Four Points by Sheraton Navi Mumbai Celebrates World Earth Day, Hosts ESG Centric Activities and Invests in the Planet 

World Earth Day

Four Points by Sheraton, a premium hotel in Navi Mumbai, marked World Earth Day 2023 by hosting a range of activities focused on promoting sustainable living and environmental awareness. These initiatives were designed in accordance with this year’s theme for EARTH DAY, i.e., ‘Invest in Our Planet’ and to encourage the community to act towards a greener future, in line with the hotel’s commitment to making a positive impact on the environment. 

While issues such as climate change and a decrease in oxygen levels in the atmosphere are a matter of concern, trees are said to be holding the entire planet together by providing enough oxygen to all living creatures. As part of the Earth Day 2023 activities, the hotel distributed 101 saplings to guest and Associates.  A custom-made DIY germination kit, curated by ‘Book a Workshop’, was handed out for guest who were travelling and couldn’t carry the pot. This kit had a pot, soil, and seeds with a QR code on how to start plant parenting at the comfort of their home or office. The tree selected for the activity are native and draught tolerant species that enhances biodiversity of the property and a healthy mix of fruit bearing, flowering and trees that produce the most oxygen, such as Neem, Arjun, and Amla. The hotel also organized a plastics cleaning drive to address the hazardous impact of plastic waste on the environment. Moreover, the hotel is also promoting sustainable fashion by encouraging hotel associates to upcycle and donate their clothes to the needy. 

The hotel advocated for simple yet effective ways such as ‘Five Things to Consider to Reduce Single-use Plastic & Carbon Emission’ so that individuals can contribute to environmental protection. Additionally, the beverage workshop in partnership with Almitra Sustainables showcased interesting techniques for creating zero waste summer healthy hydrating drink.
