Toronto’s Chelsea Hotel is celebrating “Loving Earth Month” from Earth Hour (March 25) to Earth Day (April 22) by engaging colleagues and guests to minimize environmental and social footprints.
For the 10th consecutive year, the hotel is participating in the global climate change awareness initiative – Earth Hour – on March 25. In addition to going dark, the hotel will further demonstrate its commitment to the environment by providing guests with a host of energy-saving service offerings to choose from during their stay.
To support Earth Hour, the hotel will turn off exterior signage and non-essential lighting; partnership with Mill Street Brewery’s Light’s Out in T|bar; serve “Glow in the Dark” cocktails and live acoustic performer in T|bar.
Throughout Loving Earth Month, the hotel will continue to support green initiatives by offering “Meatless Monday” as a means to reduce the carbon footprint by providing vegetarian menu options. Additionally, hotel colleagues will be encouraged to be more active and use less transportation.
The 10,000 “CheAthlete” Step Challenge – a four-week fun and creative daily initiative – will launch on Earth Hour with a goal of 8,761, 250 steps – enough to cross Canada (7,009 km). On the final day of Loving Earth Month – Earth Day – hotel colleagues will visit Toronto Island Park to assist with the annual spring clean up and join the Downtown Yonge BIA for the “Clean Toronto Together day.”
