The Ritz London

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.

The Red Carnation Hotel Collection

Sustainability is a key issue for every one of Red Carnation Hotels’ properties and the company as a whole is thoroughly committed to making a positive impact on the environment, which is why its collaboration with CleanConscience is a natural partnership. A UK-based charity, CleanConscience ingeniously recycles and repurposes half-used hotel soaps and toiletries for those in need of access to hygiene products.

The Dorchester and 45 Park Lane

The Dorchester Collection encourages and supports its employees to suggest innovative ideas for continuous improvement. Consequently, I was confident in introducing the concept of CleanConscience to my managers, supervisors, and co-workers. Each member of The Dorchester Graduate Programme has the opportunity to see how various departments operate and are encouraged to raise ideas for improvement. By coincidence, I came across the CleanConscience website and was taken by the idea of converting used soaps and toiletries into a meaningful, sustainable product that will help people in need as well as protect the environment. Throughout the process, The Dorchester has been very supportive and it has been a pleasure working with Gwen.

 It takes so little to make a difference!

Brown’s Hotel, Mayfair

We are pleased to be working with CleanConscience, the first and only organisation in the UK who collect the partially used or damaged soap and bottled toiletries every month to recover them for future use. The turnkey solution works well, and we have 8 green recycling crates full of discarded product collected monthly. Brown’s Hotel is very proud to be the front runners in this sustainability project.

The Doyle Collection

The Bloomsbury is joining the likes of Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle and Sandringham Estate in a new soap and toiletry recycling initiative. The programme targets needless waste by collecting partly-used soap and bathroom miniatures and revitalising them, then donating them to charities which distribute the soap to places where something as simple as washing hands often prevents fatal diseases.

When considering the Programme Fee, remember to take into account the resulting cost saving on your waste removal – at least 50% of the fee payable.

Add to this the PR opportunities of informing your guests, and other stakeholders, about your environmentally sustainable and socially responsible initiative, as well as the subsequent charitable outcome for the humanitarian causes you will be supporting, and I think you will agree that there is significantly more to this project than the ‘cost’ factor.
