InterContinental(R) Kuala Lumpur, First Hotel in Kuala Lumpur to Join SOAP FOR HOPE™ Launched by Sealed Air in Malaysia

InterContinental Kuala Lumpur hotel adopts and contributes used soap for recycling and distribution in Orang Asli communities as part of their corporate responsibility efforts.

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, 1 November 2015 – InterContinental Kuala Lumpur is proud to be the first hotel in Kuala Lumpur to recently participate in Soap for Hope™, a soap recycling program pioneered by Sealed Air in Malaysia. On 30 September 2015, the hotel officiated the adoption of the Bt.16 Orang Asli community in Gombak, Selangor together with Sealed Air and volunteers from MOAMI (Making Orang Asli Mothers Independent) by conducting a soap-making workshop.

The effort is part of the hotel’s corporate responsibility initiative to support the program that is aimed at saving lives by giving free soaps to communities that have no or limited access to soaps, providing livelihoods to the local community through soap-recycling, and helping hotels reduce waste and protecting the environment.
