Piri Why is sustainable accommodation becoming a luxury?
It really seems like it is sometimes. 'Sustainable' has become a term that people value, so companies like to make things sustainable but fancy at the same time and then charge higher prices for it.
It is much easier to find 'luxury' sustainable places to stay than budget sustainable places. This doesn't just apply to accommodation though, it's a problem with all kinds of sustainable products and services.
Things aren't just made more eco-friendly but are also given a packaging makeover and sold as being more wonderful, which maybe they are, but there need to be affordable options too, a lot of people don't want to, or just can't afford to, spend more to be more eco-friendly but would choose those products and places to stay if the price was similar.
