Clean the World
The Morrison Dublin, is working with social enterprise, Clean the World, with the mission of saving millions of lives around the world. With hotels generating large volumes of solid waste, we collect discarded soap and bottled amenities such as shampoo, conditioner, location and body wash. All soap is recycled into new bars and all bottles are now either recycled or converted to energy. Through the distribution of these and other donated hygiene products to impoverished people, we are helping Clean The World help prevent millions of hygiene related illnesses and deaths each year.
Please ask a member of the team if you have any questions or feedback on the hotels ‘green journey’ and to find out all about how you can get involved.’
