State bans on plastic usage is helping certain states. However, travellers do mind not to thrash waste and take simple steps as carrying water bottle to places n fill them with water rather buying water bottle n thrash them. Similarly, as a best practice, some fellow eco travellers will carry collect waste and carry them to nearby points to discharge them.
- Carry a coffee mug, which we can use for drinking water tea, coffee and we can avoid using plastic glasses. - Carry reusable bottle and avoid plastic bottle water. - Use stainless steel straw. - Carry extra bag for shopping, in this way one would not end up getting multiple carry bags from different shops. - Eat and drink local. HOPE THIS HELPS
Major contribution you can do is not utilising the one time bisleri bottles kept in hotels.
it's become a practice even when we travel by group packages, to give each person 2 bottles per day
also don't is the plastics glasses for drinking chaas , juices etc
a carry on mug doesn't add much weight to the bag but does wonders for the environment!
