As eight of the top ten rivers contributing to ocean plastics are based in Asia, we feel the need to ensure our journeys do not add to an already enormous problem. With that in mind, we no longer use plastic water bottles and have replaced our plastic straws with paper ones.
In an effort to further reduce our waste, we partner with and fund local programs who collect and recycle leftover plastic. Since it began, we have funded the cost of two projects in Southeast Asia; the provision of clean running water to the Chiro Community in Kampong Cham in Cambodia, and the construction of new sanitation blocks in Yandabo Village in Myanmar. Ultimately, this helps to lessen our environmental footprint, and ensures that the beauty, heritage and customs of the regions we travel to are protected for future generations to enjoy.
