TownePlace Suites Joplin Helps Clean the World

JOPLIN, Missouri (December 13,2013)- TownePlace Suites Joplin has partnered with Orlando-based social enterprise Clean the World (www.cleantheworld.org) to collect and recycle hotel soaps and bottled-amenities to help fight the global spread of preventable diseases.

The soaps collected by the hotel will be shipped to Clean the World for recycling and distribution to communities and countries in greatest need through the efforts of Clean the World Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization.

Clean the World is the largest global recycler of hotel amenities. In just four years of operation the charitable and philanthropic Clean the World Foundation has distributed more than 15 million bars of soap to children and families in the United States, Haiti and more than 70 countries worldwide.

The TownePlace Suites Joplin has 74 rooms and is projected to provide more than 1,115 lbs of bar soap and bottled amenities to Clean the World annually for recycling, which is enough to provide hygiene supplies and comfort for hundreds of children and families worldwide for each year.

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. Clean the World has a mission to put soap in the hands of people who need it most to improve hygiene and sanitation conditions.

Clean the World has partnered with over 1,800 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 1,000 tons of hotel waste from polluting landfills in the United States and Canada.

"Our hotel partners are the driving forces behind our global hygiene revolution," says Shawn Seipler, CEO at Clean the World. "By making a commitment to sustainable, socially responsible programs in the hospitality industry, partners such as the TownePlace Suites Joplin are using the leftover resources of soaps and bottled amenities to help save lives."

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.
