Every day of my life, I lather up with a bar of soap from a hotel from somewhere in this land. Even when I'm home, it's hotel soap...everyday.
It's not always easy. I have to remember to pack a baggie on each trip in order to bring my used soap home. But, I do it because imagining the utter waste of all that soap from every hotel room every day makes me crazy. The estimate is 2.6 million bars of soap are discarded by hotels every single day.
2.6 million bars. Think about that.
I'd start buying soap, however, if I knew that the hotels in which I stay were part of the Global Soap Project...an organization that collects partially-used and discarded soap from hotels, recycles it into millions of new bars and distributes the new soap through global health programs to people who lack access to it around the world.
Spread the word. Let's get every hotel in North America to join the Global Soap Network...and save lives around the world.
