London Heathrow Marriott, Europe's First Hotel to Partner With Clean the World

Iconic London Hotel Partners With Clean the World for Their European Soap Recycle Plan

HAYES, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 12/18/15 -- Heathrow Airport -- London Heathrow Marriott Hotel pledges its commitment to a greener environment with its announcement as the first hotel in Europe to partner with Clean the World to recycle discarded soap.

Clean the World is a global enterprise that repurposes hygiene supplies left behind by hotel guests, to benefit homeless shelters, senior citizens and struggling families around the world.

The London property has teamed up with the initiative as part of the hotel's dedication to environmental sustainability. Having been recognised previously by Greenleaders and Green Tourism for its effort to mitigate the impacts of climate change, the hotel is a leader in green practices in the hospitality industry.

"Clean The World does a fantastic job of distributing these and other donated products to impoverished people, preventing millions of hygiene-related deaths each year -- we're very pleased to be the first hotel to make a contribution to this cause," said Ron Vos, General Manager of the hotel. "Hundreds of people fly in and out of Heathrow Airport every day and as a result we see hundreds of leisure and business guests come through our doors. If you think about the amount of soap that's discarded by each of these guests and then consider all the people in the world that may not have the luxury of hygiene products, it seems absurd to let it all go to waste."

"European hotels have a strong sustainability focus and are looking for new ways to embrace corporate social responsibility. This expansion is significant for us, and we couldn't ask for a better launch partner than the London Heathrow Marriott and Marriott International," Said Shawn Seipler, Clean the World's founder and CEO.

Recent advances in open source technology now allow organizations to run Serv...
In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It's clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. Th...
The benefits of automated cloud deployments for speed, reliability and security are undeniable.

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. This...

Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Lo...
Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality.
