We produce economically viable projects that directly reduce rural poverty, generate productive, sustainable livelihoods, and address climate change.

The Birth of Ecofriend World

Ecofriend World was born on board the Celebrity Equinox on 25 April 2016 after Dr. Bremley Lyngdoh had delivered 7 action oriented Beyond the Podium lectures to the passengers sharing the different ecosystem restoration projects that he was working with, while crossing the Atlantic from the US to Spain via Portugal. The final working group meeting was held on Team Earth Deck 7 of the ship with 3 Teams (Water, Energy and Food) that were created after the lectures for measuring the CO2 emissions of the ship and the impact of the waste generated by the 3000 passengers on fragile marine ecosystems during the crossing. Ecofriend World was created to engage the Green Responsible Cruisers of the Celebrity Equinox to go Beyond the Sea and plant trees in marine ecosystem restoration projects like the Thor Heyerdahl Climate Parks started by Dr. Arne Fjortoft who is the Secretary General of Worldview International Foundation that has been working in the Delta Region of Myanmar since 2012.

Keith Milo 

Keith Milo, the gifted music prodigy, hails from Dallas, Texas. At an early age, he was passionate about singing and learned to play several instruments. He polished his natural God-Given talents while studying at prestigious music institutions, including the world-renowned Berklee College of Music in Boston with famed alumni such as Quincy Jones and John Mayer, emerging as a multi-dimensional musician, composer, producer, singer-songwriter, dancer, director, and actor in his own right. Majoring in Music Business and Songwriting gave him the skillset to excel as a global entrepreneur creating exciting ventures worldwide.

During the quarantine lockdown, Keith produced his latest song and music video, OASIS. On trumpet was his fellow Berklee colleague, famed Arnetta Johnson, who has toured and played with Beyoncé. He teamed up with Sustainable Fashion Designers Inoe Vargas and Xavier Othon, who used recycled materials to create avant-garde custom designs for the Oasis video. Othon has worked with Aaliyah, Apollonia, Beyonce, Britney Spears, Cher, DMX, Madonna, Prince, Ricky Martin, and Slash, to name a few. Together, they designed his wardrobe utilizing rich velvets, intricate metals, heavy chains, pearls, and Elements of Swarovski crystal pieces.

While learning and designing fashion, he began thinking about where products were sourced and wondered if they were made ethically. His goal is to raise awareness so that brands and consumers alike will ponder if the products destroy or restore the environment. A true humanitarian at heart and his own experience being homeless inspire Keith to spread his dynamic charisma, style, soul, and support to those less fortunate throughout the world.

Milo’s mission is to inspire humanity through music and dance to join his movement to plant millions of miracle mangrove trees during the United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration to help restore the balance on Earth. He aims to educate the masses on the importance of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), eco-friendly practices, ethical supply chains, and reducing the carbon footprint.

What People Say About Us

I am delighted to add my support to ecofriend and their crusade to reduce our carbon footprint by planting trees in the most affected areas. It is rewarding and inspiring to see communities working together to make a measurable difference to our planet.

We know that most of the oxygen in the atmosphere is generated — and much of the carbon dioxide is taken up — by mangroves, marshes, seagrasses, and algae in the ocean. Now more than ever, mangrove restoration projects such as those led by ecofriend are critical in the race to keep intact the natural systems that support life on the planet.

In a world where many people appear bent on the destruction, pollution and decimation of nature, how thrilling it is to know that ecofriend has planted, and will plant, millions of trees to restore a balance. Without trees, without balance, the world will not only be bereft of beauty but of the life trees bring to the environment, and the shelter and refuge they provide for wild creatures. I hope ecofriend’s example will inspire people all over the world.

Mother nature has taken care of us. Let’s take care of her in return by reducing the CO2 that we’re emitting everyday. It’s simple. Whenever you fly, you can donate and plant some trees with ecofriend! I’m in. And I want you to be part of the project too. As a girl from Myanmar, I would also love to invite you to come to see the Thor Heyerdahl Climate Park!
