Wyndham launches green initiative for kids
Children staying at Wyndham Vacation Resorts Asia Pacific resorts during the school holidays will be given a lesson in being green thanks to a fun new initiative involving adventure loving Wynnie the Wallaby.
Wyndham Green’s kids’ initiative “Wynnie the Wallaby’s Green Adventure” has begun across Wyndham resorts in Australia, New Zealand and Fiji, providing children with a fun and informative lesson in reducing their carbon footprint.
Children staying at a Wyndham resort are given an activity booklet which includes games and a quiz which can be answered by following signs around the resort. Once the kids have completed the booklet they receive a gift bag and a certificate of completion.
Wynnie the Wallaby has been introduced to educate children and their parents about how they can be environmentally friendly both at the resort and at home including lessons in reducing, reusing and recycling.
Wyndham Vacation Resorts Asia Pacific CEO and Managing Director, Barry Robinson said the aim of the green initiative was to educate guests as well as resort staff about preserving the environment.
“Wyndham is committed to reducing carbon emissions and we want everyone who stays at our properties to learn how to do the same and be more conscious of their impact on the environment,” said Barry.
Wyndham Vacation Resorts Asia Pacific, a member of Wyndham Worldwide Corporation’s (NYSE: WYN) family of companies develops, markets and sells vacation ownership interests in the Asia Pacific and acquires, franchises and manages hotels and resorts for Wyndham Hotel Group, one of the world’s largest hospitality companies.
