#EarthDay, celebrated worldwide each year on April 22, reminds us all that we are invited guests of our planet. On #HomeExchange, however, every day is Earth Day for the many members who have converted to or built eco-friendly homes. On every continent and with remarkable diversity and creativity, home exchangers are at the forefront of efforts to champion sustainable living. They employ a variety of means: electricity generated by photovoltaic systems; solar water heaters; renewable building materials such as bamboo, red cedar and other natural products; rainwater cisterns and grey water recycling systems; wooden floors sourced from managed forests; environmentally friendly paint; organic gardens, chemical-free swimming pools and more. Here are 10 eco-friendly homes on HomeExchange:

HomeAway takes the bold position that sharing is lame. But the suggestion that the millions who enjoy the sharing economy are misguided flies in the face of what savvy and newbie travelers alike have actually experienced. Has HomeAway effectively turned its back on the huge sharing segment, and tried to tar its appeal on the way out the door?

+Jim Pickell  believes member satisfaction is the ultimate metric of marketplace success.
23 years ago, long before the “sharing economy” was a known phrase, Home Exchange started as a catalogue to connect people. People were given a stamp and an envelope and could mail each other to swap homes.
– Since its origin, we have tried to facilitate human connections, says Jim Pickell, President of Home Exchange.
Nowadays, making these connections is easier than ever.
– We have managed to find a way to embrace new technologies, and are committed to doing everything we can to facilitate relationships. We are exploring novel things in our industry, like using instant messaging and video chat instead of e-mail. You should not let technology stand in the way of making connections.

"Every family travel experience is different, but one pattern that seems to resurface is the travel industry’s lack of preparedness when accommodating families. Even though family travel is projected to be at an all time high this year (70 percent of Americans are expected to travel for leisure in 2016, which is up from 66 percent in 2015), the industry has a long way to go before it makes travel easy on families."
