Setting off yesterday, Roz Kelly founder and owner of EcoActiveIreland.com, has decided to get out from behind her desk and embark on an Eco Tour of Ireland.
Looking to utilise her skills at something she has always wanted to do, Roz hopes to source and share great events that have an Eco slant, which all ages can enjoy.
Commenting on the tour, Roz said: “I am really excited to be traveling Nationwide to meet with some of those who have taken the courageous step of setting up Eco businesses and to be able to share this experience with you along the way”
Roz added, “EcoTourism and Nature related activities account for 20% of Global Tourism, a figure that is set to grow in the coming years. By supporting these businesses we are contributing to a more Eco friendly existence. They are also inspiring us to improve our own Work Life Balance. Encouraging us to break from the ever growing pressure of “not enough hours”. To take time out and to start enjoying and utilising nature, implementing practices that are leading to healthier living”
