Shangri-La's Tanjung Aru Resort & Spa, Kota Kinabalu Observes Earth Hour

Earth Hour Candle

Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia, 24 March 2014 - Shangri-La's Tanjung Aru Resort & Spa, Kota Kinabalu will observe Earth Hour on 29 March 2014 with a variety of planned activities throughout the day.

Advocating the motto reduce, reuse and recycle (3R), resort staff will begin Earth Hour bright and early with a collaborative beach clean up on Mamutik island with volunteers from Sabah Parks, Raleigh International, Borneo Divers and a handful of resort guests. On the same morning, the resort will introduce its official mascot Jaga, the clownfish to drive awareness towards marine conservation.

A week prior, resort staff pitched in to make 1,441 tea candles from recycled cooking oil that were individually filled into used mini jam jars. These candles will be lit during Earth Hour to illuminate the resort's seven restaurant and bars.

Additionally, guests will also be encouraged to conserve water and energy by opting not to change their bed sheets or towels for the day. Between 8:30 and 9:30 p.m., the resort will switch off all non-essential lights in most 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.

"Energy conservation, environmental protection and the reduction of waste emissions are fundamental elements of our corporate social responsibility. We are committed to making a big difference, embracing the world to live more sustainably," said Craig Powell, general manager of Shangri-La's Tanjung Aru Resort & Spa, Kota Kinabalu.
