That’s a Lot of Showgirls

With the opening of the Las Vegas Recycling Operations Center, Clean the World can serve all hospitality partners in the Western and Pacific regions – an area spanning 13 states, including Alaska and Hawaii, all lodging properties in the city of Laguna Beach, Calif. and all of the Disneyland Hotels and Resorts in Anaheim, Calif.

In fact, Disneyland Resorts have collected and shipped 8,735 lbs. – more than 4.3 tons — of amenities directly to this facility.

Soaps and bottled amenities come to the Las Vegas facility from as far away as the Westmark Fairbanks Hotel and Conference Center in Fairbanks, Alaska (3,300 miles away) and the Sheraton Kauai Resort in Koloa, Hawaii (3,200 miles away).

Our hospitality partners in the Western and Pacific region have already contributed 325,000 lbs. of soap and 255,000 lbs. of bottled amenities to help Clean the World.

That’s 1.74 million bars of soap and 2.72 million little bottles of shampoo and lotion that are now improving hygiene conditions for children and families worldwide.

And if you need a little perspective on just how much soap has been collected, consider this…
Those soap weights are equivalent to:

– 27 African elephants
– 40 Killer whales
– 116 Volkswagen Beetles
– 2,917 Las Vegas showgirls!

And it’s all being collected and shipped to Las Vegas for recycling to help save lives around the globe. That’s how important this Las Vegas recycling operations center is to our Clean the World mission.

The ripple effect of this Las Vegas operation is immense. The good that comes from the amenities collected and recycled here will bring far-ranging, positive health benefits for communities in our own backyard and in regions around the globe.
