Be a more sustainable traveler
Book eco-friendly hotels and restaurants
The Challenge Summarized
Tourism is usually seen as a contributor to economic development, even though the negative environmental impacts of tourism are substantial. They include pollution, waste problems, and the depletion of local natural resources. Ecotourism was created as the antidote to traditional, mass tourism. The main principle of eco-friendly tourism is to respect the people and places you visit and minimize the environmental impact of your travels. Ecotourism involves use of sustainable transport, improving the well-being of local communities, and conserving the environment, among other things.
The founders of Bookeco wanted to create a project that would help recover and restore the planet. In 2020, they started building Bookeco, a web platform to plan and book your next adventure, whilst also having a positive impact on the environment. In their search for a reliable software development partner, they found Scopic.
The Scopic Solution
Together we created Bookeco, a web application that helps users to search for and book eco-friendly hotels, restaurants, destinations, and things to do. The platform is easy to use and intentionally simple. Here are the features developed by the Scopic development team for the website:
Favorites: Users can save favorite hotels, restaurants, and activities.
Search: Users can search for places on Mapbox via filters.
Pins: Users and businesses can submit and add their own pins to the map.
Cookie tracking: The platform tracks users who go to third-party websites and book through them.
Moreover, for every hotel night, a ticket for things to do, or a restaurant table booked through Bookeco, the platform donates to Eden Reforestation Projects to plant a tree.
