TAP in Kenya

Written on 06 Sep 2013

TAP co-founder Christine Mackay is preparing to bring the TAP Campaign message to The International Ecotourism Society Conference in Kenya starting Sept. 22nd. There will be over 150 tour organizations representing operators, eco-lodges, and other eco-minded travelers. Ms. Mackay’s goals is to spread the word about how easy it is to travel prepared to clean your own water and get those lodges and operators signed on to the TAP Campaign. Have you signed the pledge yet? Take the pledge

The TAP campaign was launched on World Water Day in March this year and has been picking up steam ever since.  The message is simple and clear: lets avoid the trail of plastic water bottles by being prepared to clean the local water and carry a reusable water bottle. Although there are many choices to clean water from potable aqua tablets to filters and Clorox (yes bleach works) and many bottles to carry, TAP has chosen its favorite twoSteriPen and Klean Kanteen bottles to partner up with. Christine will be carrying the new Freedom Steripen with a solar charger to Kenya and you can follow her travels on twiitter @TAPcampaign Our goal at TAP is get all tour operators sharing with their clients how easy it is to clean your own water. It’s safer, cleaner, cheaper and better for the environment

Follow the scene on  the TAP Facebook page and keep on the conference as well as her visit to a Maasai village afterwards.

Your friendly sustainable travelers,

The TAP Crew
