Shanghai Luwan District Hotel's Event Delivers Donations to Roots & Shoots

Shanghai Marriott Hotel Luwan Raises More Than 500,000 RMB

SHANGHAI, CHINA--(Marketwire - Dec 13, 2011) - In a season of giving, thoughts of friends and family come to mind, but it also reminds us to think about those in need. At the Shanghai Marriott Hotel Luwan, a hotel in the Xintiandi District, it's not always who needs help -- sometimes it's what.

The nonprofit Shanghai Roots & Shoots focuses on the environment, animals and global communities. They launched the Million Tree Project to encourage individuals and organizations to minimize their environmental impact, and then asked that they have a hand in making a difference by donating and planting trees in Kulun Qi, Inner Mongolia, a once lush landscape that's now a rapidly expanding desert.

The Shanghai Marriott Hotel Luwan, a new international hotel in Shanghai, joined forces with Roots & Shoots to help raise more than 500,000 RMB for the Million Tree Project. The cost to plant and sustain one tree is 25 RMB, and each one will rid the air of 250kg of CO2 in its lifespan. The organization has planted 400,000 trees as of April 2010, and hopes to reach its goal of 1 million trees by 2014.

To help raise money, Marriott properties in Shanghai, including our business hotel in Shanghai Luwan, participated in fundraising events, including a gala dinner and auction in late October.

Careful planning went into every detail of our modern, stylish property, from the luxurious bedding and individual climate control in the guestrooms to the 24-hour fitness center and more than 17,000 sq ft of event space.
