Hotel partners with Clean the World
Hotel Laguna is collecting gently used hotel soap, shampoo, conditioner and lotion to send to needy families worldwide as part of a new collaboration, according to a news release.
The hotel has partnered with Clean the World Global LLC, a charitable organization that focuses on reducing landfill waste and preventing hygiene-related illness and death in impoverished communities in more than 45 countries.
"Upon learning of the amazing work this organization is doing, I knew this was something the Hotel Laguna had to join immediately," hotel Chief Operating Officer Heinz U. Hofmann said in a statement. "It brings me extreme joy to be aiding in the cause of not only saving the lives of children throughout the globe, but also increasing our efforts of reducing our landfill waste and continuing our ongoing legacy to philanthropic causes."
As the largest global recycler of hotel amenities, Clean the World has more than 1,100 hotel property partners, which represent 260,000 hotel rooms, according to the release. In the last two years, the foundation has distributed more than 8.5 million bars of soap and has diverted 600 tons of discarded hotel waste from local landfills.
