Home>>Our Playground – Ecological Responsibility
Ecological responsibility is a term you hear more and more of these days. There are about 200 non-governmental organizations dealing with the protection of nature and environment in Croatia, of which one-third are registered in Zagreb. The majority of these organizations are professional organizations with members from the scientific community. Preservation of biological diversity is of special interest to various ecological associations and alpine clubs, such as the Croatian Mountaineers Organization.
When you kayak, hike, bike, climb, eat, drink, and raft with us you can be sure that environmental awareness is as close to our hearts as the act of being in the great outdoors. As Croatia Outdoors’ owners, we — Vedran Forko and Marko Grubišić — have not just made a o career out of learning and mastering the many ways to enjoy adventure activities, we’ve grown up in the country’s mountains, on its rivers, and on its sea. Though relaxed by nature, we are militant about making sure the Earth generally and our country specifically is kept as healthy as possible.
We have a strict pack-in and pack-out policy on all of our tours. We teach our clients about ways to enjoy adventure in the most earth-friendly way possible and we are looking forward to bring the next generations up in a country that is as pristine and pure as it was during our youth. Croatia is blessed with a relative dearth of industry … minus tourism. As citizens of Croatia and willing agents of change, our goal is to spread the word about environmental ethics and ecological responsibility. We hope you share our goal.
Over-consumption and the garbage it creates is a growing problem for today’s society in general. Each year we recycle more, but we also create more garbage. It is a problem we all help to create, but not everybody is on board with also helping with the solution – It is horrifying to think, while kayaking in our clean Adriatic sea, about the consequences of our daily actions, like the Great Pacific garbage patch, so consume less and reduce, reuse and recycle. We are giving our best to stick to some practical advice on how to minimize our garbage output from WWF.
