Vail Valley: Ritz-Carlton Bachelor gulch aids ‘Clean the World’ foundation

Daily Staff Report
Vail, CO, Colorado

The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch has joined a group of hotels in the Vail Vail Valley and elsewhere that are donating partially used soap products to the Clean the World Foundation.

The Orlando-based non profit, founded in February of last year, aims to reduce hygiene-related illnesses by recycling the hospitality industry’s partially used soap products and distributing them to shelters and countries facing sanitation crises. Since Haiti’s devastating earthquake in January, Clean the World has delivered 150 tons of recycled supplies to the island nation.

After collecting and sorting donated shampoo, conditioner and lotion, Clean the World sanitizes, re-processes and then delivers the recycled products to locations in need, both domestic and abroad.

Clean the World estimates that its partnership with The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch will reduce the resort’s annual waste production by 2.8 tons. Additionally, the foundation expects that one day’s worth of partially used bar soap collected from the hotel will provide 54 families with soap for a week.
