Green Open Doors for the Million Tree Project

百万植树计划的“费尔蒙绿色之旅”

作者:边秀玲 By: Natasha Pei

September 8, 2012- The Million Tree Project was hosted at the Fairmont Peace Hotel’s Green Open Doors on Saturday September 8th, and hosted approximately twenty Eco-interested friends from around Shanghai’s community. The Peace Hotel opened its doors for a full day to their friends and guests to explore the green initiatives in the historic hotel. Tours started in the lobby and included a very in-depth look at the natural light from the iconic tower, their beautifully engraved and climate-controlled air conditioning systems, eco-service in the rooms, and an organic and sustainably sourced meal. The food was delicious, coming straight from Pudong’s Biofarm, and the menu of the day was printed on an aubergine for each guest. The guests were attentive and quite curious about how they could also get involved with R&S personally. Tours were rounded-out by thank-you speeches from the hotel’s General Manager, the chef, and Roots & Shoots’ Million Tree Project.

As one of the Fairmont Peace Hotel’s environmental initiatives, Shanghai’s Peace Hotel has donated a 2,000 tree forest in Inner Mongolia through the Million Tree Project. To raise this forest, the hotel did activities to get the staff involved in helping and learning about the environment; with this forest, the hotel will offset 500,000kg/CO2 over the next ten years and aid the regeneration of land in Kulun Qi, Inner Mongolia. This is not the first time the Million Tree Project (MTP) has done a function with the Peace Hotel. The MTP has also been a guest at their regular Salons- spreading the word and leading discussions on how to be environmentally friendly in the city.

百万植树计划宣讲于9月8日周六在上海和平饭店举行,大约20位来自上海的生态环保人士受邀参加。和平饭店的大门向它的朋友和客人全天敞开,供大家探索这座历史悠久的饭店的“绿色行动”。我们从大厅开始参观,领略了标志性塔楼的自然光照,内部的精美雕花和气温调控系统,客房内的生态环保服务以及一套有机的绿色膳食。饭菜是从浦东生态农场直运来的,非常可口美味。每位顾客都会拥有一份写在茄子上的当日菜单。过程中客人们对于如何亲自参与根与芽项目都表现得很关心好奇。最后,整个参观活动以饭店总经理,主厨和根与芽百万植树计划的答谢会作为尾声。

作为费尔蒙酒店旗下一贯秉承环保理念的酒店,上海和平饭店的“绿色行动”之一就是向内蒙古百万植树计划捐赠2000棵树木。为支持植树造林,酒店让工作人员参与到环境保护中,并学习相关知识;通过捐赠的这片树林,将在未来10年内吸收500,000公斤的二氧化碳,帮助内蒙古库伦旗地区的生态重建。而这已经不是第一次百万植树计划与和平饭店合作了。MTP同样是酒店常规沙龙的客人之一-----参与并领导如何成为环境友好型城市的讨论。

今年,百万植树计划完成了第一批100万棵树木的种植,这离不开和平饭店的慷慨捐赠。如今,在众多活动幕后支持者的努力下,百万植树计的影响将扩大到内蒙古其他地区,并且让更多的上海人民投入到了第二个100万棵树木的捐赠活动之中。
