A bountiful harvest in Calif. wine country

Guests may come to Sonoma County for the wine, but the greater value may be found in the soaps and shampoos they leave behind.

Best Western Wine Country Inn & Suites, with 85 hotel rooms and suites in the heart of Sonoma wine country, has partnered with Clean the World.

“With so many visitors coming to enjoy the wines in our area, we know we have a steady flow of guests with a deep appreciation for the environment,” says Todd Anderson, general manager of Best Western Wine Country Inn & Suites, a member of the Heritage Hotel Group. “By partnering with Clean the World we know that the soaps and bottled amenities enjoyed by our guests will be recycled to help others in need. That’s not only good for the people receiving the soaps, but it’s great to know that we can do our part to improve the living conditions for people a world away.”

Going ‘green’ in the Bluegrass State

Kentucky now has a representative hotel partner in the Clean the World recycling program, and the leadership at Hampton Inn Owensboro couldn’t be happier.

Hampton Inn Owensboro, owned by The Malcolm Bryant Corporation, helped take a leap forward with its environmental sustainability initiatives by becoming Clean the World’s first hotel partner in Kentucky. The soaps collected in the 86 rooms and suites at the Hampton Inn Owensboro will be shipped to Clean the World’s headquarters in Orlando for recycling and distribution in the United States and more than 40 countries.

“Our property is proud to be the first hospitality partner for Clean the World in the state of Kentucky,” says Meagan Magnus, general manager of Hampton Inn Owensboro. “We are confident that our participation in their hospitality partnership program will inspire other Kentucky properties to join as well to help use our resources and help turn trash into treasure to help save lives.”

And Kentucky is an attractive location that has been a target of Clean the World for some time.

“Just as it is a hotbed for thoroughbred horse racing and NCAA basketball champions, Kentucky can also become a leader in advancing our global hygiene revolution,” says Shawn Seipler, executive director at Clean the world. “Soap saves lives and guests at Hampton Inn Owensboro can be part of the solution to help stop the spread of preventable diseases simply by washing with bar soap.”
