Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket joins 2012 Earth Hour campaign
Phuket, Thailand – Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket will join the worldwide 2012 Earth Hour effort on Saturday 31 March 2012 from 8.30pm to 9.30pm (Phuket local time).
This year’s annual global event is part of an ongoing campaign, which this year is expected to involve in excess of 5,200 cities, towns and municipalities in more than 135 countries. To mark the occasion, lights will be switched off on the exterior of the building, as well as in the restaurant, main lobby and other public areas.
“The climate is changing and The Earth is warming up. This is a serious global environmental scenario issue on the international agenda,” said, Mr. Peter Komposch, General Manager of Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket. “People in every country need to encourage their citizens to be more concerned about this in their daily lives.
“If we look back to 2010, we faced a number of natural disasters around the world, from the tsunami in Japan to the flooding in Thailand, as well as a series of earthquakes and other ‘natural’ disasters. These should be seen as warning signs from Mother Nature. It’s never too late to start caring, saving engery and using our resources more wisely. Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket has implemented the EarthCheck programme in operating our business and also organizes regular staff training sessions.”
To mark the occasion, Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket invites resort guests and Phuket residents to gather at a specially created ‘Earth Hour – Long Table Evening’ event, featuring a four-course wine dinner set on a 10 metre-long dining table situated at Casuarina restaurant’s beachfront. Our chefs will prepare dishes using carefully chosen, locally grown, seasonal and/or organic ingredients. Additional activities, including the release of paper larnterns, will be held on Bang Tao beach afterward.
