Recently, as part of our ongoing “Green Lodging” program, we started recycling leftover guest soaps. Every day thousands of hotels and other lodgings discard thousands of pounds of leftover soaps which then end up in landfills. We have partnered with Clean the World (cleantheworld.org) to have all of our leftover soaps “re-batched” and sterilized. Clean the World then distributes the recycled soap products to impoverished countries and domestic homeless shelters.
We received our first report from Clean the World and we are proud to annouce that last month we donated enough soap for 40 children for one month!
Special recognition goes to Kelly (our inn manager) and our wonderful housekeepers: Bozena, Anna, Peter, and Agata. Thank you for your efforts!
