Meru Valley Resort will host several activities in the lead up to a one-hour blackout to illuminate environmental awareness and needed action on Saturday, March 30 at 8.30pm.
The golf resort will respond to the worldwide event by plunging its greens into darkness for an hour. There is also a great lineup of activities planned for families and golfers, highlighting the impact of individual actions on nature.
In an energy saving effort, golfers are encouraged to walk and refrain from using buggy after 4pm. Along with the big switch off countdown, diners in the resort’s Dome Restaurant will experience candlelit dinner accompanied by a non-stop 60-minute acoustic band performance.
Members and residents of Meru Valley Resort will also join in the Earth Hour by participating in a special Earth Hour morning walk and run event, along with tree planting programme, blood donation drive, recycling campaign and art and craft workshop to upcycle old t-shirts into tote bags.
Resort General Manager, Florence Foo said, “As an environmentally conscious and socially responsible company, it is only fitting that Meru Valley Resort participates in Earth Hour to help raise awareness for climate change.
“We have been rolling out a few green initiatives like the monthly recycling activity and ‘No Straw, No Plastics’ campaign which is a regular exercise and not just a one-off event.”
The Earth Hour campaign in Meru Valley is an annual activity held for the past four years. Everyone is encouraged to show support by pledging to reduce the use of lighting and energy in their premises during Earth Hour.
Beginning as a symbolic lights out event in 2007, Earth Hour has grown into the world’s largest grassroots movement for the environment, highlighting sustainability issues on our planet and the ways that individuals and companies can make a difference.
