These small steps toward sustainability include picking up any trash one sees both at home and at tourist spots, respecting any locals and the heritage sites, being open, warm, and welcoming to Filipino and foreign tourists, opting for reusable instead of disposable items, biking and walking more, using less electricity, and more.
