July 02, 2019 by Sophie Boudreau This American Travel Company Now Offers A Zero-Waste Trip Option You don’t have to be an environmental activist to know that Americans create more than their fair share of waste. This is particularly true among frequent travelers, who quickly cycle through everything from mini shampoo bottles to plastic-wrapped food items during vacations. As environmental awareness continues to grow, the rise of eco-conscious travel will likely follow suit – and there’s one travel company that’s taking the lead by offering a greener trip option. Flickr/S Kaya Posted in Travel News Flickr/S Kaya Flickr/mcfst3 The trip’s stated goal is to leave each guest with just a small container’s worth of waste by the week’s end. To accomplish this, organizers will educate and guide travelers as they seek to cut down on single-use packaging, unnecessary plastic, and more. Each of the 14 tour participates will also receive reusable water bottles and other sustainable travel items, guaranteeing a significant decrease in the amount of accumulated waste by the journey’s end. The success of this 2019 Yellowstone trip, which is slated for July 6th-12th and promises access to special guests and educators on the topic of sustainable travel, will likely set the stage for future zero-waste excursions via Nat Hab and other tour companies. Flickr/josephmccowie Natural Habitat Adventures is a travel and tour company based out of Louisville, Colorado. This top-rated organization offers structured tours through many of the world’s most gorgeous regions, including a handful of National Parks right here in the United States. As a partner of the World Wildlife Fund, it’s no secret that Nat Hab prides itself on environmental awareness and conservation, but its recently unveiled “zero-waste” trip through Yellowstone promises a more intensive sustainable adventure.
