Kempinski Hotel San Lawrenz staff volunteer clean up
|Email item||Print item||
After joining ‘The Green Inspiration by Kempinski’ earlier this year, the Kempinski Hotel San Lawrenz staff organised a cleanup at the San Lawrenz locality with the collaboration of the local council. Being part of the Green Inspiration organisation, the hotel has created a team of staff members and a hotel mascot who can all easily interact and implement initiatives put together by the group. Therefore, continuously meeting and exceeding their guests expectations of operational and environmental sustainability.
The clean up took place on a nice sunny but cool day in October, the volunteers met up with Mr Anthony Formosa, the Mayor of San Lawrenz, who thanked them for their kind gesture to help out in the locality, he also pointed out the location on the outskirts San Lawrenz which many local people unfortunately still use as a dumping site, even though the council offers weekly services for such waste collections.
As the volunteers made their way way to this area, they remarked that they were astonished with the marvellous scenery and landscapes which unfortunately we all too often take for granted every day. The volunteers were shocked at the amount of dumped material which spoilt such a lovely spot and. after a very busy hour cleaning up, a total of 420 kg was collected from just one road.
Astounded by the sight of how much waste had been collected, the volunteers all asked the very same question….. Why?
Why did God grant us life on mother earth and yet we still find a way to kill her slowly?
Why we are taught every day at school and work how to recycle and yet we still end up doing the opposite?
Well, the Kempinski Hotel San Lawrenz decided to say… Why not do something about it!
”If one way be better than another, that you may be sure is Nature’s way”…Aristotle.
