Sysco Guest Supply Comes Through Again

Thanks to our friends at Sysco Guest Supply in New Jersey for completing another impressive production run on behalf of Clean the World.

David J. Baron, soap operations supervisor at Guest Packaging, LLC, confirmed that his team processed nearly 88,000 soap bars (3 oz. apiece), which filled 14 pallets. The soaps produced by Sysco Guest Supply will be distributed by Children International, one of Clean the World’s prominent global distribution partners, to help stop the spread of preventable diseases in the United States, Canada and more than 45 countries.

Since Clean the World’s founding in 2009, Sysco Guest Supply has donated more than 50,000 lbs. of soap, bottled amenities, cleaning products, tissue paper and paper towels to Clean the World’s soap recycling efforts.

10,000 Soap Bars to Ethiopia

Clean the World’s Las Vegas Recycling Operations Center (ROC) has been busy preparing for its Feb. 29 grand opening event, but there is a lot of other good work being done there as well.

Recently, the Las Vegas facility set aside 10,000 soap bars for an essential overseas distribution.

Jewish Voice Ministries International, an evangelical ministry based in Phoenix, Ariz., will receive the soaps and distribute them to children and families in Ethiopian villages where soap is scarce, and diseases are common.

Melissa Johnston, international logistics manager at JVMI, says volunteers will distribute the soaps during two, separate five-day medical outreach trips to Ethiopia’s capital city, Addis Ababa, and the village of Woliso.

“The trips are scheduled in late February and early March, and we hope to bring awareness to the importance of personal hygiene, including hand washing with soap,” Johnston says. “We’ll distribute from two medical clinics in those regions and hope to provide information about and access to soap so lives may be improved there.”

Johnston says her first experience with Clean the World has been a good one, as she expressed in a note to Rosanna Kingston, who coordinates the organization’s non-profit partnerships.

“Thank you for putting together the donation so quickly,” Johnston writes. “You and your team provided excellent service and advice. The donation request process was smooth because of your assistance. We know that this soap will go a long way to help the people of Ethiopia.”

If you know of an organization that would like to arrange for soap distributions either domestically or overseas, please contact Rosanna Kingston at rkingston@ctw2.wpstagecoach.com.


10 Million Soap Bars and Counting

Clean the World’s “hometown newspaper” – The Orlando Sentinel – recently published a terrific piece about our organization’s origin and growth in three years of operation.

The article by reporter Kate Santich has been syndicated to multiple media markets throughout North America and has gained quite a bit of attention for Clean the World and our mission to save lives with soap. By placing Orlando at the center of our global hygiene revolution, readers of this original article, and those who come across it in other media outlets, can confidently target Central Florida as a vital and developing hotspot for sustainable business in one of the world’s best known hospitality and tourism locations.

As always we wish to thank our valued hospitality partners, some of whom are mentioned in the article, for their investment in our hospitality partnership program and support of our global hygiene revolution.

We could not reach so far, so fast without the encouragement and involvement of people who truly believe in sustainability and socially responsible programs in the hospitality industry. As Clean the World grows, you will grow right along with us. Together we will achieve great things. We already have.
