To set off "Environmental Awareness Month" we wish to encourage the participation in green initiatives and Earth Hour 2009, an easy to participate event, Miranda mentioned.
Earth Hour is an international event held annually. It was created by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). This event is held every last Saturday of March, where each family home and company is notified of the request of turning off all unnecessary energy and appliances for an hour, in order to promote the quest of fighting against climate change.
This year, on March 28 at 8.30 p.m, millions of people around the world will turn off their lights for an hour. The purpose of this is to link together a billion of people that hail from more than a thousand cities and create a single global effort that will help develop key conversations about the future of the planet.
Marriott International is encouraging its 3000+ hotels around the world to take part in this global calling. Earth Hour 2009.
In addition, Marriott International has designed April as the "Environmental Awareness Month" in order to communicate and celebrate the company´s support towards the development of sustainable operations, inform about environmental issues and involve its associates in environment-related activities.
