Wonder What Happens To Your Used Hotel Bar Soap? What Happens Is Amazing

If you’ve ever stayed in a hotel and used the bar soap on the counter or in the shower, you might’ve wondered, “Where does this go when I leave? Does someone else use it? Oh god… Am I using someone else’s soap?”

Not exactly.

According to Thrillist, five diamond properties (to have five stars) replace soap every time someone rents a room, even if they don’t use it. You might wonder how much soap that is, and truthfully, it’s A LOT. It’s estimated to be around 5 million bars a day worldwide.

So what happens to it?

Something pretty noble. An Orlando based company called Clean the World has undertaken the process of collecting soap from hotels, and melting it down. Once the soap is melted down, they make new soap, and send it to impoverished countries!

By doing this the company saves landfill space and perhaps even people’s LIVES.

Around 5,000 hotels participate in the United States, including all of Disney’s properties, most of the Vegas strip, and many others in bigger cities.

So if you want to feel less guilty about wasting your soap, you might not actually be wasting it!
