Going green is an important awareness that has been spreading throughout the world, and QNET makes sure we are also moving toward sustainability. On Saturday, 8 March 2013, QNET Bangkok staff gathered to be ‘MAD’ or Make A Difference by planting mangrove trees at Bang Poo Seaside Resort, Samutprakarn province (a part of the Royal Thai Army’s rehabilitation and relaxation centre, founded for mangrove forest conservation).
The QNET Bangkok team was warmly greeted by the army personnel who helped explain the endangered situation of mangrove’s coastal zone – greatly affected by erosion, deforestation and extreme weather. The team had fun learning about different types of mangrove plants and animals, and how to properly plant mangrove trees.
Then, they all headed to the mangrove forest area to start planting. Everybody followed the staffs’ instruction strictly. After that, a customary group photo was taken to be shared with the rest of the QNET family and the day ended with a well-deserved and delicious vegetarian lunch for all!
