Holiday Inn Express in Reston, VA teams up with Global Soap Project
Date:5/14/2013

(PRWEB) May 14, 2013

The Holiday Inn Express Reston/Herndon has teamed up with the Global Soap Project to recycle used hotel soap from check out rooms to be reprocessed into usable soap for developing countries.

The Global Soap Project is working to save lives and improve global health by recycling used hotel soap and turning it into new bars that are distributed to vulnerable populations around the world. The Global Soap Project partners with leading global health organizations such as the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), CARE, Partners in Health, and others, to maximize the impact of its’ efforts while supporting existing health programs in local communities.

With 4.6-million hotel/motel rooms in the United States, an estimated 2.6-million soap bars are discarded every day. By participating in this program, hoteliers are diverting tons of waste from landfills and bolstering environmental sustainability programs. Hotel managers, housekeepers and guests become more environmentally conscious and more sensitive to the needs of vulnerable populations.

  •     1.4 million deaths can be prevented each year by hand washing with soap
  •     7 million children have died since 2009 due to disease that could have been prevented with proper hygiene
  •     Children under 5 who wash with soap can reduce their risk of pneumonia by 50%
  •     The World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control actively promote hand washing to save lives by preventing illness and infectious diseases
  •     Hand washing with soap is among the most effective and inexpensive ways to prevent diarrheal diseases and pneumonia, which together account for 3.5 million child deaths annually.
  •     Hand washing by birth attendants before delivery red
