Fancy a meaningful family staycation? Then head to Rosewood Hong Kong for their “Staycation for Good,” a purposeful programme that aims to tackle social and environmental issues.
The first Staycation for Good – which bookings are now open for – will cover food waste and will take place in late August. Rosewood is partnering with Social Venture Hong Kong, Food Angel and Produce Green Foundation to teach families about ethical food production and food waste reduction through an interactive and fun farm-to-table journey.
The package includes an interactive tour by Food Angel on food waste, where families will learn how to upcycle food waste through games and workshops, as well as a half-day excursion with Produce Green Foundation where families will take part in rice planting and learn about regenerative agriculture and composting.
Guests will also be treated to a workshop hosted by Matchali, a local matcha brand, on its zero-waste initiative from packaging to composting. Following the workshop, guests will be able to create their own matcha drinks.
Food waste in Hong Kong is a massive issue. In 2018, levels of food waste hit the highest level since records began in 1991, with Hongkongers sending 1.53kgs of trash per person to landfills every day. In the same year, it was found that 31% of municipal solid waste in Hong Kong was food waste.
The Rosewood Staycation for Good will take place quarterly and the next programme will return over the Christmas period – which will revolve around empowering underprivileged families.
Be one of the first to experience the Staycation for Good at Rosewood Hong Kong. The first edition takes place from 23-25 August 2021 at a starting rate of HK$5,300, which includes a HK$500 donation to Social Ventures Hong Kong.
