GIZ promotes free water refill stations in Luang Prabang
Did you know that an estimated amount of 100 million disposable water bottles are consumed by travellers in Laos every year. Most of them are not recycled!
In many regions of the country waste management is simply not available yet, and people burn their waste. This causes a major sorce of air pollution and releases toxic gases. If it is not burned, plastic waste often ends in the rivers.
The toursim indurty in Laung Prabang is leading a campaign to reduce single-use plastic water bottles. Many hotels and tour operators, restaurants and cafes, museums and other businesses in the town center offer safe drinking water refill stations.
