As global companies pledge to cut plastic pollution, the impact of single use plastic has been at the forefront of everyone’s mind in recent months. With the airing of Blue Planet II, Sir David Attenborough highlights the effect plastic is having on our oceans and is actively calling on the government and the public to try and reverse some of the damage this substance has had, and is still having, on our landscapes, wildlife and oceans.
Our love of Latin America permeates through everything that we do; we want people to experience this region and its awe-inspiring beauty for generations to come. Therefore, in tandem with AITO, we are working on a pledge to encourage sustainable practices in the destination we send our travellers.
Did you know that on a two week holiday you could (on average) be buying 28 single use, plastic bottles of water – not only will that be costing you around £30, it also has a huge impact on the management of plastic waste, but the problem comes when you want to drink safe, fresh water whilst you’re away. So to combat these problems we have partnered with Water-To-Go to offer our customers a solution; safe drinking water from a reusable bottle. A unique filter system technology eliminates 99.9% of all bacteria, viruses, chlorine, fluoride and heavy metals such as lead, as well as contaminants like pesticides; so you can fill up your bottle from any tap or stream – making it not only good for waste management and your wallet, it is extremely convenient.
For Journey Latin America clients, we are offering a 50% discount on Water To Go bottles meaning they cost just £12 each. You'd also receive a discount on any future purchases with WTG for filters or bottles using a special Journey Latin America code!
