “the little early one”, indicating its early-ripen quality in the vineyard. Because it ripens early in the hot climate, the grape naturally contains higher amount of sugar, which with fermentation becomes higher alcohol. All great wines begin in the vineyard. In superior winemaking of lesser cellar manipulation, the individual characteristics of the grape determine the style and quality of the wine. Thus the knowledge of the wine grape becomes very helpful for a wine lover. The other red wine grapes for Rioja are Garnacha (Grenache in French), Mazuelo and Graciano.

The modern Rioja expressions are the strawberry (from Tempranillo), a jammy quality, some vanilla, good concentration. The interplay of high alcohol and abundant fruit on the palate creates the impression of sweetness, but this is definitely not a sweet wine. Depending on the aging time in the oak, Riojas could be Crianza, Reserva or Gran Reserva. With the aged wines, the aroma and flavor would naturally start to include savory, meaty notes, in addition to the youthful fruit.

Does all the wine talk make you thirsty? If you have not tried any Spanish wine, it is time to get up and close with it, starting with a Rioja.
