The Empire State Bed and Breakfast Association (ESBBA) EXPO FOR EXCELLENCE was held in Corning at the Corning Museum of Glass (CMOG), October 8 and 9, 2010. Clean the World, the non-profit organization dedicated to saving lives at home and abroad by providing recycled soap to those who need it, was there. Peter Insalaco, the representative in the Northeastern United States spoke during a lunchtime presentation on Monday, and was available the duration of the conference. Clean the World collects used soap and amenities from bed and breakfasts, inns, and hotels, and from anyone who would like to donate, and after sterilization, distributes the items to third world countries as well as homeless shelters in the United States. Clean the World maintains an environmentally and hygienically safe recycling process which ensures that the soap and other items that are recycled and distributed domestically and abroad are completely safe.
Many deaths from disease, world-wide can be prevented by good hygiene - and simply washing with soap. For more information see the Clean the World, and consider becoming a partner.
