Clean the World at Bed and Breakfast Conference

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.

Thanks, Barbara, for highlighting the work of Clean the World. We certainly appreciate the kind words.

As you may know, Clean the World has been actively involved in preventing the spread of cholera in Haiti. Clean the World has already delivered 100,000 soap bars to Haiti and another 200,000 is on the way. This would not be possible without the dedication and support of our more than 550 hotel and B&B partners throughout North America.

Thanks so much for your generosity -- not only for Haiti, but for the ongoing soap distribution to people who need it most in the United States and more than 40 countries. In less than two years we've recycled and distributed more than 6 million soap bars worldwide.

If you'd like to make a financial donation to help advance our "hygiene revolution" and provide more soap this holiday season, please visit the donation page on the Clean the World website. You'll see just how much soap you can provide with certain donation amounts. Makes a great gift! http://www.cleantheworld.org/donate-money.asp

Again, your generosity is greatly appreciated. Thanks for helping Clean the World.
