Did you know here at BEST WESTERN PLUS Shelter Cove Lodge we have a green way of thinking? BEST WESTERN PLUS Shelter Cove Lodge is a proud partner with Clean the World, to collect and recycle soap, shampoos, conditioners, lotions and gels that help fight the global spread of preventable disease. The soaps collected by BEST WESTERN PLUS Shelter Cove Lodge and Martin Resorts properties are shipped to Clean the World for recycling and distribution to communities and countries in greatest need. Clean the World Foundation 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.
The Clean the World partnership fits with Martin Resort’s green initiatives and sustainability practices and each Martin Resorts property participates. In 2012, Martin Resorts collected 3,629 pounds of materials, which produced 19,355 new bars of soap to be distributed, while diverting 5,138 pounds of waste from local landfills.
In 2012, BEST WESTERN PLUS Shelter Cove Lodge collected 520 pounds of soap, which produced 2,773 new bars of soap to be distributed to children and families in need all over the world, while diverting 778 pounds of waste from local landfills.
We are happy with our success in 2012 and can’t wait to see what 2013 has in store!
