This week on the blog ofHotel 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.
