Sheraton Pattaya Resort Participate in “Earth Hour 2010″

Sheraton Pattaya Resort is leaving guests in the dark next week. But it’s all for a good cause. Sheraton Pattaya Resort will turn off its lights in observance of Earth Hour, a worldwide event organized by the World Wildlife Fund to send a powerful global message about environmental awareness and caring for the planet. Nearly one billion people turned out for Earth Hour 2009 – involving 4,100 cities in 87 countries on seven continents.

To underscore parent Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide Inc.’s dedication to environmental sustainability, Sheraton Pattaya Resort will also share other energy-saving measures during Earth Hour, March 27 at 8:30pm, including turning off exterior signage, dimming interior lighting and using candle light in restaurants and bars. In addition, the resort will use its in-room voicemail messaging and television feeds to spread the word about Earth Hour observances among guests and get them involved.

Indeed, Earth Hour is drawing strong support from Starwood hotels around the globe.  Last year, the unlit hotels offered striking visual imagery that provided an apt symbol of Earth Hour.

“We are so proud to be part of this wonderful global campaign,” said Michael Delargy, General Manager of Sheraton Pattaya Resort. “Our action plan includes using candle light in our restaurants and bar and switching off our computers for an hour. As for our guests, we’ll keep them fully informed and also give them opportunities to get involved where they wish.”

Hundreds of Starwood hotels around the world will also coordinate Earth Hour awareness events, including community walk-a-thons, public candlelight “unplugged” concerts, and receptions for guests featuring signature green cocktails.

About Earth Hour

On Earth Hour, March 27 2010, hundreds of millions of people around the world will come together to call for action on climate change by doing something quite simple—turning off their lights for one hour. The movement symbolizes that by working together, each of us can make a positive impact in this fight, protecting our future and that of future generations. Since its inception three years ago, Earth Hour’s non-partisan approach has captured the world’s imagination and became a global phenomenon. Nearly one billion people turned out for Earth Hour 2009 – involving 4,100 cities in 87 countries on seven continents.  Last year, 80 million Americans and 318 U.S. cities officially voted for action with their light switch, joining iconic landmarks from around the world that went dark for Earth Hour.  More at; www.myearthhour.org
