September 20th, 2015:
Skal International and Expedition 196 are partnering together with the Skal Chapters around the world to plant trees in order to offset Cassie’s Carbon Footprint! In addition to advocating Sustainable Tourism by staying in Eco establishments and embarking on Eco tours, Cassie is now contributing by physically planting the National tree of the country she visits, with the extraordinary help from Skal International!
The first tree planting was in Rome, Italy the week of September 20th, wherein two Plum Trees were planted at two Elementary schools in the city. Obtained from a nursery, the Plum Trees were planted in front of both student bodies. See photos below.
