Disneyland Resort honored for their soap recycling programby Leah Zanolla
Mar 12, 2013
The Disneyland Resort has been honored for their efforts in working with the Clean the World Foundation, Inc. Clean the World is an international organization that collects partially used soaps and shampoos from hotels and after sanitizing and repackaging them, sends them around the world to people in need. All the Disney hotels in Florida and California participate in the program; housekeepers voluntarily collect these items. Shawn Seipler, CEO and co-founder of Clean the World, was on-site last week to announce the honor. In 2012, the three Disneyland hotels donated almost 20,000 pounds of bath products, making them the top donator in California.
Pilar Hamil, general manager of the Disneyland Hotel, said, "The passionate, voluntary support of our housekeeping cast members is what makes this program successful at the Disneyland Resort. They have brought this program to life at our hotels and thousands of lives have already been changed because of them."
