Sustainable Spring: North America Turns ‘Green’

Have you ever wondered what more than 1,300 hospitality partners would look like if you placed them all on one map of North America? Well, we did, and this is what we got…

Update as of March 20, 2012:
Clean the World partners with 1,342 hospitality properties, which represent 291,689 hotel rooms. Corporate partners include Starwood Hotels and Resorts, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, Caesars Entertainment, The Walt Disney World Resorts, Joie de Vivre Hotels, and many more. And we welcome your participation in our hospitality partnership program that recycles soap and saves lives.

Clean the World is proud to have hospitality partnerships in all 50 United States, 10 Canadian provinces, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The darker concentrations of colors represent a greater density of hospitality partners in one city or region. As you can see, while we have considerable coverage on the map, there is still lots of room for growth.

The hospitality partners served by Clean the World represent roughly 6% of the total North American marketplace for the hospitality industry. Since we’re optimists at Clean the World, we see this as a 94% opportunity to grow our social enterprise and truly transform the way the hospitality industry thinks about amenities recycling, sustainability, and socially responsible customer service. And we’re saving lives in the process.

So, who wants to help us turn the entire North American hospitality industry green? From large corporate flags and hotel brands to small, independent bed-and-breakfasts throughout North America, we are on a mission to collect, recycle, and distribute hotel guest room amenities to help stop the spread of preventable diseases. With your continued help and support, we’re well on our way toward achieving a global hygiene revolution. Click here to join our program today.

Soon we’ll have partners in Central America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Oceania. Wherever the spread of preventable diseases may be stopped by promoting and providing bar soap and proper hygiene, we will be there. Because soap saves lives.

Thanks for helping Clean the World.


Clean Hands, Clean World Campaign Launches

PeopleTowels® and Clean the World®, announce the launch of their partnership program, Clean Hands, Clean World. 

With a mission to halt the spread of preventable infectious diseases in a sustainable manner, the program distributes recycled soap and reusable hand towels to impoverished communities, saving lives while reducing waste and conserving natural resources.

To date, PeopleTowels has contributed more than 12,000 hand towels to create Sustainable Hygiene Kits, which have been distributed by Clean the World to communities in Haiti, Honduras, the Dominican Republic and the United States.

The Clean Hands, Clean World partnership cements the relationship between the two organizations, establishing a mutual goal of distributing 100,000 sustainable hygiene kits and launching PeopleTowels’ ‘One for One’ donation program on limited edition, Clean Hands, Clean World PeopleTowels.  Under this new program, PeopleTowels will donate one reusable hand towel for every limited edition PeopleTowel sold, to be distributed in a Sustainable Hygiene Kit.

“PeopleTowels is a valuable partner to Clean the World,” says Shawn Seipler, CEO and co-founder at Clean the World. “We share a common passion for sustainability and a desire to improve hygiene conditions for children and families around the world. The inclusion of PeopleTowels in sustainable hygiene kits that already include Clean the World recycled soaps helps create a comprehensive hygiene solution for a cleaner, healthier world.”

“Our partnership with Clean the World aligns perfectly with PeopleTowels’ mission to reduce waste,” says Mary Wallace, co-founder of PeopleTowels.  “By using recycled soaps and reusable hand towels, together we incorporate a sustainability element in this humanitarian effort that reinforces the message that even when meeting basic human needs, we need to do so with minimal impact on the environment.”

Every day in North America, hotels discard millions of pounds of soap, which can leach out of landfills to contaminate fragile groundwater systems. On average, people use more than 3,000 paper towels outside the home every year, wasting trees, water and energy for a product that is used for a few seconds then thrown away. By pairing recycled soap with reusable hand towels, millions of pounds of waste will be diverted from landfills while providing those in need with the means to practice life saving hand hygiene.             
 To kick off the program, “Clean Hands Clean World” is hosting a Celebrity Spokesperson Poll, soliciting input from the public about which celebrity would make the best Clean Hands, Clean World spokesperson.
All participants will be entered to win an Eco Lifestyle Prize package valued at over $400, including goods from leading eco-lifestyle brands.
