Recycling, Waste Reduction

Repurposing Used Soap to Fight Disease Overseas

Our innkeeper and housekeeper noticed, “our total waste of soap.” Each time a guest used a fresh bar…it had to be thrown away. While attending a Green Seminar, our innkeeper was told about the non-profit organization Clean the World and their soap recycling program. Now, we collect our used soaps (and those from other local inns) & send them to the program. There, they are sterilized & reformed, then distributed to impoverished communities throughout the world. Simply providing soap to these communities helps prevent potentially fatal diseases, as well as reducing the amount of waste we are putting into landfills.
