No plastic in Everest

No plastic in Everest

No plastic in Everest we are very happy to say that Everest base camp trek is now plastic free zone. This will obviously help to reduce to the garbage in this region, specially while in climbing season. Climbers use so much plastic products now will be less after the new rule.

Finally after long time discussion the Khumbu Pasang Lhamu rural municipality has decided to banned the plastic product strictly. The world highest peak now will be the plastic free zone. Since so long the area had been suffering a excessive use of plastic in daily lives. Specially in tourism.

The rural municipality endorsed the decision in line with the annual policy and program for the fiscal year 2076/2077. With this new policy people are not allowed to use of plastic below 30 microns and plastic bottles. This rule will be applied from January 1, 2020. Municipality has also decided to distribute five different kinds of bags to the people of the region to replace plastic bags in their daily lives according to Chief Administrative Officer of Pasang Lhamu rural municipality.

Lakpa Tshiri Sherpa, the spokesperson of the rural municipality, tells that the new measure will minimize the effects and this will be lession to the other place as well that plastic in climate change are vital, human health and mountainous ecosystem.

A dozen of snow-capped mountains, including the world’s highest peak Mount Everest (Sagarmatha), are located in the rural municipality. Annually more than 50,000 tourists visit the Khumbu region to observe the mind-blowing beautiful landscape of the Himalayas.

    Thank you so much for excellent information Regarding the New rules in Everest, when i was there last time the trek route has so much trash including plastic bottles and beer bottles. This action will definitely help to stop plastic in Everest region.

    One of the good effort from the Nepal Government to stop plastic using here. The plastic container have been everywhere. When i trekked to Everest base camp 2016, there was so many plastic everywhere. They did not managed plastic carefully. they either burn or bury which is not the permanent solutions. I hope this will down the usage in plastic in Everest region. Even for climbing they use of plastic because of light weight which need to be re-think in my opinion.

    Stop using plastic here is very good work from the Nepal Government. Plastic are the problem everywhere around the world. They comes with many food items as a food company prefers this is one of the cheapest thing to contain the food items. In Nepal they does not have a recycle system so it is good to stop using. I hope it will be one good way to stop pollution in Mt.Everest Trek. The people are doing good job there.

    This is good news to hear. As the environment one of the major issue is plastic. The Himalayas are getting more plastic because of the food supplies. Now they have to stop the plastic bottles item such as coke, fanta, sprite and other food that comes with plastic container. I hope at least this can help to clean Mt.Everest region little bit clean. I have done the Everest Trek so i know the beauty and the bad thing around there. Good Job of the people there and i wish it will be good implement too.
