What Lathers in Vegas Doesn’t Stay in Vegas

Las Vegas has a reputation for many things, but being squeaky clean and leading charitable causes are not two of them. Nevertheless, the city will soon host a new soap recycling facility to support the Clean the World Foundation, a nonprofit organization that collects, recycles and distributes recycled hotel soaps and bottled amenities (shampoo, conditioner, lotion etc.) to help stop the spread of preventable diseases in communities worldwide.

The Las Vegas recycling facility came about in large part due to a $250,000 grant from the Caesars Foundation, part of Caesars Entertainment, which owns and operates resorts under the Harrah's, Caesars and Horseshoe brand names. Each bar of soap is collected by housekeepers and then hygienically treated at the facility. Due to its vast supply of hotels and casinos, Las Vegas has quickly become one of Clean the World’s largest soap donating communities in the western United States with organizations such as Caesars Entertainment donating more than 100,000 pounds of soap last year.
