To make trekking a more sustainable activity, it is important to implement new ideas consistently. Eco-bags, Rain water harvesting systems, Alternative composting toilets and Biodigesters are a few projects in this area.
This project aims to involve villagers, especially school children in our Waste Management and Upcycling Projects. And equip them with the know-how to have their own clean-up drives and segregation units.
One of the goals in the Green Trails Initiative is to have zero waste produced on all our treks. So we ensure that the waste produced is upcycled or recycled. These projects involve making pillows from used plastic, recycled paper and seats from used foam mats.
Tremendous amounts of waste is brought in to the mountains with thousands of visitors every year. We practice collection and segregation of dry waste on all our trails. We also innovate new methods to manage food and human waste.
