The month of May was green and pink all the way. But how, I hear you ask. Well, green, owing to all the environment related activities that took place in the office and pink, for all those things that kept our lady Trippers busy!
Wondering why our lady Trippers are looking prettier than the usual? Well, knowing how important it is for our lovely ladies to look and feel their best, a beauty and grooming session by a famous cosmetics brand was organised in the office. The workshop focused on skin, body and hair care, make-up tips and general beauty and grooming. And it wasn’t just beauty advice that the ladies took away. There was also a fun quiz at the end of the session and lucky winners took home exciting gift hampers!
A health talk on Cervical Cancer was organised in association with Max Healthcare. Conducted by Dr Kaushiki Dwivedi, the aim of this session was to spread awareness about Cervical Cancer, which is the second most common form of Cancer affecting women.Letting people know that timely prevention and treatment can help fight this deadly disease is the first step itself in the battle against Cervical Cancer. We all know the importance of environmental conservation. Though a lot is being done to save the environment, there’s a lot more that can we can do. As an organization, MakeMyTrip has taken several initiatives towards conservation of environment and carries out numerous activities on a regular basis to promote eco-friendly practices.
From dressing up green to going on scavenger hunts; May was a designated ‘green’ month and a plethora of activities were conducted to make our Trippers go all environ-mental! And like everything else at MakeMyTrip, the ‘Go Green Drive’ too came with a bag full of prizes and rewards.Trippers went all out for the eco-drive and came dressed in green, donated books for reading and volunteered for the Green Cleanup Drive. Many lucky ones also received free couple SFL passes and Jhumroo passes at Kingdom of Dreams, Gurgaon.
In addition to all this, WE sent out regular emails with tips on saving energy, advantages of paper versus plastic bags and a carbon footprint calculator to help trippers calculate their own carbon footprint on their gadgets such as the iPad.
The icing on the cake was the exciting Scavenger Hunt; the get-out-and-explore-the-world-around-you hunt wherein more than 50 Trippers participated in teams of 4. Each team went in and around the office searching for green plastic items, pieces of garbage (yes, garbage!), flowers, plants, animals, people wearing green clothes, vegetarians and much more! The team that ticked all or the maximum number of things on the list won the hunt and bagged exciting prizes.
From dressing green to beauty and grooming sessions, the month of May was quite an eventful one. But the ‘green’ fun does not stop here and there’s a whole lot more to come. So keep checking this space for more updates and keep the eco/green drive going!
