Shanghai, April 21, 2017 – In celebration of this year’s Earth Day on April 22, and as part of Disney’s Earth Month initiative, Shanghai Disney Resort is running a series of conservation-themed activities to promote environmental protection among its guests, Cast Members and in the local community. From today through May 1, guests visiting the resort can discover “Celebrate Earth” activities in both the resort’s theme park, Shanghai Disneyland, and its shopping, dining and entertainment area, Disneytown. Different fun and engaging environmental activities, under the six unique themes – “protect nature,” “reduce waste,” “use water responsibly,” “conserve fuel,” “conserve electricity,” and “use paper responsibility” – are designed for children and their parents to cultivate conservation awareness and actions.

As a highlight of this year’s Earth Month celebration at Shanghai Disney Resort, “Xiao Tui”, the magical recycle bin, made its premiere at Shanghai Disneyland to talk about conservation with guests and encourage everyone to take actions, including how they can make small changes in their lives to help protect the environment and also how to get connected with nature. Through “talking” about the environment and sharing tips with guests, the surprise appearance of Xiao Tui at the theme park’s Fantasyland attracted guests of all ages and is quickly becoming a new popular and educational entertainment experience at the resort. 
 
Every year in April, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts celebrates “Earth Month” by hosting special events and activities throughout the month to inspire and motivate guests, Cast, and community members to learn more about how each of us can help protect the planet we share together. From its early development stage, Shanghai Disney Resort has embraced this Disney tradition by hosting Earth Month celebrations with Cast and community members through Disney VoluntEARS events and many other Cast activities. This year’s Shanghai Disney Resort Earth Month is being celebrated for the first time together with guests in Shanghai.
