Del Mar, Calif.- L'Auberge Del Mar is turning off the lights in support of World Wildlife Fund’s (WWF) Earth Hour from 8:30 to 9:30 on March 31, 2012. Hotel guests will be provided with “green” flashlights and asked to turn off guestroom lights for the hour. In the Lobby Lounge, lights will be dimmed and patrons can enjoy specially priced earth-friendly, organic wines by the glass. “Earth Hour is a simple way to do a bit of good for our environment, and guests can have a little fun with it along the way," said Director of Sales & Marketing Francine Williams.

World Wildlife Fund’s Earth Hour is a worldwide campaign to raise awareness of sustainability issues. In a collective display of commitment to a better future for the planet, people around the world are being asked to turn off lights for an hour at 8:30 p.m. on March 31, 2012. Through Earth Hour, WWF hopes to draw attention to important environmental causes including the disappearance of natural habitats and biodiversity, pollution and climate change. Although the company has set operational benchmarks for various eco-friendly measures, the cornerstone of the program is property-based Green Teams who implement these practices and also create customized initiatives that work well in their particular operating environments and communities. A sampling of the eco-friendly practices at L’Auberge Del Mar includes energy efficient lighting, earth friendly kitchen equipment, recycled kitchen flooring, biodegradable “to go” boxes and donation of used oil for Biodiesel fuel conversion. The property also participates in the Clean the World program which sterilizes and recycles soap and shampoo and sends it to underprivileged countries.
