First Annual Clean the World Gala to Celebrate Soap Recycling Success in the Hospitality Industry and Promote Hygiene Education Worldwide

Orlando, FL (PRWEB) May 18, 2011

Clean the World Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization that collects, recycles and distributes recycled hotel soaps and bottled amenities, is planning a celebration in November to draw attention to the power of soap as an aid to promoting hygiene health.

Some of the biggest names in the hospitality industry, the private sector and philanthropic endeavors are attending, including executives from The Walt Disney World Resorts, Caesars Entertainment, Marriott Vacation Club International, Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide, and many more.

The First Annual Clean the World Gala will take place Saturday, November 5 at The Peabody Orlando. The luxury hotel 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. More information about sponsorships and details about the Gala may be found at this link.

The Gala, which is expected to attract approximately 1,200 attendees, will feature cultural dance troupes from several countries and continents that have received soaps from Clean the World, including Africa, Albania, Colombia, Haiti and the United States.

“This is a celebration of the people who are at the leading edge of our global hygiene revolution, and the cultures that benefit most from the generosity of our hospitality industry partners, supporters and friends,” says Shawn Seipler, co-founder and executive director at Clean the World. “Our efforts to promote proper hygiene education to stop the spread of preventable diseases would not be possible without the support and the utmost respect for the cultures and communities we serve around the globe.”

Fundraising for the Clean the World Foundation is essential to help broaden the reach of the soap recycling efforts worldwide and get soaps and hygiene-related products in the hands of the people who need them most. Medical research studies have shown that simple hand washing with soap can help prevent hygiene related deaths by more than 60 percent, yet there are communities around the world in which soap is such a valuable commodity that hygiene is considered a luxury, not a necessity.

Each day, 9,000 children around the world die from diseases such as acute respiratory illness and diarrheal diseases that can be prevented by washing with bar soap. These are the top two killers of children under the age of 5. Clean the World Foundation has a mission to provide soap where needed to help improve hygiene and sanitation conditions, to lessen the impact of disease, and to promote better hygiene and living conditions worldwide.

And there is an environmentally friendly mission as well. Clean the World has partnered with more than 1,000 hotel properties in North America to provide soaps and bottled amenities to people in need. While doing so, the organization has also fulfilled a valuable environmental mission by diverting an estimated 550 tons of hotel waste from polluting landfills in the United States and Canada.

“This is such a tremendous organization that should be on the short list for business partners and philanthropists everywhere,” says Gregg Herning, vice president of sales and marketing at Peabody Hotels and event chair of the First Annual Clean the World Gala. “We’re doing our part to bring attention to their good works, but we know the real benefits will be realized by the improved health of people who receive these soaps and go on to lead healthier, happier lives.”

Clean the World Foundation Inc. is the 501 (c) (3) charitable arm of Clean the World.

Worldwide Leading Tarps Supplier Plans Large Tarps Donation across The U.S.

Palmdale, CA (PRWEB) May 20, 2010

2010 has turned out to be a year of many natural disasters. Emergency supplies and tarps are always an essential item during these occasions. The compound of a sagging economy and this year’s extreme weather has challenged many home owners as well as the homeless. 2010 has seen it’s share of earthquakes, floods and tornados, wreaking havoc on the people of those regions. Towns like Norman, Oklahoma and counties like Cook County in Illinois were also heavily hit with storms this year. Storms, tornados and hurricanes rip the roofs off house and in many cases totally destroy the house. Due to the poor economy, many people could not afford the type insurance they needed to protect their home, which has left many people homeless.

A leading tarp distributor, Tarps Plus is planning an annual “tarps give-way” to many of these stricken areas across the country as well as areas with high homeless rates. Tarps Plus currently gives tarps away annually to the homeless in Los Angeles where the company is based but now seeks to spread out the annual give-away to several other locations that are stricken with extreme weather and higher homeless rates. The homeless are the most venerable to cold climates and harsh weather conditions. In cities like New Orleans where the homeless rate has jumped to one in twenty five people, nearly five years after Hurricane Katrina, the challenges are abundant. In cities like Chicago where record temperatures were recorded, homeless flow out into the streets due to full homeless shelters.

Michael Stein, the founder and CEO of Tarps Plus says, “a tarps might not be much but it will protect someone from rain and help to keep them warm.” The tarp giveaway will be called, “Tarps Plus Love” and will take place during Thanksgiving.

Tarps Plus will be giving out over a thousand tarps in each city. The company is also seeking other companies with helpful products to join them in this effort.

Tarps Plus Love Information:

Date: November 23rd 2010

Locations: Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Orlando Fl., New Orleans, Austin TX.
