March 20, 2018
Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi, Santa Fe’s leading boutique hotel, will be participating in Earth Hour for the first time on March 24, 2018. As the only hotel in Santa Fe to partake in this event, Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi will continue its longstanding commitment to environmental stewardship through a series of eco-friendly initiatives.
Earth Hour is a global event that mobilizes individuals, businesses and governments to turn off non-essential lights for one hour to spread awareness about the negative effects of climate change. The event first started in Sydney, Australia in 2007 as a grassroots movement and has since evolved into a worldwide phenomenon. Earth Hour 2018 is scheduled to take place on Saturday, March 24 at 8:30 p.m.
“We are incredibly proud to introduce Earth Hour, a meaningful movement that celebrates and inspires environmental protection, to both the local and the hotel community of Santa Fe,” said Gabor L. Vida, managing director of Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi. “Our participation is a necessary acknowledgement of the need for sustainable operations in hospitality, and we will continue to honor the message of environmental conservation as we move beyond Earth Hour into the year ahead.”
In addition to dimming lights throughout the hotel for one hour, Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi will prepare a series of offerings in conjunction with Earth Hour:
