All of Laguna Beach’s hotel and lodging properties have agreed to recycle hygiene products to benefit children and families in need through Clean the World Global LLC, the Laguna Beach Visitors & Conference Bureau announced this week.
Partners representing 1,200 guest rooms in Laguna will collect and recycle hotel soaps, shampoos, conditioners, lotions and gels to help fight the spread of preventable diseases. Each day 9,000 children worldwide die from diseases that can be prevented by washing with bar soap, the statement says.
“We’re impressed by the efforts of Clean the World and wanted to show our support in a unique way by becoming the first citywide program to embrace its lifesaving mission,” said Judy Bijlani, the Laguna Beach Visitors & Conference Bureau president.
Clean the World has similar partnerships with 1,200 hotel properties. Since its founding in 2009, partners have contributed 70,329 lbs. of soap and 67,844 lbs. of bottled amenities, enough to provide 75,018 children with enough soap for a month and diverted 600 tons of hotel waste from landfills in the U.S. and Canada.
Eighteen hotels with 20 rooms or more and four smaller properties in Laguna have joined the partnership. These include Aliso Creek Inn, Art Hotel, Best Western, Capri Laguna, Carriage House, Casa Laguna Inn, Crescent Bay Inn, Holiday Inn, Hotel Laguna, Inn at Laguna, La Casa del Camino, Laguna Beach Inn, Laguna Cliffs Inn, Laguna Riviera, Montage, Pacific Edge Hotel, Seacliff Laguna Inn, Sunset Cove Villas, Surf & Sand Resort and Spa, The Tides, The Retreat, and Travelodge.
