Mövenpick Hotel West Bay Doha planted organic vegetables and herbs to join the effort to support World Environment Day on 5 June.
This is one of Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts properties across Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East’s planned activities in support of the United Nations initiative, which encourages worldwide awareness and action for the protection of the environment.
Established in 1974, World Environment Day is celebrated in more than 100 countries and is widely regarded as the people’s day for doing something to take care of the Earth.
This year’s theme is ‘Beat Plastic Pollution’– a call to action to combat one of today’s greatest environmental challenges, with plastic pollution posing a significant threat to nature, wildlife and human health.
Mövenpick Hotel West Bay Doha aimed to raise awareness of this and other major environmental issues by planting organic vegetables and herbs. Guests will be invited to visit the local farm, where some of its kitchen’s ingredients are sourced, and to learn more about environmental practices and responsible farming. Incorporating these environmental practices not only produces fresh harvest but also sets a sustainable atmosphere in a unique way.
Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts is the world’s most Green Globe certified hotel company, and the World Environment Day initiatives at Mövenpick Hotel West Bay Doha and many other properties globally are an extension of its Corporate Social Responsibility programme SHINE.
