Wet wipes, much like plastic bottles and other single-use plastic travel conveniences, are a common sight on tours throughout Southeast Asia, an unfortunate circumstance, given their detrimental effect on environments.
As an active travel DMC that strives for greater sustainability in tourism, we are happy to announce that we will no longer distribute wet wipes or single-use wet tissues during tours from 1 January, 2020, onward. We have catered to travelers’ requests for wet wipes on the simple principle of aiming to meet their needs and wishes wherever possible. While this is still our main objective, we have decided, for the sake of the environment and the people living in our destinations, to remove this option in our programs.
The decision will not affect the quality of the services provided on-spot. Our guides and drivers have been trained to give explanations to travelers on your behalf, and quotations won’t be affected since we have never charged extra for the wet wipes.
This is one small step towards a more mindful future for travel, and we thank you for your support!
