Maria B Speaks Out for Responsible Tourism in Pakistan
The gorgeous designer has always been vocal about promoting tourism in Pakistan and is a champion for campaigning about responsible tourism. In a latest post about her travels to Skardu, she spoke about the untouched, raw beauty of the terrain and how it is different from Hunza, She urged everyone visiting to take care of the environment so as to leave it pure and save it from trash. It is amazing to see her working so hard to raise her voice for what is important and using the platform she has for the betterment of the society and the country.
Here’s what Maria B highlighted in her post on her personal Instagram account,
“Skardu is a whole new world of wonder. One that is not spoilt and polluted yet like naran and hunza. I really do hope that we can be responsible tourists and educate ourselves so this world stays pure and unadulterated. Pakistan tourism could be the best in the world!!! Allah has blessed us with the best wonders of nature.”
During her travels, Maria B came across trash littered around which tourists had left behind, she emphasised on the fact that due to the direct flights to Skardu from major cities like Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad there has been a recent influx of travellers which has increased littering across the region.
Maria B also took to her blog account and made videos of a forest trail that was filled with trash. Empty soda cans, water bottles and packets of food were covering the grass. The tourism enthusiast also raised questions to cocacola Pakistan, and Lays & Pepsi Co on what they are doing as part of their CSR activities and urged them to pay heed to all the litter that was left behind. She suggested the major companies to start off a cleaning drive in the northern areas as part of their CSR.
Kudos to Maria B for championing a rightful cause of responsible tourism in Pakistan, her efforts are greatly appreciated!
