BETHESDA, Md., March 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Delta Hotels by Marriott announced today a new amenity partnership with Soapbox, providing premium bath products to guests worldwide while donating soap to communities in need worldwide. The naturally-derived Soapbox products featured in the guestroom amenity kits including shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotion, liquid hand soap and bar soap will begin rolling out to all 50 properties within the brand's global portfolio this month.
"We are very excited and proud to enter into this relationship with Soapbox," said Gregory Durrer, Global Brand Leader of Delta Hotels by Marriott. "Not only are we giving guests a great bath experience with quality products they will love, but we are also making a change in children's lives around the world. It is a win-win."
The collaboration between Delta Hotels and Soapbox will provide an estimated 1.4 million bars of soap to communities in need across the globe in 2018 through Soapbox's buy-one-give-one model. As part of the relationship, each amenity kit will include a unique "Hope Code." Delta Hotels guests can enter the Hope Code found on their individual in-room amenities on Soapbox's website, to see where that particular kit's contribution will be allocated.
"Soapbox's mission is to empower customers to change the world through everyday, quality purchases," said CEO and co-founder Dave Simnick. "Partners like this ensure we can continue to donate bars of soap to those in need around the world. This is a true collaboration effort and we are thrilled to be able to provide Delta Hotels' guests with high-quality products that give back."
Delta Hotels and Soapbox's relationship ladders directly into Marriott International's new sustainability and social impact platform, Serve 360, which is dedicated to identifying opportunities to sustain responsible operations while nurturing the world.
"Our relationship with Soapbox is powerful, in that it offers guests the unique ability to seamlessly be a part of positive global impact," added Durrer.
In conjunction with the amenity roll out, Marriott Rewards® will be offering a first-of-its-kind cause-related experience in India next November, hosted by Delta Hotels and Soapbox charitable partner, Sundara. Starting March 16, Rewards members will be able to use points for a chance to bid on a travel package to include business class flights for a member and his or her guest to Mumbai, with a six-day, five-night stay. The package will be available through the Marriott Moments platform and feature a community visit to one of Mumbai's neighboring villages with Delta Hotels to meet Sundara's hygiene ambassadors, help launch hygiene stations, and facilitate soap recycling demonstrations to the local community.
