60-Plus Earth Hour @ Himawari Hotel Apartments

HIMAWARI Hotel Apartments switched off its non-essential lights for two hours between 8:30pm and 10:30pm on Saturday, March 19, as part of the global 60-Plus Earth Hour event. For the last couple of years, the hotel has been at the forefront in its commitment to protecting the planet.

As climate change accelerates, everyone’s response needs to grow positively towards saving our environment, the hotel said. So, it held a corporate event at its Garden Terrace and it offered food and drink promotions to guests and customers, all by candlelight.

It was a good experience for everyone, the hotel said, and it proves that it is possible to celebrate nature at its best.
