Trafalgar is continuing its war on plastic by removing all single-use plastic water bottles from its coaches from this year as part of its commitment to being SUP-free on their trips by 2022.

This latest initiative comes following other eco-friendly moves from Trafalgar including durable luggage and name tags from recycled materials, guest tote bags made from recycled materials and the ban of single-use plastics within the brands’ offices.

It is estimated that this latest plastic ditch will eliminate over 5 tonnes of plastic waste in the next five years. Awesome work guys!

“Our passionate, caring global team is unified in its total commitment to our mission to make travel matter,” Brett Tollman, Chief Executive, TTC and founder of The TreadRight Foundation said.

“We are working with our partners on the ground to make sure guests still have access to clean drinking water and will be identifying convenient points along the way they can safely and responsibly source drinking water”.

The importance of the decision and what it means for the industry is echoed by Trafalgar’s CEO Gavin Tollman who said: “The travel industry has a responsibility to do their part, consider the impact of single-use plastic and what we can collectively do as an industry to make a difference”.

As part of Earth Month, the brand has also released the Agents Guide to Making a Difference that educates on the fundamentals of sustainable tourism.

Join us in congratulating Trafalgar on their war on plastic.
