Adventure World Travel Advises Brazil Island Bans Single-Use Plastics

March 8, 2019 Responsible Tourism No Comments Email Email

 Award-winning tailor-made specialists, Adventure World Travel, is excited to share the news that Fernando de Noronha is the first destination in Brazil to approve the total ban of disposables. This ban extends to plastics, polystyrene and all products made of polyethylene, polypropylenes and the like.

The forward thinking, environmentally conscious island has prohibited the use and sale of disposable plastics since December 2018 and has allowed for a 120-day adaption period within which all disposable plastics are to be removed from the island.

Adventure World Travel and its suppliers are working with the local government, local businesses, tourism agencies and locals to aid with education and implementation of this new environmental initiative.

In its continued commitment to ensure the reduction of single use plastics for generations to come, The Travel Corporation’s (TTC) family of brands, is dedicated to phasing out single-use plastics by 2022 across all operations, travel partners and suppliers. It is estimated that TTC’s sustainability efforts have the potential to help eliminate the use of tens of millions of plastic water bottles annually.

The ban in the thought-leading Brazilian destination, applies to both locals and tourists and in place of plastics will be the use of reusable bags, paper packaging and biodegradable materials. The administration of the archipelago insists the ban is necessary to protect marine biodiversity in a place that is considered an ecological sanctuary and classified as World Heritage by UNESCO.

Adventure World Travel being a sustainable and eco-friendly travel brand, commends the decision for the local government of Fernando de Noronha to ban all plastics and looks forward to continuing to take travellers to the island.
