Rural tourism & environment
A good project should fit in its surrounding area and environment, that is even more valid for a project that combines tourism and rurality. 
A business has social, human and environmental consequences. So we must anticipate them and imagine how we can limit the impact of our project on nature/environment, but also on the life in the locality that will welcome it.

a - The ecological footprint explained in the video below
 

What is your own ecological footprint? Do the test here.

b - The four steps to reduce the bills of your project:

1. The first step is to record the consumption (gas-electricity-water) in order to really know the quantities of energy used by your activity and what it costs you, in order to intervene quickly in case of overconsumption (see annual table of energy consumption in annex).
2. Then, identify the various items of your consumption, list the different equipment and draw up their consumption with a wattmeter (average electrical consumption table / 24H). Without using a power meter, it is also possible to evaluate the power consumption by increasing the power and multiplying it by the operating time (eg 40W bulb operates 4H => 160 KW consumption).
3. Once you know what you are consuming and how, the next step is to set your own goals of two types: improving your setup/installation and implementing saving behaviors.
4. On a periodic basis, read your consumption again, compare it with that of the previous period and see if you have achieved your goals. You will then be able to assess the strengths and weaknesses
