It's #WorldEnvironmentDay! As we celebrate change around the globe, we need to remind ourselves how important it is to remain accountable and ensure we do our part towards a sustainable future. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Reducing our environmental footprint, building resilience through best practices, and implementing advanced sustainability technologies are some of the tactics under the PLANET pillar of our sustainability strategy, which identifies measurable goals to be reached by 2025. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ As part of these efforts, in 2019, we drastically reduced single-use plastics onboard our ships. Here's how these reductions were accomplished: ⁠⠀ - By working with our hotel provider, we’ve replaced individually wrapped items like butter, sugar, jam, honey, and yogurt with bulk versions.⁠⠀ - We’ve installed water fountains on our vessels so that passengers can refill their own reusable Quark Expeditions water bottle as needed.⁠⠀ - Cabins have been outfitted with soap and shampoo dispensers to reduce waste, and we provide straws, paper napkins, and receipts only on request. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Learn about our Sustainability initiatives, link in bio! 👆⁠⠀ #TravelwithQuark #Sustainability #ForNature
