Today, the Bethlehem-based Las Vegas Sands Resort worked in tandem with the Las Vegas Sand Corp and three other properties to help spread global hygiene awareness.

Specifically, the 4,000 team members and volunteers from the organizations built 20,000 hygiene kits in a 24 hour time frame on Saturday, Sept. 26, to distribute worldwide, including the homeless population in the U.S. The effort was the company’s largest to date. The project was part of Sands Cares—the LVS’ corporate citizen program and its partnership with Clean the World, a social enterprise dedicated to helping millions around the world.

“Through this ambitious global Sands Cares event, we are helping hundreds of thousands of people without access to hygiene supplies to help them stay healthy,” says Ron Reese, senior vice president of corporate communications at LVS. “Today showed the amazing impact people can have by uniting around a single mission.”

Each kit features soap and other hygiene items collected from Clean the World’s hospitality partners. Other amenities include shampoo, conditioner, a toothbrush and toothpaste, to form individual personal care kits.

LVS underwrote the event, with support from Sysco. LVS and Clean the World have a strong partnership focused helping those in need and protecting the planet. Since 2011, LVS and Clean the World have recycled more than 50 tons of waste from LVS properties into more than 550,000 bars of soap.

“Today’s accomplishment illustrates the collective commitment of Las Vegas Sands and Clean the World to make our world healthier through sustainable solutions that address and solve social ills,” says Shawn Seipler, founder and CEO of Clean the World. “A global build of this magnitude makes far-reaching impact, providing reclaimed hygiene supplies to people and places we normally can’t reach—a win for people and a win for the planet,”

Running from September 2019 to March 2020, the eight program options feature views everywhere from a luxury yacht or kayak, on top of a frozen lake, looking down over the fjords, or drifting on the Arctic waters. The itineraries for each program can be personalized for the needs and optimal experience of each guest.

 

Recognized for its sustainable performance and design, The Source Hotel has been awarded LEED Silver certification. Owned by Zeppelin Development, the 92,000-square-foot building was destined to meet LEED standards from its inception with sustainability at the forefront of the project.
