Marriott International has been an enthusiastic supporter of Clean the World since 2009. Their commitment continued to grow this year when Marriott’s Jeff Wolff joined us on a soap distribution trip to the Dominican Republic. Jeff is vice president of guest experience and rooms operations – Americas.
Now Clean the World is mentioned in Marriott’s just-released 2013 Sustainability Report Update, which updates the company’s 2011-2012 Sustainability Report. Here is an excerpt from the “Environment” portion of the report:
In 2012, Marriott became an official hotel partner of Clean the World, a nonprofit that collects, recycles and distributes partially used soaps and other hygiene amenities globally to communities in need. With nearly 47,000 rooms already participating, Marriott is the number one hotel chain in the Clean the World portfolio, having collected more than 75,000 pounds of soap and 50,000 pounds of amenities.
