Keep it clean – for your own sake

when was the last time you went some place and loved it. Now stop to think why you loved the place. Was it dirty, stinky – most probably not.

Would you like that place if you are stressed and go to that place for a good, relaxing vacation and find it stinky and dirty. I bet you won’t!

Forget keeping it clean for your kids, for the next generation! Be selfish, think about it for your own sake, keep it clean so that you can enjoy the place the next time you visit.

So, please, keep the place you visit clean. Whatever you do, don’t add to the garbage.

To avoid dirtying the place you visit:

  1. Carry a bag in which you can put the trash (eg. chocolate wrappers, plastic bottles etc.) and then when you reach your hotel room or when you see a garbage bin, you can dump the trash into that.
  2. Try to pick up at least one piece of trash (plastic bottle or polythene bag) and put it in a garbage bin.

Recently I had this conversation with other tweeps and Nisha suggested this:


I saw these guys cleaning up the Kala Pathar beach in Havelock Island, Andaman. Bravo!

If you have more ideas on how to be responsible ‘cleanizen’ while travelling, lemme know through comments.
