04May

Casa Natura Galápagos Lodge is excited to share the news that on April 25th, the Government of Ecuador announced a campaign to make the Galapagos islands a plastic-free archipelago. This will be achieved with the progressive restriction of containers made of this material.

The news announced by Lorena Tapia, which is president of the Governing Council of the Special Regime of Galapagos. At a press conference, she said that the campaign is based on environmental and public health reasons, and that it will be based on current regulations that has not been applied rigorously.

The local and progressive restriction of the use of straws, bags, flexible foam and plastic bottles are part of the rules of the campaign, Tapia said, specifying that controls will be applied, especially in the commercial centers of the populated areas of the Galapagos.

The campaign will also be supported by private companies in the tourism sector such as Galapagos hotels, restaurants, tour operators and businesses by promoting the replacement of plastic bottles for glass containers.

Casa Natura Galápagos Lodge, as a Galapagos hotel committed to the environmental conservation of the islands, will be actively involved in this project, encouraging its guests to reduce the use of plastics, in order to contribute to the care and preservation of this World Heritage Site.
