Tourism and Waste Management: A Review of Implementation of "Zero Waste" at Kovalam

Dileep, M. R.    (Kerala Institute of Tourism and Travel Studies, India  );
  • 초록

    According to the latest concepts, waste is a visible face of inefficiency in terms of material utilization. Waste handling is a major concern, especially since improper waste treatment causes increased environmental deterioration. The last few decades have seen the emergence of new measures to handle waste effectively, but most of them are not flawless. "Zero waste", an innovation of the 1990s in waste handling, emphasizes planning for the elimination of waste rather than managing waste (Sheehan, 2000, cited in Connett & Connett, 2000, Waste Not, #463, http://www.grrn.org/zerowaste/articles/21st_cent_vision_zw.html, section 3). The growth of tourism as one of the largest industries in the world calls for effective waste management measures. Kovalam, an international beach destination situated in the southwestern corner of India, has been experiencing intensive tourism activities since the 1960s. Zero waste was introduced experimentally by "Thanal", a voluntary organization based at Thriruvanthapuram at the beginning of this century at Kovalam, to ameliorate the burgeoning problem of waste in this destination. In this paper, an attempt has been made to introduce the concept of "zero waste" and to review its implementation at Kovalam.
