PRESS RELEASE: The New Yorker Hotel's Discarded Amenities Now Recycled into Life-saving Tools

Orlando, FL — Thursday, June 3, 2010 — The New Yorker Hotel, the second hotel in New York to partner with Clean the World, will now provide nearly 400 children annually with desperately needed hygiene tools as part of an innovative program that recycles soap and distributes it to impoverished people worldwide.  The gently-used amenities from the hotel’s 912 rooms will skip a trip to the landfills and instead hit Clean the World’s Recycling Operations Center (ROCs).

“Now that we have The New Yorker Hotel on board, we are on track to open our New York metro-area ROC,” said Peter Insalaco, Regional Director at Clean the World.  “We are thrilled to have them as part of our program.  We’re ready to bring New York to the forefront of the Clean the World mission.”

Soap is both difficult to obtain in impoverished areas and crucial to preventing the spread of diarrheal disease and pneumonia, two of the biggest killers of children under age five. 

With upwards of 75,000 hotel rooms in the New York area, a tremendous amount of waste is generated from discarded hotel soap and amenities.  “We are extremely proud to help lessen needless waste and do it in a way that also has humanitarian purpose,” said Sylvia Lima, general manager of the New Yorker Hotel.

“The entire housekeeping department, when they heard of this tremendous effort from Clean the World, were very excited to be a part of it,” said Angela Sanchez, director of housekeeping.

Big-city amenities will continue to be recast with global purpose – just ask Clean the World and The New Yorker Hotel.
