Willmore Wilderness Garbage Defense
There’s nothing like waking up to bright clear skies with spectacular views of the Himalayas. Nepal wants to lift itself out of poverty by expanding its tourism industry but there is no strategy for waste disposal. The Himalayas are in danger of becoming a giant rubbish dump. Heaps of beer cans, mineral water bottles and other materials are dumped on regular treks. Most of the trekkers have no idea of their impact on the remote Everest landscape
The Willmore Wilderness Foundation is attempting to mitigate garbage problems in Willmore Wilderness Park. We have implemented the following:
Willmore Wilderness Foundation trail crews are actively cleaning up garbage in the Park. We are packing it out to the trail heads.
The Willmore Wilderness Foundation has adopted the IF YOU PACK IT IN—PACK IT OUT public relations campaign.
