Could we actually live without plastics? That is really a complex question. For hundreds of years plastic have contributed well to our life. They were and still are making everything easy and cheap. On the one side, plastics has helped humans a lot. But, on the other side plastics are no more than just a source of disaster to the environment. It is either we who stop using plastics or the world that stops working. Well, if the world has finally stopped working, we will stop using the plastics anyway. And stop living, too. Not only us, but the rest of the living creatures in the world.
Is that really what plastic takes? Yes, and that is why we need to stop using it. When the word “stop” sounds really hard, then let’s change it into something easier to do, “reduce”. We can start reducing the use of plastic from our daily life and finally to the wider spectrum. And since travelling activities often relate to single-use plastics and generates a lot of waste, to the ocean and land, we also need to pay a bigger attention to our vacation style. When cruising on a komodo boat trip, for instance. Is there something that we can do to reduce the plastic waste?
Prepare for a sustainable Komodo boat trip experience
There are actually a lot of things that we can do! Having a sustainable Komodo boat trip experience is not only a suggestion, it is a must-do thing! Therefore you should get yourself well-prepared before the trip. First and foremost, you need to find a Komodo liveaboard company that offers an eco-friendly service. The one that has water dispenser, for example, so that you can simply refill your water bottle. A sustainable Komodo boat trip provider will also take you to sustainable tourism destinations and make the most of your ecotrip experience.
Besides that, you should also carry your sustainable travel kit everywhere during the boat trip to Komodo. Think about the things that you might need during your amazing trip. Just bring the things that you already have. But, if you still need to buy something, try to find only the eco-friendly products. Almost all travel essentials are today carrying more responsibilities to the earth. Old travel kit such as microfiber towels are replaced with bamboo travel towel. It is becoming a common knowledge that bamboo trees are the fastest growing trees which can be turned into raw materials for our daily needs.
