FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Mission Possible and Clean the World Launch Downtown Eastside Recycling Centre that Promises to Save Lives!

"This is truly a win, win, win! It's good for the environment, it creates green jobs for women at risk in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside, and ultimately, it will prevent the deaths of children around the world," says Mission Possible, Brian Postlewait


2010-08-15
VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA, August 15, 2010 (Press-News.org) Over 3.5 million deaths occur every year from acute respiratory infection and diarrheal disease affecting children five and under. These deaths are preventable greatly, perhaps up to 60% by proper hand washing using simple bar soap. At the same time, the hospitality industry commits Millions of pounds of soap to North American landfills. This is a negative equation awaiting a positive solution. In steps Clean the World and Mission Possible...
Clean the World, a US based non-profit, and Mission Possible a Downtown Eastside charity are partnering to recycle soap and save lives.
On August 16th 2010, Mission Possible is opening a recycling centre employing women at risk who reside in Vancouver's downtown eastside. The employed women will help clean and sanitize the gently used soap and bottled amenities discarded from hotels. This reasonably priced recycling program sends the newly sanitized and repurposed soap to communities of need around the world as well as local homeless shelters.
Join us as we launch this new recycling social enterprise at Mission Possible (543 Powell St.) on August 16th at 1:00pm.

Every day in North America, thousands of hotels discard millions of pounds of soap and shampoo. These products often end up in already overflowing landfills and contaminate fragile groundwater systems.

Impoverished people around the world die every day from acute respiratory infection and diarrheal disease because they have no soap. The death toll is staggering. Each year more than five million lives are lost to these diseases with the majority of deaths being among children less than five years old. Studies have shown that simple hand washing substantially reduces the spread of these diseases. Unfortunately, the essential items for proper hand washing are unobtainable for millions of people worldwide.
