Dangerous trash

The world produces a huge amount of garbage that contains toxic and non-degradable substances, and unfortunately, the tourism industry also adds some amount of such garbage. Therefore, we ask you to follow these recommendations:

  1. Comply with disposal regulations for electronic and other toxic products.
  2. Do not dispose of batteries and other chemical sources outside the established recycling containers.
  3. Do not use plastic packaging if possible.
  4. Do not burn toxic waste, which releases toxic substances into the atmosphere, such as plastics, synthetic materials.
  5. Do not use toxic substances while traveling.

Carbon footprint

The carbon footprint is not only about transportation, although it contributes the lion’s share of carbon emissions, so any tourist should:

  1. Minimize and take into account carbon footprint when building and moving your routes.
  2. Less use of air transport and more land transport, which specifically leaves a smaller carbon footprint.
  3. Where possible, use a CO2-neutral vehicle, such as a bicycle or an electric vehicle.
  4. Minimize your energy consumption while traveling.

Food waste

According to the UN, there are approximately 930 million tons of food waste per year in the world. This is a discarded food that could completely solve the problem of hunger. Unfortunately, the tourism industry is also contributing to the growth of food waste, so our recommendations are:

  1. Even if you live on the principle of “All Inclusive” – ​​do not take more than you can eat
  2. Do not store food where it can spoil, such as under the sun or out of the refrigerator.
  3. Don’t buy extra groceries, make a shopping list in advance.
  4. Prefer a small package to ensure you consume the entire product before it goes bad.
