Tree Planting Session by Samui Villas & Homes on 8th May, 2009
Samui Villas & Homes Co., Ltd. (SVH) is an environmentally conscious tourism company, and will conduct a Tree Planting Session on the 8th of May, 2009 in Koh Samui. SVH staff will plant 220 small trees in the hills above Laem Sor, which have been donated by the Forestry Department in Surat Thani. SVH carefully choose this day since not only is it Visakha Bucha Day, (Buddhism's most important festival which is the anniversary of Lord Buddha's birth, enlightenment and entry into nirvana) but the Thai Government has also declared this day to be Thailand’s National Tree Day.
This is yet another event that declares SVH's commitment and contribution to keeping tourism in Koh Samui an environmentally sustainable business.
SVH is committed to minimize the environmental impact of our business and reduce carbon emissions to protect the natural environment and the local community of Koh Samui. We will develop our business in a manner that takes into consideration the balance between the natural environment, social responsibility and economic prosperity for the benefit of all parties concerned - our guests, our associates, our neighbours and our stakeholders.
The meeting point is at Chedi Laem Sor Temple at 9:00am. We will then move to Khao Kwang Community to plant the trees. Lunch will be served at 11:30 am.
SVH will also give away some of the small trees to "Baan Bophut School", a public school in Koh Samui, together with the planting equipment so that the school children can help contribute to social responsibility and awareness of the environmental friendly concept at an early age.
