Cleanliness is everyone's business, for the fifth consecutive time, the city of Annecy is renewing its support for WORLD CLEANUP DAY. This international association organises a day of litter collection. In Annecy, Annecy-Le-Vieux, Cran-Gevrier, Seynod, Pringy, Meythet... the event will take place on Saturday 17 September 2022 between 9am and 12pm in around twenty places in the city.
Cigarette butts, plastic bottles, surgical masks, leaflets...in 2021, 3.3 tons of waste were collected in Greater Annecy during WORLD CLEANUP DAY. This year, the objective is even greater : the association hopes to mobilize 5% of the French population, i.e. more than 3 million people, which represents more than 16 times the Annecy’s population !
For this major clean-up operation, LA VILLE D’ANNECY
provides gloves and bags and takes charge of collecting the waste collected.
To consume better, throw away less, produce better, the WORLD CLEANUP DAY aims to make us aware of our planetary impact. During the day, the international association brings us daily solutions to be more respectful of the planet.
Tous responsables : Le Pélican s'engage
For its construction, theLE PÉLICAN hotelwanted to minimise its carbon footprint. To achieve this, the entire district was connected to a 12-metre deep thermal loop in Lake Annecy. This local and renewable energy source uses the lake water to heat and cool the hotel and other buildings in the area..
In addition, LE PÉLICAN has joined the worldwide "1% for the Planet". So, 1% of its turnover is donated to associations approved by the collective that work to protect the environment. A great first for a French hotel !
Every daily gesture counts that’s why the LE PÉLICAN hotel is also involved in a humanitarian and social initiative. Indeed, the hotel is committed to giving access to hygiene to the most disadvantaged. The soaps are recycled for then UNISOAP
association, which transforms them into resources for those in need by giving them a second life.
The PELICAN hotel is takig it a step further In partnership with BOUCHONS 74
, the hotel also recycles plastic and cork stoppers. The funds collected by the association are used to finance actions in favour of people with disabilities, while at the same time helping to reduce waste.
