Ritz-Carlton celebrates sustainability at kids' holiday club

Using a microscope

This is nice to see: one of the world's biggest hotel chains, Ritz-Carlton, is injecting the subject of sustainability into its children's holiday activities in the Canaries.

The Ritz-Carlton Abama on Tenerife runs one of the largest kids’ clubs in Europe, Ritz Kids, and is keeping the little ones busy in partnership with explorer and environmentalist Jean-Michel Cousteau and his Ocean Futures Society.

Activities will show how actions that affect the environment can in turn impact all living things, from sea to land to sky, including changing bird migration patterns and how pollution on our coral reefs is causing problems for whales.

There are even special days celebrating and learning about tigers, elephant, orangutans and bees for children staying at the hotel (deluxe rooms from €350 per night, B&B), plus opportunities to get into astronomy, gardening, arts and crafts and theatre. Can grown-ups come?
