COCONUT BAY GUESTS AND STAFF TO COMMEMORATE EARTH DAY 2017
Staff and guests at Coconut Bay Beach Resort & Spa will join the worldwide network of tens of millions across the globe in commemoration of International Earth Day this year under the theme: Environmental and Climate Literacy. The commemoration will take place today, Saturday, April 22 (Earth Day) and will kick off at 7 am with an early morning walk to the Moule-a-Chique Lighthouse and back followed by a tree
planting exercise along the Castries-Vieux Fort Highway, near the entrance to Coconut Bay.
Later that day, at sunset, there will be the symbolic planting of a sea grape tree by children of guests, along the southern coastline of the property. The tree planting exercises form part of the Earth Day Network “Trees for the Earth Campaign” which seeks to plant 7.8 billion trees worldwide by 2020, one for every person projected to be on Earth.
The commemoration of Earth Day continues a growing focus on environmental sustainability at the resort. This is exemplified through a number of initiatives including rainwater harvesting and use, sea turtle monitoring, recycling, and re-use of sargassun seaweed, among others.
Coconut Bay will continue the process of tree planting in support of company policy and the Earth Day Network “Trees for the Earth Campaign.”
