#Refusetouse, Steppes Travel continue their campaign against plastics

Steppes Travel has been championing environmentally ethical and responsible travel for almost 30 years, launching their ground-breaking anti-plastic #REFUSETOUSE campaign in 2017, citing hard-hitting evidence of its effects on the oceans and catastrophic impact on marine life.

Taking the ocean imperative from armchair to coal face, Steppes Travel’s conservation ethos and their expert-led ocean focused expeditions open up the world of marine consciousness and discovery in perfect alignment with Blue Planet Live episodes.

Ross Sea Voyage with Friends of Scott Polar Research Institute

In light of Steppes Travels 30thAnniversary, Friends of SPRI have organised an epic 32-day voyage, which will set sail in February 2020. This expedition will take guests to one of the most remote places on Earth, the Ross Sea.  It is synonymous with the history of polar exploration, offering incredible landscapes to match the endeavours of men like Scott and Shackleton. 10% of each passenger booking will be donated to SPRI, to support the research, which echoes Steppes Travel’s unwavering commitment to conserving and preserving the planet for future generations.

 Explore the Galapagos Islands with Jo Ruxton

Steppes Travel are offering the opportunity to join marine conservationist and producer of ‘A Plastic Ocean’ Jo Ruxton on a Galapagos voyage, exploring the archipelago above and below the ocean. Jo will share her views on the devasting issues facing these remote islands and question the impact that the modern world has had on this remote and fragile environment.

As a means of helping to reduce the harmful effects of single use plastics, Steppes Travel have made the commitment to give all of their clients a filtered reusable Water-To-Go bottle and are encouraging their international partners to play their part in eradicating the use of single-use plastics.
