Some of the biggest names in the hospitality industry, the private sector and philanthropic endeavors are attending the “First Annual Clean the World Gala” which will take place Saturday, November 5, 2011 at The Peabody Orlando. The event will include executives from The Walt Disney World Resorts, Caesars Entertainment, Marriott Vacation Club International, Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide, and many more.
Clean the World Foundation, a charitable organization that collects, recycles and distributes recycled hotel soaps and bottled amenities, is planning the celebration in November to draw attention to the power of soap as an aid to promoting hygiene health.
The luxury hotel, The Peabody Orlando, was one of Clean the World’s first of more than 1,000 hotel partners to join the successful soap and bottled amenities recycling program that has helped boost sustainability and environmentally focused “green” initiatives for hotels and bed-and-breakfast properties throughout North America.
Corporate sponsorship opportunities are available to help raise funds for Clean the World Foundation, which has collected, recycled and distributed more than 8 million soap bars to children and families in need in the United States and more than 40 countries, including Haiti, Japan, Zimbabwe, Uganda, India, Honduras, Mexico and Albania.
