Water

Water is a precious resource. It is very scarce in many tourist destinations and should not be wasted mindlessly.

Karikatur
  • Inquire about the water conditions in your destination and choose hotels, which adapt their water use to the environment. Spacious hotel complexes with park-like pastures that need constant watering have tremendous water consumption.

  • Especially during the wet season, water is often even scarcer due to muddy water pipes and conduits as well as missing opportunities for water purification.

  • Only take short showers when water is scarce. Turn the tap off while brushing your teeth and report dripping taps. Refuse to have towels and bed linen changed every day in order to save water and chemicals.

  • Golf players should be aware of the fact that golf courses need especially exhaustive watering and excessive fertilisation, which pollutes the soil and ground water.
