Hi there! Just a quick note to keep you up to date on a new endeavor we are getting involved with here at The Shoreham Inn. The Global Soap Project is an organization “working to save lives and improve global health by recycling used hotel soap and turning it into new bars that are distributed to vulnerable populations around the world.” How cool is that? So we have signed up and will be sending off all our used bars of Vermont Soapworks soap to this project.
For those of you who have never stayed here – we do try and keep things as green as possible and minimize waste for products like this. In our showers we use large dispensers for liquid soap, shampoo and conditioner. We also have liquid hand soaps on all the sinks. We do however provide a small bar of organic soap for all guests, in part because some people really prefer a bar of soap and also so we can highlight the great products made by Middlebury’s own Vermont Soapworks.
Now, admittedly, The Shoreham Inn’s use of bar soap is teeny tiny compared to big chain hotels, so we won’t be providing much, but it feel so much better than throwing away those mini bars of soap after one customer use. And every little moment counts, right?!
