Central Florida Earth Day on the horizon

CTWF is rapidly getting things together for the Central Florida Earth Day event, May 2nd at Lake Eola Park in downtown Orlando. The event, which is geared toward an eco-friendly lifestyle, will feature over 285 vendors who cater to organic, vegan or earth-friendly products or services. There will be several guest speakers discussing a variety of eco-friendly topics including sustainable government practices, a central florida food network, green homebuilding, health and wellness, water conservation and others.

Along with the many vendors and sponsors, Central Florida Earth Day will feature numerous musicians and other entertainers. Performers include bands The Forefathers, Stranger Than Fiction and Token Gamblers.

As an event tree sponsor, CTWF will have a booth at Earth Day where we’ll have our recycled soap on display, feature a bubble playtime for children, and raise funds for our recycling efforts by selling raffle tickets. Prizes include gift certificates to vegan dining at Ethos, a one night stay at Nickelodeon Family Suites, $25 dollars off at Hilton Garden Inn, spa gift basket and more.

Come out for the day on May 2nd and drop by our booth to meet the team and learn more about our soap recycling efforts throughout Central Florida. If you don’t have time to make it to the event, please make a donation online so we can continue providing soap to help save lives.

HSMAI Spring Fling a huge success

Last night we attended the HSMAI Spring Fling at Blue Martini. It was mentioned that this event was their first after hours social in years and they did not disappoint. I had never been to Blue Martini before and discovered it to be a beautiful bar attached to the Mall at Millenia. There I met with several past colleagues who work at companies such as Nickelodeon Family Suites, McCormick & Schmick’s, Universal Studios and others.

Needless to say we had a great time and the networking was fabulous. The drinks were pretty good too! Everyone I spoke to was really interested in our soap recycling efforts and our mission to save lives by promoting handwashing and distributing soap to those in need. I have a feeling we made a great impression on the attendees, many of whom we hope to become partners within the not-so-distant future.

The Orlando chapter of HSMAI, which stands for Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association International, is Central Florida’s leading professional association for sales and marketing professionals involved in tourism, travel, and hospitality. We’d like to thank them for hosting such a wonderful event and we look forward to the next one.
