The Globus Family of Brands chose World Environmen

first_imgThe Globus Family of Brands chose World Environment Day yesterday (Wednesday 5 June) to announce plans to increase sustainability efforts and reduce waste while also contributing to The Ocean Cleanup: A non-profit organisation focused on ridding the world’s oceans of plastics. “It’s never been more important for companies to take a role in cleaning up our planet while also reducing and recycling waste,” said Gai Tyrrell, Managing Director Australasia of the Globus family of brands. “Now, we’re asking our travellers to join us by favouring electronic travel documents over paper ones. When they do, our planet benefits.”As part of its increased sustainability efforts, the Globus family of brands – comprised of Globus, Cosmos, Monograms and Avalon Waterways – is asking travellers to choose e-documents over printed travel itineraries, prior to their holidays. When they choose the eco-friendly option – eliminating paper and plastic use and waste – the Globus family will donate funds to The Ocean Cleanup to aid in their unprecedented efforts to clean-up the world’s oceans.In addition to encouraging travellers to get involved with the Globus family’s efforts to support The Ocean Cleanup, Avalon Waterways – the company’s award-winning river cruise operator – is increasing efforts to offer cruisers sustainable, responsible river cruising.“The vibrant and beautiful natural surroundings of the world’s rivers are a benefit of river cruising,” said Pam Hoffee, managing director of Avalon Waterways. “And it is up to Avalon – and other river cruise companies – to preserve this precious environment around us. As a result, we have taken great strides to improve monitoring and measurement to reduce our environmental impact, to save water, to limit waste and to foster a sustainability culture among our crew and guests.”Over five trillion pieces of plastic currently litter the ocean. If left to circulate, the plastic will impact our ecosystems, health and economies. The Ocean Cleanup has developed advanced technologies to eliminate plastics in our oceans. The non-profit organization has plans to cleanup 50 percent (50%) of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in five (5) years.
