What can I do to minimize my impact in Peru?

There are several things you can do to minimize your impact while traveling in Peru. Whenever possible, reuse your water bottle and take short showers to save electricity. Don't buy any souvenirs that are made with endangered animal products. Supporting Peru’s national parks and reserve system is important, as is staying at hotels that have sustainable practices. You can support local communities by shopping at stores that sell locally produced goods and staying at locally owned hotels.
