Frontiers North Adventures is pleased to announce that in 2016 they will be discontinuing the use of single-use plastic water bottles on all of their Churchill adventures.
Globally, 2.7 million tons of plastic water bottles are used each year.
“Plastic single-use water bottles are not a friend to our planet and so, with this in mind, Frontiers North has opted to discontinue the use of single-use plastic bottles on our Tundra Buggies. “ said Tricia Schers, VP, Marketing, Sales & Media. “Our company strives to not only offer amazing wildlife experiences for our guests, but to do so in a sustainable way.”
In place of plastic bottles, Frontiers North is encouraging guests to bring a re-usable water bottle during their tour that can be filled at an onboard water station on the Tundra Buggy. They will also offer re-useable water bottles for sale at their retail store, Fifty-Eight North in Churchill.
March 22 was World Water Day. In celebration, Frontiers North took the Travellers Against Plastic Company Pledge. The pledge states:
“I pledge to use my company to promote sustainable travel and will encourage travellers to avoid buying bottled water when they travel. In addition, I will provide our travellers the proper information they need to treat their own drinking water. I also pledge to spread the word to travellers I meet, both at home and abroad.”
