Siesta Key hotel, Tropical Beach Resorts is doing its part to help!

Clean the World

Tropical Beach Resorts partnered with Clean the World back in October 2012. Clean the world is a non-profit organization that collects used bars of soap, shampoo, conditioner and other amenities from hotels. They then sanitize and redistribute throughout the world and even in our own communities. Since then we have collectively produced 2,059 recycled bars of life saving soap and stopped 956 pounds of waste from lying in our local landfill just from our resort alone! They currently have sent over 8,500 hygiene packs to the Oklahoma tornado victims and over 19,000 packs to those affected by hurricane Sandy.

Here is the process…. they collect all of the bar soap into n a vat which is then sanitized and melted together to be formed into a new bar of soap. The plastic bottles containing shampoo, conditioner and body wash are sorted. Those containing 25 percent or more are sanitized and redistributed locally to homeless and abuse shelters. The bottles containing less than 25 percent of liquid are squeezed and the liquid is used in the facility while the bottle is recycled. The plastic bottles are not sent over to countries of need of soap since there are no ways of recycling them over there. The distribution of soap is earth friendly and uses as less waste as possible.

3.5 Million children under the years of 5 die each year due to hygiene related illnesses.  Just the simple act of washing their hands could prevent many deaths. We at Tropical Beach Resorts are proud to aid in helping this cause. Each staff member does their part in maintaining the procedure of collecting the in-room amentities to the Clean the World center. We urge other hotels to do the same. There are ways even a single individual could help with the project too!  Find the many different ways you and your community can make a difference at www.CleantheWorld.org.

Here are Tropical Beach Resorts on Siesta Key, we are committed to being a green, environmental friendly hotel. If you have other ideas on how we can improve and make a difference, please let us know!
