Earth Hour is coming up on March 31, and the Delta Sun Peaks Resort is taking notice. Local artists will play live acoustic music during a special candlelit dinner, featuring Farm to Fork sustainable menu items.
“Community engagement is an important part of Delta Greens,” explains David Bird, senior vice president of operations for Delta Hotels and resorts. “We’re excited to provide these unique energy-saving services in addition to joining millions of people around the world in turning off lights.”
Delta Sun Peaks is one of Delta’s 43 properties across Canada that will be turning off lights in support of Earth Hour.
Just in time for Earth Day 2012 on April 22, Earth Day Canada is imploring Canadians to Take it Up for Earth Day by taking on new actions that are healthy for the environment and for themselves. The campaign offers tips and resources to help people make better decisions about their environmental footprint including what they eat and drink, how they move and the products they use.
The Take it Up campaign tracks individual and group commitments showing that healthier alternatives, even in the short-term, can lead to lifelong thinking about environmental impact.
The campaign is the brainchild of Earth Day Canada, a national charity that provides Canadians with practical advice and tools to support a healthier environment.
Participants can register their commitments in March and April and can commit to one to four weeks of action.
