To coincide with the Mana Tiaki week from April 1 Cook Islands Tourism with their partners have organised a Green Expo at the Discover Marine and Wildlife Eco Centre in Arorangi on Wednesday April 3 from 9am.

 

The Green Expo will include eight vendors who provide eco-friendly and biodegradable products and services, the vendors are:  Discover Marine and Wildlife Eco Centre Tour, Eco Toilet - PTS Plumbing, Worm Farm - Te Ipukarea Society, CITC, The Paradise Supplies, The Pak-man Store, Sunshine’s Kikau Baskets and Electric Vehicles.

 “The purpose of the Green Expo is to showcase the suppliers and/or organisations who are supplying environmental products or services to their clients,” says Sieni Tiraa, destination development co-ordinator with Cook Islands Tourism.

“This will assist their clients such as the tourism operators to meet the set of standards set out in the Mana Tiaki Eco Certification which will essentially assist them with gaining their eco accreditation.

“The Green Expo will highlight and promote the suppliers on island that provide the materials and services that will help the tourism industry to embed biodiversity considerations and basic conservation efforts into their operations.”

Everyone is welcome to attend to check out the green expo and to see what eco-friendly products and services we have on offer on the island.
