Gloves and trash bags will be provided, but volunteers are encouraged to bring their own reusable gloves to reduce waste.

One of their guiding principles at Mandarin Oriental is ‘Acting with responsibility’, which they strive to achieve through their “Naturally Better” program.

– Additional tasks as needed

Commitment Expected: arrive at your scheduled start time and check-in with Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group staff. Please bring a refillable water bottle, closed-toed shoes, and protection from the sun (sunscreen, hats, sunglasses). If you have your own gloves, we recommend bringing them.
