Trips with the purpose of exploring the beauty of nature are increasing 3 times more rapidly than other types of trips. In the case of island nations with well-preserved natural environments, there are many more tourists than local residents. What is the main qualm of these local residents? 330 tons daily. The amount of garbage that is sent from tourist destinations in the Maldives to Thilafushi. Tourist destinations must stay beautiful!

Ratio of local residents to tourists. 1:100 That is because there are no methods to send the waste produced by trouists outside of the village or local facilities to process it either.
