Sample Sentences & Example Usage

  1. Joji Morishita:

    The whaling issue is seen as a symbol of a larger issue sometimes in Japan... You might have heard the word 'eco-imperialism', when you go out and ask ordinary Japanese about the whaling issue, they're going to say 'I don't eat whale meat, however I don't like the idea of beef-eating people or pork-eating people saying to Japanese, stop eating whales.

    Instead of killing it, they can be moved to a different area, be used to bring in photo tourism or eco-tourism -- something that doesn't kill the animal.

  3. Edwin Sabuhoro:

    I started a tour company called Rwanda Eco Tours, and I said for tourism to thrive in the country we need eco-tourism where tourists can give back to the community and then the communities will have an incentive to conserve the park. So we built a cultural village in 2006 -- before we finished, we had tourists visiting us. in 2010, we got $30,000 net income from the cultural village and put this back to different activities in the village level.

  4. Dale Vince:

    I think soccer has a bad rep for rubbish food. It deserves it, I think, on the whole. So I think that other clubs can learn from that. Why can't we have great food at a soccer game? We should be able to. So it's partly eco, partly match-day experience; at least from a food perspective. We're, like, fifth tier of English soccer, so it's a bit different here from what it's like in the Premiership, for example, where they're ahead of the curve compared to a lot of clubs at our level, let's say. But I would say - on the eco front - we'll be ahead of that.

  5. Jeffrey Flocken:

    The thought that the only way we can come up with to save the species is to kill them -- that, I would say, we are in a situation where there's a paucity of imaginative thinking. instead of killing it, they can be moved to a different area, be used to bring in photo tourism or eco-tourism -- something that doesn't kill the animal. People pay good money to go to Africa to see species like rhinos, and instead of just killing one for a quick monetary gain for a vainglorious American, it can be moved around to a different area if it is a problem with the herd.
