Doha, Qatar (March 23, 2013) – Wyndham Grand Regency Doha is proudly participating in the Earth Hour global initiative by turning their lights down and promoting energy conservation. During Earth Hour, individuals, businesses, and governments around the world turn out their lights to demonstrate their commitment to environmentally sustainable action.
Organized by the World Wildlife Fund, Earth Hour has grown into a global movement with over 5 million supporters in over 100 countries since its start in Australia in 2007. Earth Hour 2013 will take place Saturday, March 23, from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
“Earth Hour is a great opportunity to raise awareness of global climate change and sustainability issue,” says General Manager, Ayman Lotfy. “And, while turning off lights can be a challenge for a busy hotel with hundreds of guests, we believe the hospitality industry can and should be a leader in reducing our impact on the environment.”
To recognize Earth Hour, Wyndham Grand Regency Doha was very nice decorated & all the guests came to the CHOPSTICKS restaurant to share the message & enjoy the candle light promotion & their kids enjoyed the kids’ corner.
