Travel with reusable water bottle and cloth bags!

As a company focused on sustainable tourism in our country; we are concern about the problem of garbage that day by day is generated by our traveling friends. Unfortunately in Peru, recycling is not as well organized as in another countries from EU or USA and in some towns and remote villages is almost impossible to “manage” the garbage problem.
We are convinced that “a great experience of Travel must be compatible with respect to our planet”.

The plastic pollution is today a global challenge, and affects not only Peru but all the touristic destinations of the World. We can all together put our grain of sand. And we must act “NOW”.  We are sure that you my dear “traveler” as well as us, love this planet that you wonder during your visits and you will care of it.
P
lease help us have less plastic garbage during your visit.

When you travel to our Peru, take your time to organize your suitcase / Backpack and make sure to BRING WITH YOU:

Two reusable water bottles:

If we talk about your health: Bisphenol A or BPA is a chemical compound that plastic bottles carry. It is classified as an endocrine disruptor (a chemical compound that behaves like a hormone) and can affect the reproductive health of both men and women.

If we talk about the ecological disaster: Enough plastic is already in our Oceans and Valley, mountains etc… and we dont need to collaborate with more plastic bottles on our trips. Please Bring your reusable bottle!
In Peru it is not recommended to drink water from the pipe directly but today you can even get reusable bottles with filters and if you go camping or trekking bring some pills to purify the water (As your grandfather did when he went on an adventure).

Do not generate more waste harmful to the environment, the best option is to have our own reusable bottle. Also in same lodges are offering now to refill your bottle of water; ask to your agent or Hotel desk.

A reusable cloth bag:

According to The World Counts, in 2018 about 160 thousand plastic bags per second were used worldwide, and less than 1% of the total will be recycled. As they are not resistant like clothing bags, people use them and dispose of them quickly, increasing pollution in landfills, streets and oceans. In addition, they take up to 1,000 years to decompose, releasing toxic particles that affect living beings and the environment.

A reusable cloth bag; will help to avoid receiving plastic bags when you go to the markets or buy your souvenirs. It is easy to carry, does not take much space and now there are also with nice designs.

A taper for your meals – Rejects the TECNOPOR:

In Peru, expanded polystyrene (EPS) (called TECNOPOR) is widely used to carry or serve food. Technopor is made with petroleum derivatives, whose production generates a high impact on the environment and health risks. A last study of ten experts from the National Research Council of the United States indicated that styrene, a component of technopor, can be a carcinogen.
Also this material cannot be “recycled”.

Unfortunately in our country we still not having a culture of waste separation (Recycling) So “tecnopor” ends in our oceans. If you are the kind of traveler who buys your snacks on the street to take to your hotel, or keep some food of lunch for dinner, a taper in your bag pack is perfect to avoid technopor, aluminum or plastic covers

Bring solid soap and shampoo (called also pills) if you can:

Today you will read a lot in our media about the solid shampoo and soap. Many of them have being already selling in Europe and USA and are practical and more friendly to the environment.
these are light and long durable, These new soap or shampoo “pills” are easy to carry everywhere; so no problems at the airport. With a single pill you can go around the world because you can use until 80 washes.

You can not imagine the amount of remains of bottles of shampoo and soap that our travelers leave in our hotels..

Be a help and collect trash where you can:

It is not worth only to be complaining about the large amount of garbage that is on our beaches, mountains or forests.
It is true that also it is the responsibility of the cleaning services and our government . But be a help; If you see a plastic around your beaches or seashore; remove it. If you see a straw in the sand, take it out; If you see a plastic bags where you walk; collect them until you find a trash can or the right lace to throw them.

Really…  It costs nothing!

We need to consider if it is worth sacrificing some of our comfort for having a clean and healthy environment – Those products that are problematic for the environment, we should think about using different materials or if you can “eliminate” them from our use.

But let us be clear that it is not a “War agains plastic” we quote the words of Erik Solheim Executive Director of the UN Environment:

“Plastic is a miraculous material. Thanks to plastic, medicine has saved countless lives, the expansion of clean energies from wind turbines and solar panels has been greatly facilitated, and the safe storage of food has been revolutionized (UN). “

Plastic is not the problem. The problem is what we do with It. This means that the Responsibility falls on us, and how and the way of using this material.

Remember that although all this tips looks not to much, but  if we all daily help a little to reduce the consumption and production of plastics the change start it!
Serious; all small things and changes that we all can make are now so important and will be have an impact on our planet.
All of us travel for pleasure, but it is also very important to be a Responsible traveler of our actions in each place that we visit.

El turismo en nuestro país es una de las industrias más importantes. Según el estudio del World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC). Durante el 2017, los ingresos directos generados por el turismo en Perú alcanzaron los US$ 8,135, lo que representó el 3,8% del Producto Bruto Interno (PBI). Sin embargo, la contribución total del sector (que incluye también el impacto indirecto en otros servicios y actividades comerciales) llegó a US$ 20,838 millones y al 9.8% del PBI.

Nosotros hace 27 años cuando estudiábamos esta hermosa carrera hablabamos del Turismo como  la “empresa sin chimenea” pero todos sabemos hoy en día que esta frase, a perdido totalmente su significado.

Más que nunca es importante replantear que tipo de turismo es el que hacemos, pero tambien es vital replantearnos “que tipo de turista queremos ser”.  Nuestro Ministro indicó que “En el Perú nuestra diversidad es un regalo,  pero aprovecharla de la mejor forma de manera que podamos generar el crecimiento en toda la población es una tarea que aun esta pendiente” – Sí, está muy pendiente; sin embargo considero que todos los peruanos en parte  tenemos la tarea de volverla más justa, equitativa y sostenible; y para ello tenemos que asumir la responsabilidad de crecer y aprender a ser no sólo anfitriones sino también a ser viajeros y educadores.

El Turismo de hoy nos exige que logremos conseguir, que la calidad del turista no sólo la midamos por su bolsillo, sino que empecemos a hacerlo por sus principios éticos y cultura medioambiental; porque la sostenibilidad es durabilidad en el tiempo basada en el respeto y la armonía,  porque todos somos parte de esta gran Mega-empresa llamada Perú.

Toda empresa de Turismo tiene que convertirse en la más respetuosa con el medio ambiente para poder sobrevivir. Y para lograrlo es importante que se empiece a educar a la población, al turista; pero también a usted, y a mí. Algo tan simple como que nos recuerden lo que cuesta lavar unas toallas todo los días, negarse a favorecer espectáculos que utilizan a los animales en cautiverio, no provocar residuos en nuestros paseos y actividades; no tirar colillas de cigarrillo, no usar botellas de plástico, etc. En sí es valorar cuál es nuestra huella ecológica en cada viaje y cómo podemos reducirla.- ¡Tener un plan!

Es claro que un viaje y su forma va a depender mucho no solo del bolsillo del viajero sino también de sus principios éticos. Los viajes pueden aportar experiencias y vivencias muy positivas, siempre y cuando puedan conectar al viajero con la gente del lugar y dar algo de crecimiento personal. Incluso a los jóvenes les hace mucho beneficio y se les recomienda mucho mochilear y compartir vivencias eso nadie lo niega; pero también hay que ser consciente del impacto que tiene el turismo en cada lugar que visitamos, y preguntarse qué significa la presencia de uno en ese contexto. Como anfitriones asi como viajeros debemos incorporar más elementos éticos en la forma en la que ofrecemos o recibimos un servicio, pero sobre todo; el como uno decide viajar y haciendo qué.

Una responsabilidad que tenemos como empresa Turística es juntar la experiencia de los usuarios y la concienciación porque cada vez hay más turistas interesados en saber qué implicaciones puede tener su viaje sobre la gente local o sobre el medio ambiente; ellos quieren saber que huella ecológica están dejando. También el viajero de hoy en día desea saber si su visita aporta positivamente a las personas y es curioso en todo sentido; por ende, no debe sorprendernos que pregunten durante el viaje a sus operadores sobre el trabajo, el horario, normas de trabajo, etc. Y si ven algo raro se comuniquen con la empresa, escriban en sus testimonios o hagan una queja. Y esto se dá porque a nadie le gusta organizar su ocio y descanso sobre la explotación de otro. Es claro que No es posible un turismo de calidad sin trabajo decente.

Entonces tenemos que esforzarnos por encontrar un equilibrio sostenible en turismo; no sólo debe exigirse al turista o la persona que viaja, sino también, y sobre todo, a las empresas del sector, con el fin de que oferten a los viajeros alternativas sostenibles y con normas éticas que favorezcan la sostenibilidad. Recordemos que no se trata de lo que un destino vacacional ofrece, ni lo que los turistas piden del destino, sino que se trata de lo que un destino puede ofrecer a cada tipo de turista. El destino representa el espacio físico y mental que se convierte en ese “lugar” que el turista interactúa con algo que ha planeado, soñado y desea hacerlo especial, es el gran “Evento” esperado; el cual va a querer compartir luego con amigos, familiares y será parte de su baúl de experiencias.

Todo profesional en Turismo sabe que existen tantos programas de viajes como viajeros, esto es cierto, pero hay algo que casi todos tienen en común y es que el viajero del siglo 21 busca una nueva forma de viajar y es “aquella que no da la espalda a la comunidad local ni a la naturaleza” y esta nueva forma nos abre las puertas a un replanteamiento por un turismo que haga que nuestro Perú no sólo crezca de forma económica, cultural, social etc. Sino también que refuerze nuestra identidad como “Peruanos”  nuestra diversidad en todo sentido que nos hace tan atractivos. Nuestros eslogan “En la variedad está el gusto” “Perú más rico del mundo” “Perú país Milenario”, “Vive la Leyenda” etc… Son REALES, somos NOSOTROS, somos el Perú; herederos de tanta riqueza cultural y natural que día a día esta siendo más reconocida por el mundo entero. 

Trabajemos juntos; entre proveedor y consumidor, anfitrión y visitante. Juntos  trabajando con  principios y metas comunes por un turismo alentador, responsable y con futuro.

4 incredible reasons to prefer cloth bags in your daily life. 1.- You will help our Environment.

According to The World Counts, in 2018 about 160 thousand plastic bags per second were used worldwide, and less than 1% of the total will be recycled. As they are not resistant like clothing bags, people use them and dispose of them quickly, increasing pollution in landfills, streets and oceans. In addition, they take up to 1,000 years to decompose, releasing toxic particles that affect living beings and the environment.

2.- More durable.

Once you acquire the habit of carrying reusable fabric /cloth bags when you go to shopping or to stores, there are no major drawbacks. The bags are resistant, durable and can be reused many times. Think about that that.

3.- They are comfortable.

Probably one of the most practical reasons: cloth bags are super light and can be folded and easily stored. This makes it convenient to carry them around always. On the days when you need to bring the whole supermarket with you, both the shopping cart and your cloth bags are incredible choices because they do not break, and now they even come in nice colors and designs.

4.- Be an example.

Start using your cloth bags and become a voice in favor of the environment. First in your close social circle, with family and friends, and then with the rest of the neighborhood that will see you using them in your daily life. The damage to our environment has already occurred and pollution is difficult to reverse but we can slow down with small changes in habit that influence other people.

As we can see, it is POSSIBLE and it is not a limitation to eliminate plastic bags in your daily life.

AND THE BEST OF EVERYTHING IS THAT YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

There are already many Peruvians who are working to create a positive and dignified future; We are all part of the hope and change that is today so necessary.

Be part of this CHANGE!

YOUR FRIEND GI.
