We are very happy to be working with Starwood Hotels and Resorts, thanks to a good friend of ours Kristel Dierckx, who recommended WCAFI to Starwood whilst she was working in one of the hotels in their group earlier this year.
Starwood used the Clean Air Tree Kits as a gift for the attendees of their EAME “Roundtable Events” (internal divisional conference) in Barcelona this year, because they recognize the importance of educating and training associates on environmental sustainability initiatives.
Starwood also have a great initiative called the Global Citizenship Activities where the attendees of the conference took part in team motivational activities that benefit the local community and/or environment. Activities included; preparing meals for the food bank, creating an ebook for children, raising money for UNICEF, beach cleaning and tree planting in the local Zoo.
I was lucky enough to be part of organizing the tree planting in Barcelona Zoo and you can see some greet pictures in the slide show below.
Well done Starwood for all the excellent ideas and team work that make such a big difference! It was a pleasure to be involved.
