Tourism Companies in the Fight Against Waste and Pollution

Enough plastic is thrown away each year to circle the earth four times. Annually approximately 500 billion plastic bags are used worldwide. More than one million bags are used every minute.

With statistics like these you can understand why we need each individual to consider their plastic consumption.

In this episode of the MYD Earth Show Kirsty speaks to Daniel Zambrano from TOSCO (Tourism Supporting Conservation) who shares on how the tourism industry is doing their part to reduce plastic use and how you can too.

Daniel also shares on the plastic bag ban in Namibian National Parks, and what Tour Operators are doing to facilitate this transition.
