Hotel soaps always get thrown out every day, even unused ones! This a requirement for hotels to be positioned with a highly regarded rating of five diamonds. Although so many people endure and lose their lives from diseases due to the lack of proper sanitation, hotels simply chuck many bars of detergent out, triggering a huge wastage!
But one man, Shawn Siepler came up with a brilliant idea to solve this huge problem! He set up his own company, Clean The World (CTW) to recycle hotel soaps and donate them to needy countries.

Leading hotels also help to recycle body wash, shampoo and conditioners too!
Volunteers check the bottles if they are three quarters full and throwing out empty ones.
