Volunteers Pave The Way - Literally!
Two friends of ours, German Jens and Czech Zuzka spent some time with us
from 19-29 Aug 2010, as part of our volunteer programme at Sumbiling Eco
Village, a stop in their plan of cycling around the region! During their
stay, they employed their energy and ideas, through Jens' architectural
expertise, to remodel our main hall entrance, and built a pebblestone
entrance walkway complete with drainage underneath. They also lent a
hand to the local villagers who worked with us, in the process making
new friends and having a good time! Jens & Zuzka are just the 2nd pair
of volunteers who have gotten the opportunity to spend time here,
through contacts in the CouchSurfing network. For more about their

Sumbiling Cries Ecolution!
cry of revolution is once again heard! Not with placards and guns,
but with every decision to strive for eco-friendliness! On 10/10/10,
Sumbiling Eco Village's newly christened green warriors will sound
the brave cry of an Eco-friendly Revolution, aptly named Ecolution!
Marking the start of our new proactive approach towards
environmental preservation, our green ethos will become a core value
of business, from the simplest tasks to operations and management
Among the steps to be taken with the start of this campaign will be
reducing redundancy in operation of boats and cars (fuel guzzlers!),
implementing waste reduction ideas, sorting and recycling,
composting, and a big discouraging of plastic use - in fact for
months we had already ceased distribution of plastic mineral water
bottles to guests!
With a bit of symbolism to mark this bold step, we hope to change
not only ourselves but others too, through commitment to the green
cause close to our hearts. We aspire to be a selling point for
simple and do-able ideas anyone can inculcate in their daily lives
to do their part, no matter how small in ensuring our world is best
preserved for a cleaner and greener tomorrow! And then, we can truly
shine for a new meaning of 'Eco' in our name, Eco-Friendly! So join
us in support, because for Mother Earth, the only solution is
revolution! Hear thee, hear thee, our cries of 'viva la ecolution'!
