New Ecological Travel Guides by VERY Publications

very-style2.jpgJust when you thought you’d found your favourite travel guides another lot pops on to the market to cause confusion but these aren’t any old tourist guides, no, eco travellers, the VERYstyleguide Ecological focuses specifically on the various aspects enviro tourists get excited about like, green restaurants, ethical businesses or alternative travel in the city ie, pedicab tours and bike rental. And the new guides are causing quite a stir.Published by UP&CO, these mini mags and shopping directories are the brainchild of designer, editor and publisher, Uscha Pohl. A long-time fan of all things ethical, especially clothing, Uscha has created a range of city guides that combine eco style and culture in an easy-to-use flip-over booklet.

VERY Eco says, “… the ecological guide offers new options to everyone who seeks to inject ecological and ethical principles into their daily life. These will permit the reader to live and shop in accordance to their convictions and to discover lesser known ecological domains like ethical banks, high-end fashion labels which rely on truly ecological and/or ethical production and sourcing procedures, as well as ‘ecologically correct’ information centres.”

Introducing these new VERY guides will be a range of well-known people who are keen to encourage ecological and ethical thinking, including, designer Katherine Hamnett, David de Rothschild of Adventure Ecology, re-claiming shoe designer Nina Dolcetti and ecological design professor from Germany, Herbert Weinand.

If you want to be part of the new eco-chic wave, bag yourself one of the latest fashionable VERYstyleguides/VERY CITY guides for New York, London, Paris or Berlin from various newsagents in each city.
