With the adverse environmental effects of tourism gaining increasing publicity, demand from consumers for products that respect sustainable tourism is also increasing (ethical consumerism). In practice many argue that tourists as consumers have failed to exert the fundamental pressure necessary to ensure significant change. A survey carried out by MORI (Market Opinion Research International) concluded that consumers do not see tourism as a major cause of environmental harm, although there is evidence of increasing environmentally conscious behaviour.

Detailed political, economic and social ethical arguments have been highlighted in the UK-based voluntary organisation Tourism Concern.
