More accurately, the next time you stay at Sheraton Safari Hotel near Walt Disney World, your soaps and bottled amenities will be recycled by Clean the World.
In September, Sheraton Safari Hotel became the 100th Starwood Hotel and Resort property to partner with Clean the World Hospitality Partnership Program. Sheraton Safari Hotel, which sits at the edge of Walt Disney World property in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., is undergoing an extensive renovation, but that did not slow the growing enthusiasm among the property team for joining the soap recycling program.
“The entire staff is really excited,” says Randy Guidicelli, executive housekeeper at Sheraton Safari Hotel. “Our general manager, Mark Politte and our management company, Aimbridge Hospitality, are both very supportive of the Clean the World program.”
Starwood Hotels and Resorts announced a corporate partnership with Clean the World on April 22nd – Earth Day. The announcement gave corporate approval to the efforts of individual Starwood properties that had already been involved with the Clean the World amenities recycling program.
“We’ve been looking into joining the Clean the World program throughout the year and felt it is very valuable and something to which we could easily contribute,” Guidicelli says. “It’s been amazing to learn how many people receive recycled soap around the world from all of our properties.”
Sheraton Safari Hotel was recently notified in early September by the Starwood corporate office that the property was the 100th to join Clean the World.
“We received a call from Starwood Corporate and they congratulated our housekeeping team for joining the Clean the World program,” he says. “In only a few weeks, our property is filling the Clean the World recycling bins quickly. We expect to be a large contributor of soaps and bottled amenities to Clean the World, and our staff is motivated to make this a success.”
The staff at Sheraton Safari Hotel celebrated International Housekeepers Week with daily events of appreciation to honor the tremendous efforts of the housekeeping team. Each department at Sheraton Safari Hotel participated in the celebration, offering an ice cream social, pizza party, luncheon and a potluck celebration to end the week.
