After joining ‘The Green Inspiration by Kempinski’ earlier this year, the Kempinski Hotel San Lawrenz staff organized a cleanup at the San Lawrenz locality with the collaboration of the local council
Being part of this organization, we have created a team of staff members and a hotel mascot who can easily adapt and implement certain initiatives put together by the group. Therefore, continuously meet and exceed guest expectations of operational and environmental sustainability.
Our journey began on a nice sunny but cool day in October, meeting up at our hotel with Mr. Anthony Formosa, the Mayor of our local council of San Lawrenz. Very happy with our kind gesture to help out our locality, he showed us the location in the outskirts of our village which locals unfortunately use as a dumping site even though the councils offer weekly services for such waste collections.
As we were on our way to this area, we were astonished with the marvellous scenery and landscapes; this unfortunately we take for granted every day. But our thoughts came to a pause once we stepped out of cars and gave a closer look at what surrounded us. After an hour of the cleanup, a total of 420kg were collected from just one road. Marvelled by the site of how much waste was collected, we all wondered the same question in our minds... 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, we at Kempinski Hotel San Lawrenz decide to say... Why not do something about it!
