What do the Ritz-Carlton, Marriott Vacation Club, Courtyard and 175 hotel properties among the best-known brands have in common?   They are participating in a ground-swell of a movement to Clean the World.  I came across this heart-warming story on Twitter of all places and followed the links to the very popular, Barbara DeLollis who pens the USAToday column, Hotel Check-In* and the National Geographic Traveller**.

 

The Orlando Marriott World Center and the Marriott Vacation Clubs at Sabal, Royal and Imperial Palms are among the participating hotels.***  Kudos to Marriott in Florida for doing the right thing.  For a list of participating brands, see Clean the World. ****

 

What do you think?  Is Marriott doing the right thing?

    That's a great spot, tjcnewyork!  It looks like an excellent initiative ... I'd always wondered what they did with all of those 'once used' bars of soap and shampoos.  Let's hope that Marriott are able to do this on a global basis.
