For immediate release: Thursday February 6, 2020
Windsor, ON –A strong commitment to the environment and a desire to clean the world won Kelly Laforest, Health, Safety & Environment Specialist and Michelle Thompson, Security Shift Manager a trip to Las Vegas in January to help distribute hygiene products to the community as part of the Clean the World initiative.
Clean The World is a non-profit organization that Caesars Entertainment has partnered with as part of their CodeGreen initiative. Clean the World sterilizes used shampoos and soaps and recycles them into new products. These items are packed into hygiene kits and distributed to local organizations.
Kelly and Michelle participated in the Caesars Entertainment Clean the World Contest and were two of the six team members selected across all Caesars properties. Once in Las Vegas they toured the Clean the World facilities and built and distributed over 500 hygiene kits to local homeless organizations and food banks.
“I love being able to communicate the need for environmental programs and how one person can make a difference. This opportunity gave me the opportunity to make a difference on a bigger scale,” said Kelly Laforest.
Since 2010, Caesars Entertainment and Clean the World have partnered together to not only reduce waste in our landfills by recycling soap and shampoo amenities from guestrooms, but have saved lives and made a huge positive impact in communities around the globe.
