The newest addition to the
Galapagos Island is almost as natural as the archipelago's inhabitants. The
area's new airport itself is made up of 80 percent recycled material and hosts
its own desalination system for providing water to the terminals. All of the
airport's other functions are fueled by wind and solar power. The airport
has done such a good job keeping sustainability the leading factor in this
design that the building received a gold certificate from the US Green
Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. This travel
hub is the first of its kind, winning the title of world's first green
airport. Erika Owen is the Audience Engagement Editor at Travel +
