Wyndham has released Wynnie the Wallaby’s third adventure, an activity book for kids.
Wyndham Vacation Resorts Asia Pacific has launched its third installment of Wynnie the Wallaby’s Green Adventure activity book series designed to teach children about a number of different environmental issues from recycling to measuring electricity consumption.
The activity book has been distributed to young guests staying at a number of Wyndham Vacation Resorts Asia Pacific resorts across Australia, New Zealand and Fiji over the school holidays.
“At Wyndham we are very conscious of the impact we have on the environment and strive to encourage our staff and resort guests to take steps towards reducing their carbon footprint both at our resorts, and at home,” said Wyndham Vacation Resorts’ President and Managing Director of Asia Pacific, Barry Robinson.
The latest issue sees Wynnie and friends, Kiri the Kiwi and Tiko the Turtle, travel to new destinations across the South Pacific, meeting new animal friends and championing environmental initiatives.
Wynnie the Wallaby’s Green Adventure was first launched by the Wyndham Vacation Resorts Asia Pacific group in early 2011, and has been expanded in conjunction with the company’s Wyndham Green initiative.
The aim of the initiative is not only to educate children about the importance of reducing our carbon footprint, but also to spread the message to parents about the resorts’ various green initiatives.
The Wyndham Green mascot Wynnie, made a special appearance at some of the resorts over the school holidays including the grand opening of a recycling station at Wyndham Vacation Resorts Flynns Beach in Port Macquarie. Children were able to take part in activities such as tree planting and making sculptures out of recycled goods.
Wynnie was also spotted at Wyndham Vacation Resorts Coffs Harbour, meeting guests and handing out activity booklets. Children staying at the resort took part in a treasure hunt searching for clues around the resort’s green initiatives including the worm farm, green house, solar panels and LED lighting.
On the Gold Coast, young guests staying at Wyndham Vacation Resorts Kirra Beach were able to learn planet-saving tips as they played the resort’s nine-hole putt-putt golf course and Wynnie visited Wyndham Surfers Paradise to meet with guests.
The activity book also introduces kids to the concept of energy saving LED lights, which they could see for themselves at Wyndham Surfers Paradise, where an LED lighting program is currently being trialled.
