To engage to the theme Earth Hour activity of this year to improve the smog weather in China, Shangri-La Hotel, Baotou will host a 10 kilometres Saihantala Urban Grassland Walk at 9:00am on 28 March 2015. Over 400 people enrolled of the event through hotel official WeChat. This event is to call people to change the climate change and against smog weather.

On 28 March 2015, before the events, hotel together with residents guests makes a big “60+” logo of Earth Hour on the hotel building by guest rooms’ light. It’s to call all the Baotou people take part in the activity to turn off the light for one hour. Between 8:30 and 9:30 p.m., Shangri-La Hotel, Baotou will turn off its lights in back-of-the-house areas and dim the lights in public areas, restaurants and the hotel exterior. Guests will be encouraged to participate by turning off the lights in their guestrooms, using linen napkins instead of paper napkins, and taking leftover food home to reduce food wastage.

Participating in Earth Hour is only one small part of Shangri-La Hotel, Baotou’s environmental protection efforts. Shangri-La Hotel, Baotou strives to provide guests comfort while protecting and caring for the environment. This includes regular green activities and energy-saving and emission-reducing projects. In December 2011, the hotel announced that it would cease serving shark fin in its restaurants and would no longer accept new orders for shark fin products in banqueting. As a certified ISO 14001 hotel, Shangri-La Hotel, Baotou puts all effort into energy efficiency compliance. Aside from this, the hotel uses biodegradable and compostable plastarch material, which degrades by around 70 per cent in 80 days, for all toiletry packaging. Shangri-La Hotel, Baotou launched a paperless registration service on 11 April 2013. This environmentally friendly service saves about 300,000 pieces of paper.

“As an environmentally conscious and socially responsible company, it is only fitting that Shangri-La Hotel, Baotou participates in Earth Hour to help raise awareness for climate change with our employees and guests,” said Steven Zhang, general manager of Shangri La Hotel, Baotou.
