The Renaissance Raleigh North Hills Hotel, a Concord Hospitality property, has been “officially” identified as our 1,000th hospitality partner.
“With the rapid and welcome expansion of Clean the World throughout the hospitality industry, we are honored to be the 1,000th hotel partner to join the global hygiene revolution,” says Mark Laport, president and CEO of Concord Hospitality Enterprises Company. “The Renaissance Raleigh North Hills Hotel is a remarkable property and will proudly represent the sustainability initiatives promoted by all Concord Hotels as we do our part to help stop the spread of preventable diseases by recycling our soaps and bottled amenities. We’re proud of our continuing efforts to help others, and happy to work with Clean the World.”
The Renaissance is a gorgeous hotel in North Carolina, and a fitting property to mark a major achievement in our efforts to expand Clean the World’s hygiene revolution from hotels in North America to children and families around the world.
Clean the World now has partnerships with nearly 1,030 hospitality partners in North America, which includes hotels, bed-and-breakfasts, and cruise lines.
“It’s humbling to think that just two years ago we started this organization by experimenting with recycling soaps in my kitchen, and now it has grown to surpass 1,000 hotel properties in the United States and Canada,” says Shawn Seipler, executive director of Clean the World. “We wanted to pause for a moment and recognize the property that took us to 1,000, The Renaissance Raleigh North Hills Hotel. We know that with the continued support of this industry we will surely surpass 2,000, 3,000 and eventually 5,000 hotels on our way toward making Clean the World the industry standard for hotel amenities recycling.”
“Bienvenidos a La Isla del Encanto.” Puerto Rico is helping Clean the World.
The St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort, located at the foot of the lush El Yunque National Rainforest, has partnered with Clean the World to help provide soaps and bottled amenities for needy children and families throughout the Caribbean region. The agreement represents a personal milestone for Clean the World, and an important step in our global expansion.
“There are strong ties to Puerto Rico for many of our Clean the World team members, myself included,” says Shawn Seipler, executive director of Clean the World. “Puerto Rico is a beautiful travel destination with many hotels and resorts that would be ideal partners for soap and guest room amenities recycling. The St. Regis Bahia Beach offers an ideal location for us to begin a broader push for partners throughout the island, and it with mucho orgulloso (much pride) that we welcome the first Puerto Rico-based partner to our Clean the World family.”
