Hotel Industry unites for the cause of water conservation

first_imgHotel and Restaurant Association of Western India (HRAWI), the apex body of hotels and restaurants in the western region including the states of Maharashtra, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Goa and the Union Territories of Daman, Diu & Silvassa has issued guidelines to its members on conservation and use of water.In a letter addressed to its members, Bharat Malkani, the President of HRAWI has urged member hoteliers to conserve the precious resource by taking small steps like serving water and refilling only upon guests’ request to not using the water hose to sweep the paths or driveways but by using a just dry broom.Some of the key water saving practices that the association has urged its members to follow include serving half a glass of water when requested for some, reusing untouched water, crockery and cutlery, requesting the guest to use less water to avoid wastage and informing them about the drought, requesting the guest to turn off the taps when not in use or lowering the flow of the water, using a cover on the pool while not in use to reduce evaporation, among others.“Water is a very precious resource and conserving it has become the need of the hour. Every drop of water saved could make a difference and especially so when all the hoteliers and restaurateurs join hands it could mean a significant one. Using less water helps us to become more flexible during times of water shortage, and conserving water is simple and inexpensive,” said Bharat Malkani, President, HRAWI.last_img read more

What an MLB source said about the Dbacks trade h

first_img What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke Comments Share Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right away “I hope,” Kolb said about being with the Cardinals. “Arizona would be a great place. I’ve obviously envisioned myself there.”It’s no surprise that Kolb has thought about what it would be to wear the No. 4 in Cardinal red, but hearing him admit that Arizona would be a ‘great place’ to live is music to some fans ears (although it’s probably poison to those fans who think the young quarterback will be a bust).Kolb won’t have much say in where the Eagles trade him. What he will have control over is if he re-signs with his new club at the end of the 2011 season. If the Cardinals really want the four-year veteran as their starter, his willingness to sign a contract extension will be just as important, if not more so, than what Philadelphia is asking for in exchange for him.After Kolb’s comments, a contract extension doesn’t seem like it would be an issue. That is unless when he envisioned himself in the Valley it was during the 100 degree summers rather than the 70 degree winters. That might change things a bit.center_img Top Stories D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ It feels like we’ve heard from everyone about the Kevin Kolb to the Arizona Cardinals rumors over the last four months. While it’s nice to know what NFL analysts think and hear the coach speak from Ken Whisenhunt and Andy Reid in regards to the quarterback position, it’s even better to get it straight from the horse’s signal caller’s mouth.As a guest on the nationally syndicated Dan Patrick Show, Kevin Kolb revealed that it’s not just the Cards who are interested in seeing him in the desert, he’s actually thought about the possibility a lot himself.last_img read more
