Any way you slice it, a million of anything is a lot.
When you are dead-set against doing something, you say you wouldn’t do it in a million years. A recording artist receives a platinum record for selling a million copies of an album. And who wouldn’t want to want to win a million dollars?
But think about a million bars of soap. Just imagine how many hygiene-related illnesses can be prevented when a million bars of soap are sent out into the world. That’s how many recycled bars we have created with the used soap donated by Starwood Hotels and Resorts.
When Starwood signed on with Clean the World in April of 2011, it was the first corporate partner to join the Global Hygiene Revolution. Now with 168 properties participating in the program, Starwood is the first partner to reach the milestone of one million recycled bars.
We are grateful to the thousands of housekeeping associates collecting soap and bottled amenities every day at Starwood properties. At this rate, it won’t be long before we create a million more recycled bars from Starwood soap.
