Sumatra Orangutan Discovery aims to REDUCE the usage of single use plastic bags and on our jungle treks. Our goal is that ultimately we can eliminate them from all activities.
We are now using I AM NOT PLASTIC cassava bags and life bags for many of our activities.
We also use natural banana leaf to wrap and hold our food.
Every day approximately 8 million pieces of plastic pollution find their way into our oceans. Find out ways you can help be a responsible traveler.
