X-mas tree made out of discarded CDs
Le Méridien, New Delhi reaffirmed its commitment to creating a balance between economy and ecology by putting up a unique Christmas tree made of waste materials.
The 25-feet tall Christmas tree has been expertly made out of discarded CDs which have been collected from the several departments of the hotel and also contributions from conscientious guests who care about the environment. Fashioned out of about 3000 CDs, this special tree is a strong symbol of the hotel’s motto of managing e-waste and also adhering to the principle of ‘Reuse, Reduce and Recycle.’ Together with the joys of ushering in the Christmas spirit with the lighting of the Christmas tree, guests were taken on a fascinating adventure into the world of chocolates with Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, inspired by the 1971 American classic musical fantasy film. Master Chefs engaged children with chocolate making and chocolate decorations at the Chocolate Factory.
Children were also given an opportunity to put down their wish list on specially designed post cards which they could write to Santa Claus and drop in a red coloured post box made especially for this purpose. All letters will be sent to the Santa Claus’ village in Rovaniemi, Lapland in Finland. With mulled wine, special Christmas cake, a unique tree and Willy Wonka’s chocolate adventures, Le Meridien New Delhi kick starts the Christmas festivities with elan.
