Starwood hotels plans to recycle hotel shampoos, soaps
Did you know your unused hotel toiletries could be put toward recycling efforts to help people in need?
That's the premise behind Clean the World, a social enterprise working with hotels around the world in an effort to help improve lives and protect our planet.
In an effort to give back, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. inked an agreement with Clean the World on Earth Day to collect and recycle hotel soaps, shampoos, conditioners, lotions and gels to help fight the global spread of preventable diseases. The deal would include around 500 Starwood hotels in North America (Starwood's brands include St. Regis®, The Luxury Collection®, W®, Westin®, Le Méridien®, Sheraton®, Four Points® by Sheraton, Aloft®, and Element).
According to Clean the World, an estimated 1.6 million pounds of hotel soap may be recycled each year through this partnership.
