What is the TAP Campaign?

The impacts of plastic pollution go way beyond the mess we see on our travels-it is choking and destroying the ecosystems we hold so dear. The time for change is NOW-join the movement.


To catalyze a self-sustaining global movement resulting in the near-elimination of travelers’ dependence on single-use plastics.


To change the culture of travel and tourism so that all parties take practical steps to reduce the use of disposable plastics.

Who are we?

Founded by the Executive Directors of two US-based sustainable travel organizations; Crooked Trails and Wildland Adventures, the TAP team is a group of committed travelers who believe that we can make a positive impact every time we travel.
