Hotel 43Clean the World
When I was in high school, my favorite soap opera was Dark Shadows, all about vampires.
Then, when I was in college and when my kids were little, I got hooked on General Hospital and the whole Luke and Laura thing. Guilty pleasures.
Today, I heard of something soapy that’s not all washed up (sorry!). Seems Lisa Benjamin, GM over at Hotel 43 in Boise, is partnering with Clean the World. It’s not a soap opera, more like a soap saver, and this nonprofit actually takes used (gently used) soap and recycles it worldwide to well, the dirty and grimy who can really use a good sudsing.
So far they’ve recycled six million soap bars and 200,000 pounds of shampoo and conditioner!! That equals about 340 tons of waste that hasn’t gone to waste! The big bonus here is this soap is being distributed in places where it can actually make a difference, preventing hygiene-related illness or even death.
Bubble on, Clean the World and Hotel 43!
And now for a musical rendition of one of my favorite dirty little ditties:
