Zero Waste Visitors
Due to its beautiful nature and mild climate, Montenegro has become a very popular destination for visitors, tourists, expats and digital nomads from all over the world.
Our country has about 14% of its land and 1% of the sea as protected areas. Montenegro is in the early stage of the transition from traditional tourism to a more sustainable one.
While figuring out how to become more resilient to the increasing influence of tourism on its nature and improving its waste management infrastructure, it is important for everyone visiting to be mindful and decrease their impact on the Montenegrin environment.
Help Montenegro on its path to sustainable tourism
What you can do?

Help us inspire our local citizens
Help us inspire our local citizens who are less travelled to reduce their waste (suggest cashiers to ask first before handing out plastic bags in shops, share with them our Citizen page in Montenegrin language, etc)
Explore local markets
Explore local markets and choose small family restaurants to support the local economy. Don’t forget your reusable bags and boxes!
