They always send us a mind map of what kind of activities they will pursue in the new year. In this year's photo, 'I love local based tourism' stands out. They say they will cooperate with Thammasat University to promote Communuty-based tourism.

 

In addition, they would like to help create a sustainable area by spreading organic models, alternative energy projects, and youth self-reliance activities in Nakkwaugiu Village to nearby areas.

Working with government officials

We joined in the event held at Mae Tha District Office to present our activities and gymnema products. We also appreciate to have them visiting regularly for continuous support to Hug Green. We hope to show more of our work developed in their next visit.

 

Hobby Market

Demonstration of Thai dessert making and coffee roasting attracted customers! It rained a little bit, but we all enjoyed market with food, hand crafts, ceramic, etc. Don’t miss our next market, 9 Aug!

 

Hug Green New Tea Products

Thank you for waiting, tea lovers! Hug Green made a new line of tea. Three kinds of tea all has gymnema as a base since it reduces the sugar level in blood. Three tea are named after Buddhism; Sukoh, Sukan, and Suki, which all means similar to “happiness”. Sukoh has cacaonib and farn (good for women). Sukan has bellfruit, pendan, and farn. Suki has chamomile and farn. We were fortunately invited by P Prince to a coffee cupping event at Hug Cup for not only joining cupping event but also to make our tea debut! Please come and try our new tea!

 

Recycle Plastic Bag

Rajamangala University has helped organic famer group, Hug Nam Jang, to make a new bag. In Thailand, supermarkets stop providing plastic bags concerning environment. We work closely with Hug Nam Jang and has developed their products such as package design of gymnema capsule.

“Building together”

Since the establishment of HUG GREEN, many villagers have been helping us. Elder villagers help put pillars for a shade and share us knowledge, women help us expand the meeting and café zone, and kids also help clear. During working in rain, we still do not forget to dance and smile with kids!

 

Plant gymnema and build nurseries

We visited Ajarn Aey in Rajamangala University and were given another kind of gymnema. We cut them into small branches, put them in a pot, and wait until glowing bigger. We built nurseries that helps visitors understand how it glows. You are invited to come and see!

 

Products development of Hug Nam Jang

With a support from Ajarn Aey, refreshing spray by Hug Nam Jang has become nano, which soak into our skin better. We developed the package design as well. Try the new nano spray to spend your days refreshing and relaxing. Lots of mangos from P Pare were made into tasty dessert!

 

Reflecting our 2 years and a half…

There was nothing or just greens. Now you see the differences. It is still in greens, but we have come “here”, thanks to supports by many people. HUG GREEN keep on the same track. Come and join us to work together for the community in happiness.

 

Joining YMCA activity in Chiang Rai

Thanks to invitation from P Pare in YMCA Chiangmai, HUG GREEN had an opportunity to work to build a check dam with locals, students from Laos who has studied agriculture, and govt. officers. We learnt together our responsibilities for environment.

Warmly Supporters

In recent years, air quality in northern Thailand has deteriorated.

The dry season lasts for several months, and it is said that the old saying is that the dry season is good for traveling

There are several reaseons.

Rapid economic growth has led to an exponential increase in vehicles, factories and power plants. Not only northern Thailand, but also neighboring countries had simultaneous economic growth, and mountains and plains repeated and the open terrain played a part in worsening air quality.

There is also tourism. The center of Chiang Mai, "Old Town," "Nim Man Hae-min" and "Around Ping-river," have long been occupied by foreigners. Many people agree that they lose their own color. The northern part of Thailand is all about national airlines, low-cost airlines... It has become a place for countless travelers. The environmental pollution brought on by this trip is not adequately offset.

Outdoor incineration is the biggest cause. It is also different to analyze the causes of the outdoor incineration. Outdoor incinerationwas mostly chosen by the poor or the minorities who had nothing else to do but outdoor incineration. Recently, it has frequently developed to burn vast land and mountains to operate farms such as corn, sweet potatoes and mushrooms, which are seen in Amazon.

Recently, there are people who are working on making fundamental alternatives to outdoor incineration.

This is to promote sustainable development of the region so that even the poor and the minorities will not have to use pesticides or return to the fire war as soon as they are blocked by farming, farming that can be fancied by humans and nature, and secondary processing based on villages, tertiary services, and community-based tourism.

More than 22 million travelers visit Thailand only on trips a year. Our trip also contributed a lot to their gloomy skies. we should also try to solve the countless dusts that our travel flies. People who have traveled to Thailand, who love Thailand, should be more careful in solving this problem than ever before.
