Marietta Corporation Partners with Clean the World

Green (Living) Review

Marietta Corporation Partners with Clean the World to Highlight Corporate Social Responsibility and ‘Green’ Portfolio of Services for Hospitality Industry Hotel soaps and bottled amenities will be collected, recycled and distributed to children and families to help stop the spread of preventable diseases in the United States, Canada and more than 40 countries. Marietta Corporation, a leading hotel amenities provider to the hospitality industry worldwide, has partnered with Clean the World Global LLC to help recycle hotel soaps and bottled amenities and stop the spread of preventable diseases worldwide. The partnership broadens Marietta’s corporate social responsibility initiatives among its extensive list of hotel partners in North America and extends its eco-friendly portfolio of amenity services, which already include “green” product offerings, such as Aveda, Naturals, PAYA Organics, ProTerra, Sonoma Soap Company, Earth’s Accents, Dispensers and Eco Gallons. Orlando, Fla.-based Clean the World, a social enterprise committed to saving lives and protecting our planet, is the largest global recycler of hotel amenities and offers sustainable, socially responsible, and charitable programs and services to the international hospitality community. Each day, 9,000 children around the world die from diseases such as acute respiratory infection and diarrheal diseases that can be prevented by washing with soap. Clean the World Foundation Inc., the 501 (c) (3) charitable arm of Clean the World Global LLC, has a mission to provide soap where needed to help improve hygiene and sanitation conditions, to lessen the impact of disease, and to promote better hygiene and living conditions worldwide. “Marietta Corporation strives to align itself with companies whose vision and values are similar to our own,” says Donald W. Sturdivant, chief executive officer of Marietta Corporation. “Clean the World has proven itself to be a force within the hospitality industry for soap and guest room amenities recycling, and its hospitality program is rapidly becoming the industry standard for sustainability efforts throughout North America. We are extremely proud to be contributing toward the vital work which Clean the World is undertaking. The knowledge that providing soap to struggling parts of the world not only adds to people’s quality of life, but actually saves lives, is utterly gratifying.” Clean the World has partnered with more than 1,050 hotel properties in North America to provide soaps and bottled amenities to people in need. In just two years of operation, through the efforts of the Clean the World Foundation, the organization has distributed more than 8 million bars of soap to children and families in the United States and more than 40 countries worldwide, including Haiti, Japan, Zimbabwe, Uganda, India, Honduras, Mexico and Albania. While doing so, the organization has also fulfilled a valuable environmental mission by diverting an estimated 1.1 million lbs. (550 tons) of hotel waste from polluting landfills in the United States and Canada. “This partnership with Marietta Corporation signifies something remarkable about how the hospitality industry is responding to soap recycling and sustainability initiatives,” says Shawn Seipler, co-founder and chief executive officer at Clean the World. “Having such a well-known, well-respected amenities partner in this industry really validates what we are hoping to accomplish at Clean the World – to save lives by recycling soap. The reward will come in the number of children and families who will avoid death and disease as a result of this partnership, and we’re grateful to all of our hospitality partners who are interested in promoting better health, improved hygiene and a cleaner world.” Marietta Corporation has been a leader in hotel guest amenities, consumer product development and manufacturing since its founding in 1976. With corporate headquarters based in Cortland, New York and all 5 manufacturing facilities based in the USA, the company is dedicated to quality manufacturing practices and strictly follows the industry’s current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs) in its FDA-registered production facilities.

Analysis by country of fossil fuel burning-based Carbon Debt and Carbon Credit

Green Blog

Fossil fuel burning yielding the greenhouse gas (GHG) carbon dioxide (CO2) is a major component of man-made global warming.
