SUNRIVER RESORT JOINS CLEAN THE WORLD TO RECYCLE SOAP AND SAVE LIVES
An estimated 1.5 tons of soap, shampoo, conditioner and lotion to be donated in 2011
(SUNRIVER, Ore.)— Sunriver Resort is one of five hotels in Oregon and the only hotel in central Oregon to participate in the Clean the World program.
Thousands of hotels discard millions of pounds of soaps daily; Sunriver Resort is not one of them. All used soap, shampoo, conditioner and lotion at Sunriver Resort is donated to the Clean the World program. Clean the World sanitizes and distributes the recycled soap, shampoo, conditioner and lotion to impoverished countries worldwide and to domestic homeless shelters.
Clean the World estimates that more than five million lives are lost to acute respiratory infection and diarrheal disease because people around the world do not have soap and the necessary essential items for proper hand washing. “Sunriver Resort is proud to partner with Clean the World. With as much soap, shampoo, conditioner and lotion that is used at Sunriver Resort, we wanted to do our part in recycling these unused products in order to help others,” said Executive Housekeeper, Meredith Gillespie.
An estimated 1.5 tons of soap, shampoo, conditioner and lotion are to be donated by Sunriver Resort in 2011.
