Yesterday, we shared some of the ways our domestic parks are honoring Earth Month and how Walt Disney Parks and Resorts keeps the conservation celebration alive year-round in a number of ways, such as using alternative fuels to power attractions, raising environmental awareness through the efforts of Disney’s Animals, Science, and Environment team, and protecting wildlife and places through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund. Today, we thought it would be fun to take a trip around the globe for a look at what our international parks are doing for Earth Month!
- Guests at Hong Kong Disneyland’s hotels can practice upcycling – the process of taking discarded or unwanted materials and making them into new items of better quality – when they make their own souvenirs.
- Earlier this month, Disney VoluntEARS in Hong Kong participated in several projects to help green our planet. These Cast Members planted trees at Island District Tree Planting Day, two organic gardens at schools in partnership with Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots and the Disney Friends for Change Project Green Challenge, and a temporary playground at Inspiration Lake using natural materials such as bamboo and hay.
- Disneyland Paris hotel guests will be treated to trailers from Disneynature films as well as nature-related arts and crafts activities. In addition, Cast Members participated in a clean-up of the green spaces at Disneyland Paris. Their efforts helped collect more than 600 pounds of waste.
- Cast Members from Shanghai Disney Resort, which is currently under construction, will join local students in planting an organic garden at their school. The garden will be one of several that Shanghai Disney Resort is helping to plant as part of the Adopt-A-Garden program in partnership with Roots & Shoots.
Join us in April or any time of the year to renew your commitment to nature and be inspired to make a positive difference in the world!
