CHATTANOOGA, TN -- (Marketwired) -- 08/05/13 -- As the movement toward sustainability gains momentum, the hospitality industry is faced with a unique conundrum: How to provide top-quality service while remaining ecologically responsible. There are, of course, many components to this issue, but TownePlace Suites Chattanooga Near Hamilton Place has discovered one rather compelling solution, and that is the Global Soap Project.
Begun in May 2009, the Global Soap Project collects partially used soaps from hotels and reprocesses them into new bars that are distributed to vulnerable populations around the world. Considering that approximately 2.6 million bars of soap are discarded every day in hotels alone, this initiative presents a major opportunity both to prevent unnecessary waste and to improve global public health.
The Chattanooga long-term-stay hotel joined the Global Soap Project with impressive alacrity after opening. The program's dual advantages of helping the environment and the health of people around the world spoke to the ethical philosophy of this hotel near Hamilton Place in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Global Soap Project's co-founder, Derreck Kayongo, is himself a former refugee who has seen firsthand just how drastically hand-washing can prevent illness, infection and death. His idea to reprocess partially used soaps from hotels is both simple and powerful, and the housekeeping staff at this Chattanooga extended-stay hotel has wasted no time in putting it into action. The staff collects leftover soaps from rooms after guests have checked out and then ships them to Atlanta where they are recycled and distributed around the world. Guests staying in these spacious suites in Chattanooga, Tennessee enjoy all the comforts of a home-away-from-home while simultaneously helping the environment and at-risk populations.
