During the planting initiative, all participants were provided with bougainvillea saplings to plant. The hotel general manager, Imad Zaboura explained to the contributors the importance of planting and how it helps to give back to the earth.
Everyone were able to design their own pots and sketched their name on it. “This activity is one of our plenty of initiatives to get our partners and colleagues to be involved with and this will not end here. We will update our partakers about their plants and their growth progress and so even if they are away they will still receive news from their emails,” Imad commented.
“All of the plants will be placed in a dedicated area in front of the hotel were everyone can see it, water them and take care of them if they wish too. We, however will take full responsibility of them and assure to keep them alive and beautiful,” He continued.
