The names of the recent signatories have been disclosed side by side with the introduction of the first annual report which summarizes the development made in curbing plastic pollution in tourism in the last few years.


Four accommodation companies like Alila Villas Uluwatu, Sudima Hotels, Phaea Resorts, JJ’s Hostel Mirissa are the new members along with seven tour operators – Adventuretects LLC, Evaneos, Secret Scotland Tours, Europamundo, SEE Turtles, Travel.Bhutan and Turama Pacific Travel.
