Our natural world is currently drowning in plastic waste. Many of our rivers and oceans are swamped in plastic that is choking the life from them. Petroleum-based plastics like PET don’t decompose the same way organic material does, and while plastic bathed in light floating in our oceans can degrade, they only break down into smaller toxic pieces and end up being ingested by animals.
According to Plastic Oceans Foundation, we are now producing nearly 300 million tons of plastic every year, half of which is for single use. More than 8 million tons of plastic is dumped into our oceans every year.
To help reduce the number of single use plastics being produced, used and disposed of, Destination Asia Indonesia recently introduced refillable water bottles in place of single use plastic ones. The initiative is already active in Cambodia and Thailand with Japan joining soon.
The client was very supportive of the new initiative and delighted that efforts were being made to reduce the use of plastic. They found them extremely easy to carry and were pleased that they could also be taken home and used throughout the year.
This is the first of many groups who will receive these bottles in replace of single use plastics. The transporting vehicles are now carrying multi-gallon bottles of filtered water so guests can top up whenever they like.
