Jumeirah Vittaveli Recycles Christmas Tree
Every year Jumeirah Vittaveli decorates the resort creatively to go with the festive celebration. For this year’s decorations the biggest challenge was the annual Christmas tree – made up of an iron structure, lit from within and covered by transparent wrap, the tree glows each night in a colourful display of Christmas colours.
The resort’s tireless team members worked throughout the year on collecting used food wrap from the kitchen in preparation for the grand Christmas tree unveiling in the middle of the lagoon. The food wrap will be dismantled after January 6 and packed in separate 500g parcels.
Each guest who takes one parcel home with them to deliver it to a recycling facility will be rewarded with a USD 20 resort credit by Jumeirah Vittaveli – an initiative that reduces waste in the beautiful Maldives while making us all remember that Christmas is the season of giving and supporting each other.
