As part of Plant for the Planet initiative, AccorHotels Greater China has been working in partnership with Zigen Association for Rural Education and Development to develop a fruit orchard plantation for the past five years at the Qinglong County in the province of Hebei. As a part of the Accorhotels Group, our hotel also takes up the CSR responsibility in contributing towards the long-term environmentally-friendly program in the “Plant for the Planet” program of Accorhotels.
This is a unique tree-planting program which benefits the impoverished rural communities of the Qinglong county. We have grown so many apple trees and now, it is time to share the delights of this year’s apple harvest. Our hotel therefore is featuring “Apple for the Planet” celebration from now till December 31st, 2017. During this period, all guests are invited to enjoy festive apple menus specially prepared by our creative chefs at the Sands Western restaurant, Lobby Lounge, and the Red Sun Bar at the 17th Floor, and for every sale of the Apple menu items, we will donate 10% of the income to the Plant for the Planet program.
Time to start the Apple for the Planet, and it’s not only just to support our CSR program, but it’s also for our children’s future, and their children future as well.
