DID YOU KNOW? Every day hotels worldwide discard millions of bars of soap. Every year 1.7 million children die worldwide from disease and infection. Half a million of these children could still be alive if they simply had soap to wash their hands. The plastic used for hotel toiletries is manufactured from expensive recyclable Polyethylene terephthalate or High-density polyethylene. Unfortunately, empty or half-full bottles cannot currently be recycled and end up in landfill or incinerated.
