With 700 million international tourists per year and 500 billion dollars in annual receipts, tourism is one of the biggest industries in the world, with an equally serious environmental impact. The use of freshwater and the generation of solid and liquid waste from tourist operations causes serious environmental degradation. This manual looks at small and medium enterprises which represent 80 per cent of tourism businesses worldwide. Whilst some are committed to sustainability, most are not. In many countries few if any regulations exist to encourage or force operators of tourist facilities to optimize resource consumption. A clean and healthy environment to attract tourists is one of tourism's most valuable assets. This publication aims to close this gap and UNEP hopes to speed up the process of implementing sustainable water and waste technologies in the tourism industry.I Donate old utensils and kitchenware to employees or charities.
