Clean the World is working with UPS to ensure that all deliveries of soaps and bottled amenities from Clean the World will be recognized as “carbon neutral” and eligible to earn carbon offset credits to help protect our planet.
UPS offers carbon neutral shipping to Clean the World and its participating hospitality partners. As part of this innovative program, all collection bins and packages shipped via UPS will be specially marked with the UPS carbon neutral shipment logo. The special logo is a symbol of Clean the World’s commitment to reduce the carbon dioxide (CO2) impact from shipping, and the desire of our more than 1,200 hospitality partners throughout North America to promote sustainability and social responsibility.
UPS purchases certified carbon (CO2) offsets to help balance out the emissions produced by the transportation of shipments, including soaps and bottled amenities, as they are distributed around the world. UPS has supported projects that include reforestation, landfill gas destruction, wastewater treatment, and methane destruction.
“Consistent with our commitment to sustainability and protecting our planet, carbon neutral shipping through UPS is an exciting, new and valuable component to our hospitality partnership program,” says Shawn Seipler, CEO at Clean the World. “We’re happy to take part in a socially responsibly shipping solution, and we encourage our hotel partners to do the same so we can save lives with soap while creating a cleaner world.”
Clean the World receives and ships large volumes of soaps and bottled amenities each day, so this carbon neutral program with UPS should be an excellent fit. Since February 2009 Clean the World has distributed more than 9 million bars of soap and more than 500,000 lbs. of bottled amenities in the United States, Canada and more than 45 countries.
