Environment and Wellness Week 2019

This year, World Environment Day will be celebrated on 5th June 2019, themed around the increasing issue of air pollution.

Approximately 7 million people worldwide die prematurely each year from air pollution, with about 4 million of these deaths occurring in Asia-Pacific. World Environment Day 2019 will urge governments, industry, communities and individuals to come together to explore renewable energy and green technologies to improve air quality in cities and regions across the world. 

At the Caravelle, we believe that less consumption means less production and less pollution in terms of air, water & waste. Ahead of World Environment Day, we have launched a number of initiatives which significantly reduced the usage of single use plastic across the hotel, including switching traditional plastic straws to either metal or paper straws, plastic bags to biodegradable bags and using glass water jugs instead of sealed plastic bottles. We also hold an Environment & Wellness Week for our staff in our continued efforts to educate our teams on the importance of becoming more sustainable for a healthier life.  

World Environment Day is a UN Environment-led global event, which takes place on June 5th every year and is celebrated by thousands of communities worldwide. Since it began in 1972, it has grown to become the single largest celebration of our environment each year.
