Hilton’s Garden Inn and Hampton by Hilton hotels have partnered with Clean the World to recycle discarded soap, as well as shampoo bottles and other hygiene products. The move will help Hilton achieve its goal of sending zero waste to landfill by 2030, which is part of the company’s Travel with Purpose corporate responsibility initiative.
Clean the World distributes soap made from discarded bars donated by hotels around the world to families in need. The discarded soap is crushed, sanitized and cut into new soap. The organization then distributes bars of soap to individuals in need or adds them to hygiene kits along with shampoo, a toothbrush and a towel.
Environmental Leader has more details:
Hilton Garden Inn and Hampton by Hilton will recycle discarded soap – along with bottles of shampoo and other hygiene products – via a new partnership with Clean the World.
Hilton already works with the Clean the World program to distribute bars of recycled soap and hygiene kits to communities in need via its Embassy Suites, Homewood Suits and Home2 Suites. The new partnership will more than double the number of hotels the company has in the program.
The move to work with Clean the World will help Hilton achieve its goal of sending zero soap to landfill by 2030. To date, the hospitality company says it has diverted more than 397,000 pounds of waste from landfills.
