Clean the World

Clean The World

Each day around the world, hotels discard a tremendous amount of unused soap and bottled amenities. In keeping with our eco-conscious and socially responsible core values, Hotel RL is partnering with Clean the World (CTW) organization to facilitate the collection and redistribution of unused soaps and amenities. Clean the World works with over 8,000 hospitality partners to collect, sanitize, reform, package and distribute soap and related products to people without access to soap in 127 countries worldwide. These products help prevent the millions of deaths caused by hygiene-related illnesses every year. We’re excited to have Hotel RL join with Clean the World and help make an impact in so many lives.

You can help contribute too. After your stay, feel free to leave any unused soap or bath amenities you do not wish to take with you on the bathroom counters. Our team would be happy to help properly discard the used products into this program.
