Marriott Vacation Club has always been proactive in community involvement. Truly more than community involvement, Marriott has led the way for other large corporations to lend a helping hand in a wide variety of venues. Marriott Vacations Club, timeshare, is not only an excellent choice for timeshare ownership, but a conscientious one as well.
From their press release on Wall Street Journal’s “Market Watch”:
“Marriott Vacation Club, a global leader in vacation ownership and brand of Marriott Vacations Worldwide Corporation announces a partnership with Clean the World Foundation, Inc., a leader in the global hygiene revolution. Clean the World recycles partially used bars of soap and bottled amenities from resorts in the United States and distributes the new soap and hygiene kits to communities that lack access to these essential items.
Each day 9,000 children around the world die from diseases such as acute respiratory illness and diarrheal diseases which can be prevented by washing with soap. Clean the World has a mission to put soap in the hands of people who need it most to improve hygiene and sanitation conditions, to reduce the impact of disease and to promote better hygiene and living conditions worldwide.
“Currently, 31 of 43 Marriott Vacation Club resorts in the United States have contributed over 9,800 lbs. of soap and 6,100 lbs. of bottled amenities which have been recycled at Clean the World’s three recycling facilities in North America. As a result, more than 52,500 clean bars of soap and hygiene kits have been distributed to 55 countries, diverting 8 tons of waste from landfills across the country. ”
