Thailand Green Award at ITB in Berlin
The princess Ubolratana Rajakanya of Thailand presented the Thailand Green Award 2013 in the category “Large tour Operators” to Barbara Glanz, GM Intrepid Travel Central Europe, during ITB in Berlin. Since 2006, Intrepid Thailand travellers each receive a special shoulder bag, emblazoned with the call to action “Say No to Plastic” in Thai and English. The bags are produced by a women’s cooperative, Tae Moh Hai. The project aims to create work and income for local families and also to motivate people to understand the importance of conserving the environment.
