NEW YORK—The International Hotel, Motel + Restaurant Show (IHMRS) has announced a partnership with Clean the World to produce a One Project building event during the 98th IHMRS, November 10 to 12, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City. The objective is to assemble 10,000 One Project hygiene kits over three days with the assistance of IHMRS visitors. Clean the World collects, recycles and distributes soap and shampoo products discarded by the hospitality industry. Most hotels discard slightly used soap and bottled amenities, which often end up in already overcrowded landfills. By shipping discarded amenities to Clean the World, hotels reduce waste management costs and help save lives while being environmentally responsible. The soap products are then put through a strict sanitation process at Clean the World’s soap recycling plant before being redistributed. “Hygiene-related illnesses such as pneumonia and diarrheal disease kill about 9,000 children a day,” said Shawn Seipler, founder and executive director of Clean the World.
