Vintage Hotels is pleased to shine light on our partnership with Clean the World Canada, a not-for-profit initiative that collects and recycles soap and hygiene products from the hospitality industry and provides them to impoverished people. We’re proud to be a part of their mission to save lives by recycling soap and hygiene amenities from our hotels and distributing them to the people who need it most.
Soap Saves Lives
When we pick up that bar of soap by the sink, we may not think much about its impact; it’s a household staple in our everyday lives. However, poor sanitation and improper hygiene have historically been the greatest predictors of disease. Particularly in developing nations, soap may not be as readily available, and as a result, many people—most of them children under the age of 5—suffer from preventable illness that could be significantly reduced if they simply had ready access to soap.
Throughout the pandemic, we saw first-hand how the simple act of washing our hands regularly helped prevent the spread of disease. This is just one way in which soap saves lives every day, and at Vintage Hotels, we believe in the power of simple acts that add up to a big impact. Through recycling our hotel toiletries with the Clean the World program, we’re helping to provide soap to thousands of children worldwide, saving lives and promoting the health of communities everywhere.
Recycling Soap Saves the Planet
When you stay at a one of our hotels, you might wonder what happens to the soap and other hygiene products in your guestroom after you leave. Sadly, in the past, these products were simply thrown away, creating excess waste and adding to overfilled landfills.
By recycling our hygiene products at Vintage Hotels, we’re not only saving lives—we’re saving the planet. Every product donated is a product that won’t find its way into a landfill and will be used by people who need it most. It’s a win-win for everyone.
Clean the World: Saving Children, One Bar of Soap at a Time
Clean the World is serious about soap, and since their inception in 2009, they’ve already made a massive impact, with 50 million bars of soap donated to children and families in 127 countries around the globe. They partner with other non-profit organizations such as World Vision and Feeding America for maximum reach.
Rest assured knowing that your high-quality hotel toiletries will never go to waste after your stay at one of our hotels. Our partnership with Clean the World Canada is just another part of our commitment to giving back to the global community, enriching the lives of those in need.
