Several Hilton™ brands recycle soap bars their guests left behind. The collected soaps and amenity bottles are contributed to the Clean World Challenge of Clean the World, a global health initiative dedicated to sustainability, water, sanitation and health.


To recycle the soap they are crushed, sanitised and cut into new bars. Amenity bottles are either recycled or repurposed for hygiene kits. Clean the World distributes them to communities in need, aiming to prevent diseases from spreading. Along with the recycling scheme Hilton committed to sending not one single soap to landfill anymore. Hotel owners and team members of Hilton Garden Inn, Hampton by Hilton and all Suits brands in the US, Canada, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic are encouraged to collect all used soap bars, to contribute 1 Mio bars of new soap until Global Handwashing Day in October.
