Sustainability is at the forefront of Tourism Kelowna’s operations at the Kelowna Visitor Centre (KVC) where new initiatives and exciting changes are frequently happening. Aligned with our pledge to foster the preservation and continual restoration of our land, resources, and communities, we are thrilled to announce that as of April 1, we are partnering with One Tree Planted to plant a tree for every purchase made in the Kelowna Visitor Centre or through the Love for Kelowna online store.
Since we try to stay local as much as possible with all our efforts in the KVC, we are delighted that we can select where the trees are planted, ensuring this initiative will see trees planted here in British Columbia. We will keep you updated each month on our Love for Kelowna Facebook and Instagram pages with how many trees you have helped us plant.
For more information about this new partnership, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or (250) 861-1515 ext. 220.
