Is it just me or do y’all also feel weird about opening a new tiny bar of soap while you’re away? I know folks who always bring their own soap and won’t touch hotel soap, folks who stock their travel bags with it and others who use it as they think is intended: opening, washing and leaving it to be be…used by the next guest? thrown away?
Based on this article on The Hustle, the majority of hotel guests use hotel soap which is automatically thrown away upon checkout. That’s where Clean the World comes in:
Clean the World is a social enterprise with the mission of saving millions of lives around the world. We distribute recycled soap and hygiene products from more than 8,100+ hotel and resort partners to children and families in countries with a high death rate due to acute respiratory infection (pneumonia) and diarrheal diseases (cholera) – which are two of the top killers of children under 5.
Clean the World accomplishes its mission by collecting and recycling discarded soap and plastic amenity bottles from participating hospitality partners. Through the distribution of these and other donated hygiene products to impoverished people, help prevent millions of hygiene-related illnesses and deaths every year.
