While we all grapple with the impacts of a global pandemic, COVID-19 has increased food insecurity for even more of our most vulnerable communities.
One of the most valuable learning lessons from this trying time is that we are capable of change. Change can be hard; it requires sacrifice, a shift in values, and reflection. At 1 Hotels, we aspire to be a platform to spark conversations and transform the world around us.
During these unprecedented times, we can be certain of one thing – we’re all in this together. As most of the world quarantines at home or greatly limits their day-to-day activities to slow the spread of COVID-19, we naturally seek a light at the end of the tunnel.
From the beginning, our mission has always been to honor nature and protect the environment. We honor nature through our design and commitment to protecting it at all costs, and we protect the environment through our practices and the educational moments we share with our visitors.
While there are some major political and transformative changes that need to be made across larger industries, the below are some personal ways you can contribute and do some of the lifting:
As we near Thanksgiving, we give thanks to you – our guests who help us further our mission of sustainability – as well as to our passionate 1 Team members. We also give thanks to nature. Amid family and football, it’s easy to forget that this holiday is about giving thanks for nature’s bounty. But nature provides so much more than sustenance. Livelihoods. Medicine. Adventure. Beauty. Even a solution to our broken climate.
As we look ahead to the future - to 2019 and beyond - we know how important it will be to support the work of organizations centered around curbing climate change and protecting the environment.
To end the year on a high note, 1 Hotels is donating to The Nature Conservancy, Conservation International and The Environmental Defense Fund to support the important work each organization is doing. We invite you to do the same.
The holiday season is a perfect time of year to share gifts that both reflect your values and inspire others to go green. Here are some ideas on how to shop sustainably and ethically for gifts, and how you could encourage sustainable behavior of friends and family...
Doing all the good we can is part of our company culture, and this holiday season we wanted to share some of the small ways we've been giving back.
