From 18 to 23 March 2013, Shangri-La Hotel, Fuzhou displayed daily water-saving tips to advocate environmental protection for the upcoming Earth Hour. In addition, the hotel will display plasma signage and posters in the lobby, restaurant entrances and other public areas to enhance the awareness of Earth Hour.
From 8:30 to 9:30 p.m., 23 March 2013, the hotel will:
- conduct an unplugged concert at the lobby
- turn off all chandeliers in the hotel lobby, non essential lighting in guestroom corridors and staff areas, as well as all exterior lighting.
- reduce the lighting intensity of each outlet as much as possible.
During the water-saving exhibition, a special 'water-saving tree' will be grown at the hotel lobby. In line with the hotel's water-saving plans, the withered tree will become green gradually. It will be full of green leaves and will sparkle at night. Especially on the day of Earth Hour, when the hotel’s essential lights are turned off, the 'water-saving tree' will sparkle. The unplugged concert will then start in front of this tree.
"We hope more and more colleagues and guests can attend Earth Hour activity with good environmental protection habit, live more green," said Mr. Jens Corder, general manager of Shangri-La Hotel, Fuzhou. "Our hotel remains steadfast in its commitment to building greener hotels, moving towards 100 per cent eco-friendly machines and greening the supply chain."
