As the Raikas of Sadri struggle to make a sustainable living from camel herding, the tour guides in the Sam dunes of the Thar desert seem to be raking it in with hoards of tourist that take their beers out on camel-back, over the dunes and into the sunset . 
Luckily, people like Hanwant Singh and his team at LPPS are working hard to find alternative ways of producing and distributing camel products like camel wool, paper and most importantly, camel milk and cheese, which has incredible healing properties. And thanks to Dee Ann Bauer’s efforts, perhaps we will see a system develop to saddle empty bottles to the camel after dusk and bring them back to dispose of safely.
