Instead of just hitting the bottle on your journey, we suggest to TAP the (re)source and cut the waste! Travelers Against Plastic is aimed to help cut an estimated 2.7 million tons of 'water bottle plastics' used globally each year. With iodine tablets, filtration or electronics, it's easy to purify local sources of water for consumption. Choosing to treat your own drinking water when traveling is better for you as well as for the people and beautiful locations you visit. Keep the bottle-necks from the trails and villages (and take the message home with you too)!
The lucky ones among us are blessed with a curiosity, desire and means to explore a vast and amazing world. We travel to extraordinary, far-flung places to absorb nature's majesty and the eloquence of cultures struggling to avoid commercialization or oblivion. Recent evidence has been a stark reminder for us all — that "every action has a reaction" and that one can no longer take for granted, the resources we once so-freely exhausted.
For some more ideas on minimizing the effects of travel on the Earth's wildlife, cultures and resources, we suggest visiting Ethical Traveler.
