Friday, September 22nd will surely go down in history as a challenge and a test, as La Cabana Beach & Racquet Club is attempting to introduce a Car Free Day, an opportunity for the resort to take the first small step towards making a big environmental difference.
The resort will be asking its employees’ cooperation that day, instructing them to use more public transportation or come to work on self propelled vehicles, such as bicycles and tricycles, even rollerblades, in an effort to reduce the deteriorating quality of global air and alleviate the related health problems such hazard brings.
The Car Free Day will facilitate a learning opportunity raising awareness of the issue of smog and air pollution, as well as constant climate changes and global warming, which are the cause of much destruction worldwide.
Maritza Chomba Odor, Project & Administrative Coordinator, La Cabana Beach & Racquet Club informs that the resort wants to promote alternatives to car-dependence on the Car Free Day, September 22nd , which will be made into an annual celebration.
Odor also reveals that La Cabana Beach & Racquet Club will also approach other hotels to join, with the intention to transform that one day into a community awareness period.
The day is meant to promote more sustainable ways of transportation and new ways of building, allowing streets to be a living space where children can play, rather than only transit spaces, she explains. Our vision, she concludes, is to reduce the human impact on the natural environment while improving the quality of life for all.
