22nd April – International Earth Day

22Apr

This week on the blog of Hotel Florida Spa, your hotel in Fuengirola, we would like to commemorate International Earth Day.

To find a balance between economic, social and environmental needs of present and future generations, is necessary to promote affection towards nature and planet Earth.

It is important to remember that our planet and its ecosystems provide life and sustenance. Today, as it is International Earth Day, we accept the collective responsibility we have of promoting affection towards nature and planet Earth, as it was stated on the Rio Declaration of 1992.

Earth Day also helps raising awareness among humans regarding the problems that affect our planet and the different ways of life that we lead.

Happy International Earth Day!
