Supporting Leave No Trace and Travellers Against Plastic campaigns

We are proud supporters of the Leave No Trace and Travellers Against Plastic campaigns. Our aim is to have as little impact on the environments in which we operate tours. On each of our treks all waste is meticulously collected and removed off the mountain and trails to be properly disposed of.

What is Leave No Trace?

Leave No Trace is built on seven core principles that are used to communicate the best available minimum impact guidance for enjoying the outdoors responsibly.

The Seven Principles

  • Plan ahead and prepare
  • Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces
  • Dispose of Waste Properly
  • Leave What You Find
  • Minimize Campfire Impacts
  • Respect Wildlife
  • Be Considerate of Other Visitors

The Seven Principles of Leave No Trace were developed to help educate and guide recreationists in sustainable minimum impact practices that mitigate or avoid recreation-related impacts. These Principles are the most robust and widely utilised minimum impact outdoor practices.

Although Leave No Trace has its roots in backcountry and wilderness, the practices have been adapted so that they can be applied anywhere – from the backcountry, to local parks, to your backyard – and for any recreational activity. Each Principle covers a specific topic and provides detailed information for minimizing impacts. – See more at: https://lnt.org/.

What is the Travellers Against Plastic campaign?

The Traveller’s Against Plastic Campaign (TAP) is an outreach initiative which aims to educate global travellers about the harmful impacts of plastic water bottles usage and encourage travellers to be prepared to clean their own drinking water.

TAP’s vision is to catalyse a self-sustaining global movement resulting it the near-elimination of travellers’ dependence on plastic water bottles.

Their mission is grounded in the ethics of responsible travel, the TAP campaign aims to educate global travellers about the harmful impacts of plastic water bottle usage and encourage travellers to be prepared to clean their own drinking water.

Kandoo full heartedly support the TAP campaign. The use of disposable plastic bottles while travelling is: hard on the environment, hard on the communities left with the garbage, it’s expensive, and it can often be unhealthy. No traveller wants to leave a trail of plastic water bottles behind them, but many don’t know how to avoid it.

The solution is easy: Carry a reusable water bottle and a method to clean the water. Help avoid the waste of hundreds of millions of plastic bottles each year. See more at http://www.travellersagainstplastic.org/
