On Saturday, March 29th, 2014, at 8:30 pm, Reethi Beach Resort and its Team will take part in Earth Hour—the world’s largest global climate change initiative led by the World Wildlife Fund.
By simply turning out all non-essential lighting – in many public areas and buildings as well as in the staff area and the back of house – we will join hundreds of millions of people across the globe.
Reethi Beach has participated since 2008 and we’d like to invite you, our valued guest, to join us in yet another significant and historic moment. This year we have officially teamed up with Earth Hour Maldives ==> www.earthhour.mv
Since many years we at Reethi Beach have been committed to operate more efficiently, waste less and reduce our environmental footprint. Joining Earth Hour is a great way to demonstrate that the guests and hosts of Reethi Beach Resort care about the planet and want to operate in a responsible way.
Reethi Beach Resort will already begin the initiative in the afternoon, by switching off electricity in many parts of the staff area and keeping only one of the generators running. At 7:30 pm we will SWITCH OFF THE LIGHTS and will having as many outlets as possible lit by candles and alternative light sources and we will continue through midnight. Everybody is encouraged to participate and switch off or reduce the usage of lights, air conditioners and other equipment. Please remember that a TV on stand-by also consumes electricity, as does the mobile phone charger without the phone connected to it. Switch off at the socket!
And the large aim is not to save some energy for a few hours a year (and the energy saved in just 60 minutes is already staggering!) but to raise general awareness. And perhaps you will take a few thoughts and actions into your everyday life.
On the occasion Coconut Spa will offer special treats on the beach, Sea-Explorer will only go out on house reef dives, a clean-up is scheduled for the neighbouring island of Dhandhoo, with Ocean Promise you can pledge your own commitment, a night on the beach without lights will round off the day.
Participating in Earth Hour is easy, fun and costs nothing. To get more information, see the magnitude and inspiring nature of the event and to sign up visit www.earthhour.mv and don’t forget—on March 29 at 8:30 pm, switch off your lights and show the world what can be done.
Thank you very much for your participation!
Your Reethi Beach Team
