Health comes first, and is as important as the Planet. Traveling to tropical countries or isolated islands is an extra in waste production because running water is a very expensive good. But there are ways to avoid this waste without putting our health at risk, and here I tell you how we travelled without buying a bottle of water.
It is one of frequently asked questions, and we are happy to answer with a big yes. Because yes, it is possible to travel plastic free to Sri Lanka. However, we would have liked to read this post before going. Therefore, we have will write about our achievements and our failures

In case you still did not know, tourism represents 8% of greenhouse gas production. This is because this sector is booming and an annual growth of 4% is expected. In the cited study, they do not count the emissions that during transportation (car, plane, train ..), but you can be sure that they have a great ecological impact on the trip, if you are interested you can calculate tons of CO2 here.
When we travel, we produce waste because we are not prepared, therefore, we always carry our backpack with everything ready to travel to avoid leaving any trace.
What’s in our backpack?
Traveling is an activity, at least, ecological. But nowadays there are very few activities whose ecological footprint can be considered as “null”. Don’t worry, if you are reading this blog, I know you are aware of it.
