June 7th 2016, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. With lots of enthusiasm, dedication and creativity the staff of the hotel Barceló Bávaro Beach Resort took part for the second year running in a recycling competition to commemorate World Environment Day.
The competition took place within the facilities of the Barceló Bávaro Beach Resort complex where employees from different departments demonstrated their commitment to the environment by undertaking projects with recyclable materials and as well as creativity, the posterior usefulness of their creations played a very important part in the decision made by the jury. This year, due to the effort and dedication shown by the participants, 3 winners were awarded, first place was awarded to all the staff of the hotel Barceló Bávaro Beach Adults Only for their creation of a play park for children, second place was awarded to the boutique department for their dress creations and briefcases made from egg cartons and other recyclable materials and third place went to the Food and Beverage department of the Barceló Bávaro Beach hotel with an impressive full size motorcycle. It is worth mentioning again that all the materials used were waste materials.
“These actions create awareness amongst our staff and guests with regards to environmental issues. The main objective of the activity is to motivate people to become active participants in sustainable development and to promote a change in attitude towards environmental matters so that everyone can enjoy a safer and more prosperous future” were the words of Sandy Pfeil, Manager of the Barceló Bávaro Beach Adults Only hotel.
‘’We have a responsibility to protect our environment because we need it. A lot! We depend on it for our survival. If we destroy the environment this will have a detrimental effect on ourselves, our children and our grandchildren, and so for that reason, at Barceló Bávaro Beach Resort we are making a concerted effort to preserve and save it’’ added Mr. Giovanni Sbrogio, Commercial Manger of the complex.
