Nepal Sanctuary Treks (Nepal)
Promoting No to Plastics, Water Conservation and Waste Management at teahouse, trekking trails and City hotels.
Nepal Sanctuary Treks are committed to promote sustainable tourism through awareness, training and policy. During camping and tea house lodge trek, the waste accumulated is either carried and disposed in designated areas or taken to the city in proper disposal areas. This policy of Pack it in, Pack it out, has encouraged trekkers, guides and porters to carry less packaged items. For example, trekkers tend to use refillable water bottles in order to carry less waste.
Moreover, workshops on waste segregation, water conservation and existing alternatives to single use items are conducted. Nepal Sanctuary Treks developed and implemented a solid waste reduction and recycling policy with quantitative goals to reduce non-reusable or recyclable waste.
