Disney VoluntEARS give generously

Clean the World received a $2,500 donation in May from Disney VoluntEARS in recognition of the volunteer services performed by three people who have regularly helped recycle soap at Clean the World’s recycling operations center in Orlando.

Disney cast members Ashley Newcomb, Trent Leonard and Brooke Samlaska were recipients of “EARS to You” grants from Disney. Each chose Clean the World Foundation as its organization of choice to support with the grant money. The contribution is based on the amount of volunteer hours performed on behalf of that organization. Trent and Brooke donated $1,000 apiece; Ashley contributed $500.
This is a wonderful gift from our Disney VoluntEARS and we are all appreciative of their generosity. The money will be used to help advance our global hygiene revolution. Thanks for helping Clean the World.

Renaissance Era: 1,000 Hospitality Partners and Counting…

Clean the World recently passed a major milestone in its growth within the hospitality industry. During a flurry of activity in May, Clean the World topped the 1,000 mark for hospitality partners throughout North America.

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.”


Clean the World signs first hotel partner in Puerto Rico

“Bienvenidos a La Isla del Encanto.” Puerto Rico is helping Clean the World.

Rich in history and heritage, and long an attractive target of Clean the World, Puerto Rico is now on our hotel partnership map.

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.”
