Colorado Tourism Office encourages visitors to care for environment with Leave No Trace partnership

Colorado is leading the way in sustainable travel in the USA and recently announced a jointly developed set of principles aimed at guiding travellers to show care for the state’s water, land and wildlife whilst helping to protect Colorado’s special places.

The Leave No Trace – Care for Colorado Principles were developed by Colorado Tourism Office and Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics, through a first-of-its-kind partnership. The principles include tips on how to stay on trails, use bear-proof bins, not to approach wild animals, and to leave plants and rocks as you find them so that Colorado’s nature can be protected.

To bring the campaign to life, Colorado Tourism Office produced a 2.5 minute animated video with an edgy jingle and vibe that takes viewers through the seven Leave No Trace – Care for Colorado Principles. Watch the video here:
