Clean the World-One Bottle at a Time
Did you leave your soap or shampoo in the room during your most recent stay at Stowe Mountain Lodge? If so, we're glad that you did! In 2013, Stowe Mountain Lodge has donated 1,157 lbs. of used soaps and amenities to the Clean the World Program based in Orlando, Florida.
This donation translates into 2,842 bars of soap distributed to people in need, 470 lbs. of plastic recycled and diverted from Vermont’s landfills, and 1,663 amenity bottles distributed to people around the globe.
Approximately 3.5 million children under the age of 5 will die this year due to pneumonia and diarrheal disease. 65% of these deaths could be prevented through simple hand washing. We're extremely proud to partner with the Clean the World program to help as many of these children survive as we can. In 2013, throughout the entire hotel industry, 14,110,695 bars of soap have been distributed to children and people in need both in the United States and abroad.
We thank you for your support in this important project during your stay here at Stowe Mountain Lodge, as we continue to increase the amount of soap and amenities we are able to provide to the Clean the World organization. I am proud of what my team has been able to accomplish!
