Environment Policy

Environment Policy

Disrupting the nature by creating man-made pollution has the most adverse effects on the local livelihood as well as on the visitors. Disruption of the ecosystem of forests, mountains, glaciers, peaks, etc. significantly damage nature. We at Devadars give crucial importance to Environment Policy.

Being a responsible citizen we must abide by the practising of throwing litter in the mountains while doing thrilling activities like mountaineering, trekking, skiing, or rock climbing. 

Devadars as a prime travel community is committed to maintaining the ecological balance in all ecosystems we visit, whether it be Himachal, Uttrakhand, Nepal, or Ladakh. We keep our plastics, cigarette butts, or any other form of litter in a separate bin bag. 

Being born in Uttrakhand the founder of Devadars and its associates holds a great amount of respect for the mountains. Our guidelines are simple – Protect & preserve the ecosystem. And it is our humble request to support our initiative in maintaining the hygiene drive. 

Devadars appreciate all the suggestive measures put forward by fellow visitors or anyone. Also, we highly appreciate volunteers for cleaning drive. 

Devadars Environment Policy strives to not to make the mountain region dirty. The other two important aspects of Environment Policy formulates under Devadars include:

1. Over-Crowing

There are many destinations which observe an intense amount of traffic during peak time. We always make sure to not to over-crowd the place. We curate a maximum of 300 people in a month. If the destination is comparatively small, then we accumulate fewer people. Varies season to season as per the footfall.

2. Waste Mangement

  • Bio-degradable/organic waste (food, paper, etc.) – Our foremost try is to create minimum biodegradable waste. We made this policy clear to all our participants, which results in the creation or very little biodegradable waste. And for that little part of the waste, our team collect all of it and dug them deep in the mother earth. It helps the soil to get the nutrients and also helps in vegetation.
  • Toilet waste (Urinal & Latrine) – This is the most tricky part of waste management. As of now, there are only limited options available in India to manage excreta waste and is also not available everywhere. However, we dealt with this situation in two ways:
    1. Low altitude areas – It is easier to find soil in low lying areas. Hence, we dig deep pits (4 X 2 X 1 ft) and cover the same with the earth. This, we agree in not the ideal solution but accepted by the mountaineering authorities (NIM & IMF) in India as of now. 
    2. High altitude areas – The areas that are covered with extremely thick layers of snow and have rocky features or moraines, or have glacial ice, and where digging earth is not possible, we carry the waste back in disposal bags. The bags are finally disposed of in earthen pits in the low lying areas or into sewers wherever available.
  • Non-Biodegradable (Plastic or Glass) waste – These type of waste cause the most damage to the ecosystem and is the biggest threat to the ecosystem. Our utmost try is not to bring any sort of plastic with us, such as Glasses, or plates. However, there are chips packets, energy bars, which most travellers bring along. So we keep a bag with us where we collect all the waste generated while trekking/ mountaineering and throw it properly.
