Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) September 09, 2011
Bluegreen Corporation (NYSE: BXG), a leading provider of Colorful Places to Live and Play, today announced its Hershey, Pennsylvania resort, The Suites at Hershey, has joined the Clean the World Program. The Bluegreen will now participate in the nonprofit organization’s efforts to recycle soap and shampoo products and distribute them to those in need.
Clean the World Foundation, Inc., was founded in 2009 as a non-profit corporation with a two-part mission: To collect and recycle soap and shampoo products discarded by the hospitality industry every day and prevent the millions of deaths caused by hygiene-related illnesses that occur every day through the distribution of hygiene products to impoverished people. The organization collects discarded soap, shampoo, conditioner, and lotion from participating hospitality partners; recycles the products; and distributes the supplies to homeless shelters and impoverished countries.
The Bluegreen resort The Suites at Hershey will now participate in the program and donate discarded soap products to Clean the World.
“We are proud to participate in an organization that seeks to improve the living conditions for people around the world,” explains Jay Lloyd, Bluegreen Corporation General Manager for The Suites at Hershey. “As a Bluegreen resort, we seek to provide guests with superior accommodations. But the Company doesn’t stop there. We are committed to giving back to the communities in which we do business and to the people and organizations that surround our company.”
