ECO Travel is getting more and more important all over the world, and is at the forefront of attention in Thailand. Many of you are looking to travel with a lower footprint, searching for ideas on how to explore the country and help save the environment at the same time. We will share our ideas with you on how you can protect the environment with less or nearly no impact on your travel at all. ECO Travel is fun, not a burden.
An example is that Thailand is one of the top 10 countries in the world when it comes to using Plastic. However, Thais are rethinking and adapting very fast. You will see that many restaurants do not offer plastic straws anymore, and that some groceries stores have banned plastic bags. This is a huge development during the last three years, and it makes us confident that Thai people want to go in this direction to save the Earth. We will share developments about this on our site as the process evolves.
Smog is another big environmental issue in Thailand. The Thailand Outdoor Air Quality (OAQ), particularly the PM 2.5 index, is of big concern in Bangkok, Chiang Mai and other regions. We provide you with accurate information and links about this. For instance, the Thai Government ordered 10,000 electric buses for Bangkok which will help lower smog in the near future. You will also see featured on our site many projects driven by big companies in Thailand. There are large efforts underway to clean up canals, and other projects to make Bangkok and Thailand greener, adding value to the world community. Please look for our posts on all these things, and thanks for your interest!
