AH&LA Partners with Clean the World
The American Hotel & Lodging Association (AH&LA) has joined forces with Clean the World Foundation, Inc., a non-profit organization that collects and recycles used soap and bottled amenities from hotels, to offer AH&LA members an exclusive additional five percent discount per room. READER COMMENTS
More than 1,700 hotels across North America currently participate in the program. Since 2009, Clean the World has distributed more than 12 million bars of soap to homeless shelters and in countries suffering from high death rates due to acute respiratory infection and diarrheal disease, the top killers of children under the age of five.
Properties that participate in the initiative receive a quarterly impact statement detailing the total weight of the amenities shipped and an Interactive Impact Calculator that calculates the lifesaving impact of their donations. Hotels also are given bilingual training posters (English and Spanish) and access to an online training video for housekeeping staff. Information cards are available for guestrooms, as well as plaques that can be displayed in the lobby educating guests on the program. Additionally, hotels can organize soap drives for their communities, in addition to other volunteer opportunities.
“Clean the World’s innovative combination of green sustainability and humanitarian efforts already has attracted support from many hotel chains and resorts,” said AH&LA President/CEO Joe McInerney, CHA. “We are pleased to be able to offer our members an additional discount to participate in such a worthy program.”
“The North American hospitality industry puts more than 300 tons of soap and plastic bottles in local landfills every day,” said Clean the World CEO/Co-founder Shawn Seipler. “With this partnership, we are eager to increase the industry’s awareness of our socially-responsible recycling programs and engage more hotel companies and individual properties in our efforts to both prevent needless waste and provide essential hygiene items, as well as stem the tide of deaths due to lack of proper hygiene.”

Dear Clean World,
I am happy about your initiative to collect used soap and amenities from hotel. I would like to know more about how this works to prevent the spread of germs etc. And how do hotel participate in this sustainable initiative especially in Africa where there are a lot of homeless shelters.
