The month of July, under the theme Plastic Free July, launched by the Australian Earth Careres, was specially dedicated to the reduction of plastic use in our daily lives.

It’s true that i tis big companies and industries that are responsible for the biggest piece on plastic use, as well as other pollutant materials, but each of us can still contribute with our little share.

It is possible to reduce the use of plastic every day, specially on supermarket and groceries shopping. When it isn’t possible to reduce, we can send it to recycling, thus avoiding that the oceans become their destiny, polluting for decades and entering the food chain.

At Keen Tours we avoid, as much as possible, single-use plastic. During this month, we also tried to spread the Word about this issue on which there still so much work to do. But there is always more to be done… and it’s been a while since were trying to replace the water bottle we give to our clients…

And today’s news is: the clients that bring their own reusable water bottle, whether aluminium or hard plastic, will be awarded a small souvenir: a little jar with honey or jam made in the Peneda-Gerês National Park!

It’s possible to fill the bottle in the fountains spread around the mountains where we go during our tours, and in Braga in public fountains or any tap! In Braga, the tap water is of great quality, and in the National Park even more so, and directly from springs.

This way, those who worry about the future of our planet will have as a gift a local product in a small jar (reusable and recyclable, of course.

We hope than one day we only have to buy delicious honey and jam from local producers and no plastic bottles at all.

Highlights of the Arouca Geopark are the Castanheira Nodular Granite (Pedras Parideiras), the Canelas Giant Trilobites and the Vale do Paiva Ichnofossils. But you can find at least 41 unique geosites. This 328km2 open-air geological museum is protected by the surrounding mountains and crossed by several rivers, being a wonderful destiny for everyone who wants to enjoy canyoning, canoeing, kayaking and mountaineering. The River Paiva rapids are a great example: here you will find some of the best locations in Portugal for rafting and kayak-rafting.
