Vista Cay Resort by Millenium is Helping Clean the World—One Soap Bar at the Time
The recycling of discarded soap bars from Vista Cay Resort by Millenium is one of the many ways in which our resort contributes to making a better world—both locally and worldwide—with the help of non-profit organizations like Clean the World.
Vista Cay Resort by Millenium is proud to be an active participant in the Clean the World program. This non-profit organization collects and recycles soap bars from hospitality businesses--such as resorts and hotels--and then prepares hygiene kits to be given out in charity initiatives. Clean the World started as an idea by Shawn Seipler, a businessman who--during one of his many business trips--wondered what happened to all the leftover toiletries after guests leave a hotel room.
After he started Clean the World, Seipler saw the quick growth from idea to an initiative with the support of countless volunteers--and that's when the hospitality industry took notice. Today, the organization has several hundred resorts and hotels supporting it and distributes soap and hygiene kits to impoverished adults and children in both the U.S. and throughout the Caribbean, Central and South America, Africa, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.
Orlando is known as the family vacation capital of the world thanks to the thousands of families who come to visit its theme parks every day. Vista Cay Resort by Millenium particpates in the Clean the World program by collecting leftover soap bars from each condo suite then sends them to the organization's Soap Recycling plant, where the soap is sanitized and packaged for redistribution. So the next time you stay with us and leave what’s left of the soap bars behind be sure that rather than going to waste that soap will be put to good use.
Vista Cay Resort by Millenium is working hard to do its part in creating a better hospitality community. Join us in our effort and be mindful of the resources you use, always using your best judgment in making our world a better place to live and stay on your next Orlando vacation!
