Resort raises awareness

Maciu Malo
Saturday, March 23, 2013

GUESTS, volunteers and staff members of Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa will join millions of people worldwide to raise awareness of the environment and the indiscriminate waste of precious resources this evening.

The resort's learning and development director Susan Waqanivere said Earth Hour was created to unite the global community and encourage people to take action and build a sustainable future for our planet.

"Our small contribution at Sofitel Fiji Resort & Spa will kick off tonight with over 30 staff and invited guests volunteering to help mark the occasion," she said.

"We're very impressed to have such a great response from our staff.

"Together with our guests, staff members will show their respect for the planet by joining together and placing lit candles around the pool and ground."

Ms Waqanivere said the resort would illuminate every corner, from its beachfront and languid lagoon pool through to the grand bure-style lobby. "Sofitel's volunteers will wear Earth Hour T-Shirts and carry torches so they can assist and direct guests to dinner and other areas of the resort while this special event takes place."
