On the morning of 6 March 2016, Shangri-La Hotel, Wuhan organised tree-planting activities for its Chinese and foreign guests, management team and staff - who together took the subway line 3 to the Wuhan Citizens Home.
“Planting trees is a beneficial action for our next generation.”
A group of more than 30 people took the subway to participate in the hotel’s first social activity in 2016 - to plant trees together. The activity is a practical action to put into practice the hotel's green environmental protection ideas. Everyone used the hotel’s customised version of Wuhan Tong to take the metro. After a 1-minute walk to the subway entrance and 10 minutes' drive, the people arrived at the planting venue.
At Wuhan Citizens Home, everybody worked with enthusiasm. What they planted is a symbol of friendship and hope - the Wuhan city tree: metasequoia. This activity not only set an example for the next generation, but also demonstrates environmental protection without borders.
On site, media recorded the creation of a low carbon footprint lifestyle, sharing a harmonious picture of the green homes.
