Detour is a member of Travelers Against Plastic, (TAP, https://www.travelersagainstplastic.org). Single use plastic is a problem everywhere in the world, but it is an especially large problem in major tourism destinations in developing countries, where waste disposal is limited and recycling is virtually nonexistent. We strongly discourage the use of disposable water bottles, even if offered to you by your hotel or elsewhere. We encourage you to use your reusable water bottle and purify tap water with a good water purifier. Learn more about your water filtering purifying options by watching this short video from TAP.
