The Vintage Teardrop: camping with a nod to the past
The so-called Teardrop trailer was first introduced in March/April 1939, in a magazine called Popular Homecraft. Originally designed and built by Louis Rogers of Pasadena, California as a coach for his honeymoon, it quickly made headlines for its futuristic design and ease of use. Thousands and thousands of people fell in love with the quirky trailer that gave them an unprecedented level of freedom, or so they thought. Just a first glance at the fun-looking vehicle and you will be dreaming away of summer road trips and camping outdoors. And while it may not have been in fashion as much as it was back in the forties, it does not take away anything from the fact that it might have been one of the very first examples of a tiny house. The recent wave of popularity surrounding the concept of downsizing and living in increasingly smaller spaces is, as such, not entirely new - although it nicely goes hand in hand with sustainability goals.   Reducing  carbon footprints A closer look at the specifics of the Vintage Teardrop illustrate how it could be considered a predecessor of the tiny house movement. At the time of its first publication, people went nuts for its advantages. The trailers were tiny, light, easy to tow, and reduced drag and fuel consumption due to its aerodynamic shape. Even the Italian mini-car Isetta, better known as the original Bubble Car due to its egg shape and bubble-like windows, could easily tow it - making for a great sight along the way. With a total floor plan of 8 inch by 4 inch, comprised of tongue-and-groove oak flooring on a pine chassis and hard pressed board as sides and top, the original egg-shaped trailer sleeps two. Additionally, it boasted a kitchenette in the rear with an ice box, sink and stove, and a separate curtain-enclosed dressing room providing some privacy while dressing. Furthermore, the floor plan included space for a pressurised water tank, a small clothes closet, and a chemical toilet. Refined teardrop concept After the initial success, two guys bought an abandoned fruit stand in Norwalk in post-World War II California. They figured they would take the concept, tune it down and clad it by aluminum instead. Soon after, they started selling their unique take on the Teardrop trailer, in doing so minimising its use of raw materials. These raw materials were often procured from recycled products - particularly war reminisants, such as Jeeps salvaged from sunken ships. The only downside? The many bullet holes in them, that had to be welded up during production. Although the main incentive driving the use of minimal, recycled materials was not nearly as noble as ‘saving the planet’ and something more along the lines of ‘saving money’, it sure teaches us great lessons for the development of tiny house projects today.   From fruit cart to worldwide obsession If you are interested where the guys with the fruit cart ended up with their concept, you can rest assured that the answer is, in fact, ‘in the history books’. Soon after their prototype completion, sales exploded - in particular after some much-needed upgrades to the interior and facilities. Solely working from their own workplace, constructing their specially developed kits, these guys ended up building more than 40 trailers per day. Thousands and thousands of Teardrop trailers hit the road in the following years.   As if this was not yet enough, the guys kept on innovating and came up with a slightly more conventional 8 inch by 14 inch “coach” model in a camper edition, that once again resulted in demand crushing the actual supply.   Even today, their company Kit Manufacturing Co. still thrives, manufacturing all kinds of recreational vehicles and mobile home equipment. One of these guys kept on running the company until his death in 2012, while the other spent the last decades of his life enjoying his well-earned retirement. Why it matters As explained before, the Vintage Teardrop is a perfect example of why  tiny houses can - and will! -   be successful if done right. Downsizing and living small will feel like an adventure to us, people, if we feel that it adds value to our life. Or charm, as the Teardrop trailer did. Combine this with a promise to make one’s life more sustainable and eco-friendly through the reduced carbon footprint and use of recycled materials, and we will be sure to embrace the tiny house-trend - just like our (grand)parents embraced the teardrop trailer in the forties and fifties. https://www.whatsorb.com/category/transportation

Sustainable tourism is about people nature and climate change
Sustainable tourism is about people and nature Sustainable tourism is about how people and nature are dealt with. Has a holiday park not been placed in a vulnerable area? Are solar panels installed? Do people from the area work in the resort? Sustainable tourism always ensures that the ecological footprint is as small as possible. Nature tourism Nature tourism aims to be in nature or to deal with it well. Think for example of a safari in Africa, mountaineering in the Alps or diving in the Mediterranean. But the term nature tourism does not say anything about how responsible the activities are. Tourism as nature protection Tourism sometimes has adverse effects on nature. But it can also be a way to protect nature. If nature tourism becomes a source of income for the local population, a broader base of support is created to cherish nature. In addition, people can earn their money with nature-friendly activities in tourism. Climate and  tourism The choice of your holiday makes a lot for the climate. A two-week sun holiday to Bali gives an emission of more than 16,000 kg of CO2 for four people. That is as much emissions as heating your home for four years. Reduce emissions on your holiday A special tool provides insight into the CO2 emissions of transport, accommodation and activities during your holiday. With most holidays, the distance to the destination and the choice of transport determine the climate impact. Do you travel within Europe? Then a journey by train or bus is the climate friendliest choice. In distant air travel, a vacation closer to home is always better for the climate. Do you really want to be completely climate neutral? Then opt for a  cycling or walking holiday. That also saves a lot of airport or traffic jam stress. And it is a lot cheaper too.

Tourism ‘has crucial role’ propelling global sustainability debate
Tourism has a crucial role to play in propelling the global debate around sustainability but is too often “absent” from the debate, a nature-based tourism initiative  says. The Long Run – which helps its members protect more than 12 million acres of “ecologically important areas” – released its annual report this month. Its chairman Jochen Zeitz says that tourism does not often take the lead in global debates around issues like climate change and “environmental degradation”. But he thinks it can have a big impact on the way businesses across the world deal with those issues. Traveling transforms lives from people “Tourism has a unique opportunity to lead the way,” said Zeitz, a former chief executive at sportswear firm Puma. “The sector represents 9.8% of the world’s GDP, one in 11 jobs, and will concern 1.8 billion travellers by 2030. “Travelling transforms lives; by exposing people to new experiences and cultures, it increases understanding and opens minds. If done right, it can drive sustainable development and significantly contribute to the delivery of the world’s Sustainable Development Goals by helping to protect nature, improve livelihoods and preserve cultural identities. Despite all this, the tourism sector is noticeably absent from global sustainability debates. The United Nations The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals are a list of 17 goals – with 169 targets between them – that it hopes countries around the globe can introduce by 2030 in international agreement. It includes subjects ranging from hunger, health and education to climate, equality and innovation. The Long Run was founded in 2009 to support eco-sensitive tourism ventures as they sought to develop businesses in tune with the protection of the landscapes in which they operate. It now has more than 40 members which look after a combined 12 million acres – an area larger than the size of Switzerland. Its members have invested over US$10 million in conservation and local communities and employed more than 3,700 people. Its sites include Cottar’s, a 1920’s Safari Camp in Kenya’s Maasai Mara, Brazil’s Sinal do Vale biosphere reserve, and hiking destination Comrie Croft in Perthshire, Scotland. The Long Run's vision “The Long Run’s vision is that of a world in which business, nature and people are harmoniously working together for a sustainable future,” Zeitz added. “It demonstrates what the private sector can achieve and the positive impact it can have on conservation and communities around the world. Society, and business especially, must embrace its responsibility towards the future of this planet.” https://www.whatsorb.com/category/travel
