The world-famous hotel chain is set to donate over $1.3 million to help fund a project that saves up to 2.6 million used soap bars per day.

Worldwide hotel chain Hilton Worldwide has partnered with the Global Soap Project, a non-profit organization that  recovers and recycles soap, in a promising initiative that can potentially save up to  2.6 million partially used bars of soap from being dumped into landfills every day.

Global Soap gathers and remolds used soap into new bars and distributes them to vulnerable populations in developing countries who are at risk of sanitation and hygiene-related disease. To support the Global Soap Project, Hilton Worldwide will collect and donate used soap bars and donate $1.3 million over a three-year period. Through this, Hilton foresees an initial donation of one million new 4-ounce bars of soap.
