Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham JBR and Ramada Downtown Dubai launched a 7-Day Challenge, in line with the annual Earth Day celebration. The campaign, which started on 16th April, aimed to encourage earth-friendly habits and raise awareness and on how the associates can contribute to saving the planet through simple, every day steps.
The challenge started off with water conservation on Day 1, saving electricity on Day 2, promoting cleaner air on Day 3, eliminating food waste on Day 4, reducing toxic and non-biodegradable waste consumption on Day 5, and sharing environmental conservation tips through social media on Day 6. To culminate the 7-Day Challenge, the associates created usable crafts and artworks made entirely from recycled products. The associates also submitted a collage of selfies of their completed challenges. Special prizes were awarded to the most inventive and relevant recycling project, and also to the best collage of 7-Day Challenge selfies.
Samir Arora, Cluster General Manager of the properties commended the teams: “I am proud of all the associates who took on the Earth Day challenges. They may seem small and ordinary but these earth-friendly habits can create significant impact in the long run; and we want to emphasize the importance of daily collective efforts in saving our planet.”
Now on its 46th year, Earth Day is officially celebrated every 22nd April around the world.
