5 Cool things with Tivea Koam

5 Cool things with Tivea Koam


Transport: bicycles
For centuries bikes have been a pollution-free means of transportation that do no damage to the world or your wallet. Riding bicycles does not burn petrol, but it burns the fat in your legs, which is good for your health. You can go for a bicycle ride when you are free so that you can hang out and look around Phnom Penh with your friends or your songsa. Last but not least, bikes do not take up a lot of the road, reducing traffic jams and accidents in the city.


Recycled Products:
gathering trash

You may consider collecting rubbish and reproducing it as useful products to be ridiculous or worthless; however, doing such things can save your money as well as your planet. The paper, plastic, cans and bottles you throw away every day can be recycled as useful materials such as shoes, hats, belts and other souvenirs. If you have a passion and love for your environment, start changing your actions with me so that we can preserve this beautiful world.


Destinations: waterfalls
If you feel stressed and tired after working all week, why don’t you go somewhere that makes you feel relaxed and fresh for a holiday? To me, Kirirom Resort is a place I can breathe to get fresh air and relax with my family and friends. Moreover, northeastern parts of the country like Ratanakkiri help me release my stress and tiredness after work. For instance, Pderm Sne waterfall has many beautiful and spectacular landscapes you don’t want to miss. The southwest of the country is quite nice as well. You can swim and have fun with Ta Tai waterfall, which has its own array of some of the world’s most breathtaking views.


Environmental activity:
planting trees

Growing trees is like growing yourself. As the tree gets bigger, you also get taller and older. You can learn to take responsibility by watering it and not letting it die. If you have a garden or balcony in front of your house, you can plant trees that will make you feel that you are living within a forest, even in the middle of Phnom Penh. In addition, trees can absorb carbon dioxide, recycling much needed oxygen into the air, which helps to cool the planet and reduce global warming. Planting a tree costs very little, but the rewards to the future generations are invaluable.

Holiday housing: eco-hotels
Staying in environmentally friendly hotels costs more than staying in standard hotels; however, staying there can contribute a lot to the world. Eco-friendly hotels help reduce energy consumption through fluorescent lighting, recycling programs, water conservation and asking patrons to reuse towels and eat local organic foods. If you can afford such a hotel and you care about your environment, stay in an eco-friendly place to further reduce your impact on the world.
