Laura Schwartz, Clean the World, Asembia, Wynn Las Vegas Team Up for Lifesaving Recycling Program

As an active Clean the World board member, professional speaker Laura Schwartz was especially proud to emcee the Asembia 2016 Specialty Pharmacy Summit at the fabulous Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas. Wynn has been a Clean the World partner since 2011, with contributing properties in both Las Vegas and Macau.

There were 12,000 Asembia “heads in beds” throughout the conference, resulting in:

  • 2,364 pounds of discarded soap recycled from rooms
  • With the addition of plastic amenity bottles, the program diverted a total of 4,140 pounds of waste from southern Nevada landfills
  • Clean the World will manufacture 12,624 new bars of recycled soap that will benefit at-risk people

“I was so excited to emcee such a prestigious summit for Asembia at the Wynn, which is not only a fabulous venue but a socially responsible one,” Laura said. “You could really see their pride for the partnership as well as their company.”

The top two killers of children worldwide are pneumonia and diarrheal disease. Introducing young children to soap and information about how and when to use it helps exponentially in cognitive development. Clean the World combats this issue with a variety of programs, including cooperative agreements such as this one with Asembia and Wynn.

Laura’s meeting with the Wynn Housekeeping staff during their training was in celebration of this remarkable achievement, as well as many others.

“I was so happy to represent Clean the World while visiting the Wynn Las Vegas housekeeping managers and staff training,” she said. “It was a great way to celebrate the Asembia Specialty Pharmacy Summit.”
