The stakes are high at the ongoing climate summit in Paris. While the leaders who represent us debate the politics of climate change, the rest of the world seems to have unanimously united under a singular mission to conserve the beautiful planet that we live on. And this planet cannot support our old ways of life for much longer.

Thankfully, the world of travel has long adapted to the needs of the time. Did you know that Airbnb guests use 63% less energy than hotel guests in North America? Those savings can power close to 20,000 homes. For one whole year! Airbnb guests are also more likely to use public transport and help save millions of gallons of water every day, compared to hotels.

With a formidable selection of eco-friendly houses, green buildings, Passive homes, earthships and igloos to chose from, Airbnb is not only the future of travel but has already created a viable model for sustainable tourism. Here's a list of some of the most swoonworthy eco-friendly options on Airbnb.
