Waste pollution has reached an alarming level for us while on a bike trip, says Mongolian family
Mongolia, well known for its nomadic traditions, natural beauty and wonderful landscapes, attracts many international travelers and visitors every year. Domestic tourism has increased as well and many Mongolians now travel locally to visit their family members and relatives or to explore the countryside.The number of exemplary young families who increase public awareness and attitude towards waste pollution among their communities is growing, mainly as a consequence of the enormous amount of waste left in the environment by domestic travelers. Caritas Czech Republic (CCR) in Mongolia made an awareness-raising video about waste pollution under the “Sustainable Plastic Recycling in Mongolia” project with a family who promotes the use of bicycles. Purevdorj, who took part in the video, will share his family’s experience of an eco-friendly lifestyle. N. Purevdorj’s family has been riding bicycles for many years after giving up cars that cause air pollution and heavy traffic jams in Mongolia.
