We can all help keep Switzerland beautiful by taking our rubbish with us, sticking to the trail to avoid damaging the fragile habitats, and following the rules of the protected areas.

Bring a reusable water bottle

Reduce your plastic waste by bringing a refillable water bottle on your Switzerland trip. It’ll keep you hydrated while you’re on the move, plus you’ll do your bit for the environment.
