Hilton to recycle used bars of soap from guest rooms

Published on : Tuesday, March 19, 2019

Hilton will recycle used bars of soap from guest rooms across its hotels into 1 million new bars of soap by October 15 which is Global Handwashing Day. The company said that the used soap will be ‘crushed, sanitized and cut into new soap bars’.

 

 

 

Hilton (HLT) said it will collect soap from its various hotels, including Embassy Suites, Hilton Garden Inn, Hampton, Homewood Suites and Home2 Suites. The project is in conjunction with Clean the World, a social organization that distributes soap to communities in need.

 

 

 

Hilton has had similar initiatives in the past. Hilton’s recycling program has helped Clean the World distribute 7.6 million bars of recycled soap over the past decade, keeping 2 million pounds of soap and bottles out of landfills. Other than soap, Hilton recycles lotion and shampoo bottles into travel bottles of hygiene products.

 

 

 

Hilton is one of the many companies focused on recycling. Businesses face disruption from climate change, and customers increasingly demand that products and services are environmentally friendly.

 

 

 

Clean Your World also has a partnership with Marriott (MAR), and logistics partnerships with UPS and Guest Supply, a supplier of hotel room toiletries.

 

 

 

Sustainability is a major concern in the hospitality sector.
