Ever Wondered What Happens To Unused Hotel Soap?

Date June 18, 2018

If you travel and stay in hotels from time to time, you know that every room is usually set with one small hygiene kit per guest. Usually, the bars of soap are left used, but barely so.

As the bar of soap is a product for personal hygiene, it is never not reused by other guests, so the hotels basically throw away tons of soap bars and other bottled amenity yearly.

The founders of the company Clean The World considered it a huge waste of valuable material! So they figured out a better destiny for those unused products.

They recycle the old soap, melt it down and sanitize it in order to produce the new bars and send them out worldwide for those in need.

Washing your hands seems like an ordinary routine, so we probably never think of how vital it is. According to World Health Organization, however, inadequate sanitation is one of the key factors that increase the mortatility rate among children around the globe.

The leading fatal diseases among children are pneumonia and diarrhea, both easily prevented by simple hygiene.

Soap matters! Clean The World has taken up the important mission of distributing this valuable product to the poorest and needy regions of the globe, saving lives while also protecting nature.

They have been working with only 20 percent of the hotels in the USA, byt they plan to recruit more volunteers who can give away, collect, help recycle and distribute their products.
