Taking home your hotel room’s complementary bath toiletries can now be a good thing to do. Thanks to Shawn Seipler’s creative charity Clean the World, it is possible to donate these items to help people without sanitary facilities in over a hundred impoverished countries. Hotels routinely discard the bath toiletries that are not taken away by hotel guests. Clean the World redistributes the donations from recycling centers in Orlando, Vegas, Montreal and Hong Kong. Over 300 hotels now participate.
