Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort Earth Day

May 12, 2021

Earth Week Celebrated at the Hilton

Hilton Aruba celebrated Earth Week in April, a time set aside to appreciate the beautiful planet we live on and give back to the environment.

Resort Team Members joined together in several programs designed to raise awareness, with a schedule of entertaining and educational activities, focusing on reducing, recycling and reusing. 

Working with a local company, Fantastic Gardens, the resort planted an additional tree on property, a welcome addition to its already lush tropical gardens. 

In the spirit of gardening, Team Members planted and seed-swapped having taken an interest in growing vegetables and fruit since the beginning of last year. Seed and plant swapping gave Team Members an opportunity to acquire plants they don’t yet have. 

Fantastic Gardens also conducted a Basic Gardening Workshop, in-house, providing hands-on practice with plants, fertilizers, soil, pots, and instruction regarding the life cycle of plants. 

Additional projects included the launch of a new refillable water station for Team Members, designed to lower the consumption of single use plastic, and a Clean Your Plate campaign in which the Team Members’ cafeteria served a Waste-Free menu, prepared without bones, shells, or peels, in order to avoid waste of pre and post production.

The resort thanked Fantastic Gardens Aruba for participating in the week’s events. Fantastic Gardens Aruba, since 1983, is the go-to address for anything that grows on the island, sharing passion and love of plants and nature with the Aruban Community to ensure the further green development of the island for the benefit of tomorrow's generations.
