As an environmentally-friendly hospitality management company, Greystone Hotels is dedicated to following eco-friendly business practices. As part of this mission, we partnered with Clean the World, in 2013 to further enhance these efforts. Clean the World is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to reduce the waste created by discarded soap and shampoo products and also reduce illnesses that could be prevented with supplies such as soap and shampoo. Clean the World works with hotels like those of Greystone, to collect soaps, shampoos, and other bath amenities that are normally thrown out by hotels. After sorting and processing these soaps and hygiene products, they distribute them to domestic homeless shelters as well as impoverished countries.
We're pleased to share that since partnering with Clean the World, our boutique hotels and inns along the West Coast combined have collected 5,065 pounds of waste, distributed 15,423 bars of soap, recycled 1,630 pounds of plastic, and provided 4,347 plastic bottles to the organization's ONE Project. We look forward to continuing our commitment to €œgreen€ hospitality methods and further supporting Clean the World's Global Hygiene Revolution.
