Demonstrating its commitment to protecting the environment and mitigating climate change, Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta will participate in Earth Hour, a global Worldwide Wildlife Fund for Nature (WWF) climate-change initiative, for another consecutive year.  The hotel stated its commitment at the WWF press conference held at Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta on Thursday, 16 March 2017.

The panellist for the press conference are include CEO WWF Indonesia: Benja Mambai, Corporate Social Responsibility Manager Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta Bintari Rarastiwi, and Indonesian celebrities Davina, Nugie, Jessica Mila and Michelle Joan as the WWF representative for Earth Hour attended the press conference titled “Earth Hour 2017: Shine a Light on Climate Action”.

The conference itself was a joint commitment to switch off the lights on Saturday, 25 March 2017, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m.  DKI Jakarta’s Earth Hour acts will be remarked by switching off the lights several public places.

Meanwhile, Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta will participate in Earth Hour with a 60-minute energy-saving action by turning the lights off in most back of the house areas and dimming the lights in its public areas, restaurants and hotel exteriors.

Guests will be encouraged to participate in the unique coconut candle-lighting process in the hotel’s garden, which will naturally illuminate the premises during the hour.  Hotel colleagues collected used coconut shells from the kitchen and utilised them as candle containers, arranging around 100 coconut shells to form ‘60+’ (the Earth Hour symbol). Hotel bartender will create a special coconut mocktail from the coconut water and fruit for guests to enjoy during the hour.

Beyond the hour, the hotel will present a Sunday Earth Market that displays locally sourced food products on Sunday, 26 March 2017, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  The Sunday Earth Market aims to show appreciation, spread awareness to the public and encourage the public to buy from local producers, as opposed to buying imported products, to minimise food transportation, resulting in a smaller carbon footprint.  Guests may shop for products ranging from coffees, honey, fruits and veggies, rice, soya and almond milk, and delicious snacks.

Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta will also present a Rooted in Nature menu highlighting sustainable sources of food products.

Dishes on offer will include produce and herbs grown on the hotel grounds, locally sourced organic vegetables and fruits, line-caught fish, free-range poultry and beef, and more.  Guests may explore the special Rooted in Nature menu during the Saturday dinner and Sunday brunch at SATOO, the hotel’s international buffet restaurant, on 25 and 26 March 2017.
