Celebrating the Earth Day that falls on 22 April every year, the multi-brand Accor hotel complex in Bandung, Pullman & ibis Styles Bandung Grand Central took action to care for the environment on Thursday, 21 April 2022. The action was implemented by initiating an education program about the food waste recycling process with the Jagabumi Community and GUPAY (Gerakan Urang Peduli Anak Yatim) to support the PLANET 21 program which is Accor’s global sustainable development program. This action was carried out as a form of Pullman & ibis Styles Bandung Grand Central’s concern for the earth and local communities by protecting and cultivating the environment. 

General Manager of Pullman & ibis Styles Bandung Grand Central Dominique A. Albero and seven female leaders of Pullman & ibis Styles Bandung Grand Central participated in a food waste education activity with 21 children aged 7 to 10 years, accompanied by the practice of composing fertilizer for 21 seeds. The number on the PLANET 21 logo inspired the total of seeds. This activity started at 04.00 pm, with the opening speech from the General Manager and representatives of the Jagabumi Community and GUPAY.

This collaboration action between Pullman & ibis Styles Bandung Grand Central, Jagabumi and GUPAY is also a form of CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) initiative as a part of the hospitality industry in West Java, especially in Bandung. Not only composing fertilizer from food waste, each child can also bring their composted gardening kit to their home to continue nurturing the mini garden and turn it into a healthy and well-grown plant. The children are also provided with environmental empowerment education through the fairy tale “Tiwi and Kunci Kulina”. The Jagabumi team conveyed the story, accompanied by seven female leaders of Pullman & ibis Styles Bandung Grand Central called “Green Queen”.

Later, the event ended with giving school equipment souvenirs for fostered children and breaking the fast with all Pullman & ibis Styles Bandung Grand Central employees. PLANET 21 Days is celebrated annually every 21 April, one day before Earth Day, which falls on 22 April. Accor’s PLANET 21 program has 4 focus pillars: People, Guest, Partner, and Community. In 2022, PLANET 21 will still focus on its commitments to reduce plastic use. We at Pullman & ibis Styles Bandung Grand Central are committed to the campaign by replacing our bathroom amenities with bottles, providing clean cutleries wrapped in paper, using cassava bags for take-away and providing glass bottles and water dispensers for meeting guests.
