11 Luxury Destinations with an Eco-Conscience 

An Earth Day ode to upscale resorts that practice sustainability in noble and novel ways.

Uxua Casa Hotel & Spa
Trancoso, Bahia, Brazil
An absence of signage makes it hard to know you've arrived at this hidden retreat, whose 10 private casas were created without cutting down a single tree. The wood shingles come from reclaimed antique homes, the flooring and wood furniture from deserted farms, the door handles and locks from abandoned cocoa and sugar plantations, the walls from fallen trees, a bar from old fishing boats, and the shower heads from a recycled eucalyptus tree. Reduce, reuse, recycle much?
