The Ritz London was awarded Gold by Green Tourism in recognition of our commitment to sustainable hospitality. Our partnership with CleanConscience has enabled us to recycle all party used guest soap and toiletries from The Ritz London, which otherwise would go to landfill. With the assistance of mainly disabled volunteers they then reprocess the soap and toiletries and donate it to charities in the UK and humanitarian aid agencies working in third world countries for them to distribute to people in need.
In the first month of introducing this scheme at The Ritz London our Housekeeping team led by Adriana Milea embraced the project and managed to fill 14 crates; it is straightforward. Gwen and the professional team from CleanConscience understand in detail the demands of hotel operations and make it very easy for hoteliers to recycle soap and toiletries in a hygienic and professional manner with complete transparency.
