green initiatives

An increasing issue worldwide is to try and reduce your carbon footprint, plastic waste and to be ecological minded.

For us, as a young family working with people with young families, this is very important! We’ve listed here numerous actions we take to try and be ahead of ourselves. Besides the actions we take we also communicate with all our members about what and why it is that we do that. So our mindset is carried on to a few households in Siem Reap.

And we’re taking part in meetings for the Siem Reap Green Committee to be an active member in pushing for a positive environmental change.
