Plastic free travel guide

We have turned a blind eye to the impacts of single use plastic for too long, especially while traveling. It is time for the travelers of the world to say “no” to plastic.
There was a time when the word ‘plastic’ was associated with the bank card that you used to pay for a vacation. Nowadays, it is associated with costing the earth. Especially in its single use form, such as drinking bottles, baby wipes, plastic drinks cups, straws, nappies and so on. Manufacturers and consumers have taken the positive, practical uses of plastic and turned it into an omnipresent pollutant, which leaks its petrochemical ingredients back into the earth’s groundwater or directly into the sea when disposed of. But we are aiming to dispose of the disposable at Uneasy no settle. As well as being a plastic free vacations guide, this is also a call to action to the tour operators whom we represent, to see if they can rise to the challenge of becoming free of single use plastics. If you would like to join our movement, don’t just cut up your plastic; cut it out altogether.
