Have you ever thought about what happens to that bar of soap in your hotel room you only used
once? One man did while visiting a hotel in 2008 and since then has founded Clean The World.
At Quality Hospitality, soap, shampoos, conditioners, lotions, and the like in our hotels gets recycled through Hilton’s participation with Clean The World.
The Clean the World Organization recycles, repackages, and then repurposes the soaps and bottles by donating them to underdeveloped areas that will benefit.
Here’s how it works: Items like soap bars and bottles of lotion are taken from rooms after guests stay with us and are placed in designated boxes to be donated to Clean The World. Then, they sort through the items, clean, sanitize, and repackage the products. The repurposed goods are then sent to those in need in countries all over the world.
Over the past few years of participation, Quality Hospitality hotels have been able to recycle thousands of soaps to be distributed to those in need. In our Homewood Suites by Hilton Atlanta I-85-Lawrenceville-Duluth alone, 1,090 soap bars were distributed and 94 lbs. of plastics were recycled just in 2018 alone.
Our hotels continue to work with the Clean the World organization to keep soap out of the landfill and also impact the lives of millions around the world.
