2018 Hilton All Suites Conference: Largest Hygiene Kit Build in History

January 11, 2018, marked the largest hygiene kit build in a single location in Clean the World history! Over 2,200 Hilton All Suites representatives from all over the country filled the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center to assemble 50,000 hygiene kits for those in need in the Greater New Orleans-area.  

Clean the World Founder and CEO Shawn Seipler’s keynote speech highlighted the great work of all the Hilton All Suites properties in helping to further Clean the World’s mission to recycle soap and save lives. Combined with Hilton Corporate, the Hilton All Suites brand has contributed to the diversion of over two million pounds of waste from landfills, resulting in the distribution of six million bars of soap to children and families in need globally. In anticipation of the hygiene kit activity to come, Seipler’s speech brought to light the hygiene education-centered programs that Clean the World Foundation has been able to implement and even expand since the initiation of this incredible partnership in October 2016.  

Once the keynote ended and it was time to assemble the kits, energy and excitement overflowed from the convention center. In under an hour, all 50,000 Clean the World Hygiene Kits were assembled and the build was complete. The energy was incredible!  

“Today our entire Embassy Suites Hotels, Home2 Suites, and Homewood Suites families came together and created the largest hygiene kit making event in history. Such a wonderful way to give back. Thank you for finding a way to save lives, Clean the World, with our soap,” said a representative of Homewood Suites by Hilton Bozeman.  

Completed hygiene kits were delivered to local recipient charities: Travelers Aid Society of Greater New Orleans, Salvation Army, New Orleans Women’s Shelter, New Orleans Mission and Second Harvest Food Bank. 

The Hilton All Suites Conference was a truly meaningful way to kick off 2018. A record-breaking hygiene kit build is just the beginning of an exceptional year ahead with Hilton and Clean the World’s impactful partnership.
