This year, 200 associates from Laguna Phuket, led by Managing Director Mr Ravi Chandran, teamed up with 50 community members and students in this fun-filled and meaningful activity.

In addition to tree planting, the resort also organized a community service activity by hosting lunch and bringing lots of joy to 71 elders at Phuket Elderly Home.

Supported by the initiative’s strategic partners such as Marine and Coastal Preserving Group (Pa Khlok), Mangrove Station 23 (Phuket) and Pa Khlok Municipality, this 11th edition of Laguna Phuket’s annual tree planting event is a part of an initiative that aims to raise awareness of global warming and help build greener communities.
