Hotel Sorella partners with Clean the World

Did you know that Hotel Sorella is a Clean the World affiliate?  Our Hotel collects guests’ gently used bath amenities, including soap, shampoo conditioner and lotion, which Clean the World, a global non-profit, then sanitizes and recycles in a patented process effectively killing all pathogens.

Since its 2009 inception, Clean the World, a natural disaster first responder, has put approximately 10 million soap bars and 200,000 pounds of shampoo and conditioner back into human use in 45 countries, simultaneously eliminating over 600 tons of waste.

Hotel Sorella and Valencia Group are honored to be a part of Clean the World and a program that not only repurposes a former waste product that can potentially contaminate groundwater systems in landfills, but also targets preventable illnesses that are among the leading causes of death among young children!

Join us at CITYCENTRE’s Sunday Market for an Earth Day soap drive on April 22nd from 4pm until 7 pm.  The Soap Truck will be there and with each purchase, they will  make a soap donation to Clean the World!  Bring your donations of unused soaps and  bottled amenities!  See you there!
