'Minimizes impact' is a phrase associated with ecotourism. Where does oil use come into this?

Sorry to keep this so short but where does oil use come into ecotourism?

If you bought an eco holiday you were tricked. Unless you walked every inch of the way. Walking is possible. A friend of mine walked to Jerusalem and back. On his return his boots were put on display in a bookshop in Glastonbury. Here's a Guinness to you Paulo! The original and best eco tourist.

hear what your saying

but I'm gonna be
the Devils nit pick.

So no Oil
was used
in the construction of
Paolo's Boots?

If Jerusalem was point B
what was Paolo's point A ?

Glastonbury was point A. And yes, he walked on water to cross the channel.

Don't actually know about the boot components but point taken. I've just been on a camping trip in the Forest of Dean in which I wished for a pair of moccasins instead of my boots with oil based soles.

Thanks for your input.

Paulo's big thing was ploughing with oxen. He had a pet bull that he would sometimes take for walks in Glastonbury in the middle of the night. Ah the eighties. Either we were all hallucinating or it was a really crazy time.

I bet his boots contained or used petroleum products. The rubber, the leather treatment, the sealer, the synthetic boot laces....

Everything is related to oil in some way or another...

Yes, the condensed gases emanating from the Earths core are a natural part of life. Anti oil hysteria reaches silly levels. Natural oil used to be skimmed from the surface of ponds where it was found for medicinal use. Petroleum jelly was recognised as a useful product when oil workers realised cuts and burns healed faster after they had been working on parts of the equipment where it collects.

In this thread I'm objecting to burning large quantities of oil to enable what is falsely called 'ecotourism'.
