Hotels that contribute the most soap to Clean the World‘s global hygiene campaign usually are located in bigger cities — New York, Chicago, Las Vegas and Orlando, among them. Usually. But not always.
In Missouri, Harrah’s North Kansas City has collected more than 10,000 pounds of soap and 4,000 pounds of bottled amenities since signing on in 2011, making it a top contributor. Its efforts have enabled Clean the World to make 56,000 bars of recycled soap.
The nonprofit’s mission is saving lives. It does so by providing recycled soap and hygiene kits from nearly 2,000 hospitality partners to medical, educational and food bank organizations, and the homeless or displaced, throughout the world. In other developments:
- The International Hotel, Motel & Restaurant Show, at the Javits Convention Center in New York in November, announced plans to assemble 10,000 hygiene kit during its three-day (Nov. 10-12) gathering.
