Earth Day 2018 is here!
On Sunday, 22nd of April, the entire world will be celebrating Earth Day 2018, and Sea Kayak Halkidiki is joining forces with MEDITERRANEAN SOS Network to contribute to this great event!
It is extremely important for the tourism industry to protect the environment. The tourism industry is responsible for 5% of global greenhouse gas emissions, which has devastating effects on our planet.
That’s why, our Sea Kayak Halkidiki trips and tours are designed to promote an understanding of this unique region’s delicate ecosystem while preserving their natural integrity. We take a low-impact, self-contained, leave-no-traces approach, carrying in what we need and carrying out all garbage waste. After enjoying such incredible natural beauty, we want to know that we’ve left the environment unspoiled for a future generation of explorers. In every single sea kayak trip that we make, we leave the Vourvourou area and the island of Diaporos cleaner than we have found it, so don’t be surprised if you see a small heap of litter on your guide’s boat after a trip!
Environmental Commitment of Sea Kayak Halkidiki
In this respect, our Earth Day 2018 Diaporos island clean up will contribute towards improving the open beautiful beaches of the island and raise awareness of the local tourism community to take steps to honor and respect our planet every day. We firmly believe that a business can operate successfully and still have a minimal or positive impact on the environment and community in which we all live. That’s why we aim to raise the bar in terms of environmental commitment and sustainability in the eco-tourism industry
