Khiri Staff Join WTM World Responsible Tourism Day

November 5, 2014 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: , , ,

To embrace WTM World Responsible Tourism Day, Khiri Travel staff today donate time and money to our charity arm Khiri Reach and plant trees.

Staff in the Khiri Travel offices around Asia planted tree saplings in the gardens at the Khiri Travel offices in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Vientiane and Yogyakarta.

Other offices partnered with local community efforts like Myanmar Youths in Action (Yangon), the Muslim community at Bangrong pier in Phuket, the Gurung Rinjani National Park (Lombok), and in Cambodia the Phnom Penh team joined forces with the Chambok CBET (community based eco tourism).

Khiri Travel in Phuket mangrove tree planting

In Colombo on a plot of land near the airport, the Khiri Travel Sri Lanka team planted an abundance of fruit trees like durian, mango, rose-apple, rambutan and mangosteen trees.

The tree planting is a way to help offsetting our carbon footprint. Although we understand that a debate exists relating to carbon offsetting and tree planting, we believe today’s activity is a fun and minimal way to reduce our carbon footprint and a great way to raise awareness of the issues.

Please contact us via the below contact form if you have any questions about WTM World Responsible Tourism Day and/or our tree planting activities.
