RESPONSIBLE TOURISM SOCIETY of INDIA

Making tourism a tool for the development of village and local communities, eradicating poverty and giving emphasis to women empowerment are the main aims of the Responsible Tourism Mission.

RAAVISTA : Handmade by underprivileged women in India
Handcrafted by underprivileged women in India. In keeping with the Très 2020 theme: Power of Women, we collaborated with Raavista to create the beautiful handmade Très 2020 bags using pure cotton material. Made by local, underprivileged women from Haryana, every purchase made at Raavista goes into empowering these women towards gaining financial independence.
SHLOKA : Every Purchase Empowers a Woman
The name tags for the show are created by Shloka, a tailoring boutique run single-handedly by Sadhana Rao. While the frames of the name tags are made using waste material from tailoring clothes, the lanyards are created from the left-over material of the Très 2020 stand reinforcement. Sadhana Rao is also the first woman Freemason in India and leads numerous charity projects in the country.
MUKESH : Neighbourhood Carpenter
To minimize waste, we’ve created reusable wooden stands for all our communication, reinforced with pure jute sourced locally. Further, we’ve used ‘green’ paper to print all communication we have at the event. Our stands have been painstakingly created by local artists in Gurugram.
Andaz Delhi : Venue with Sustainability Credentials
A conscious choice of venue driven from Andaz’s focus on small details that power their goals to promote ideas in a large hotel context for sustainable business practices. Adding to this is their visionary approach in taking an airport hotel towards aligning with the unusual and lesser known highlights of Delhi and a fresh and trending approach to hospitality. Much of this is what we choose to look at when we invite a hotel to display at Très 2019.
