In 2018, Hacienda Del Sol (along with many other Preferred Hotels) signed on with a global health organization, Clean The World. Recognizing the need to help those in need across the globe, Clean The World aims to provide resources, programming and education focused on water, sanitation and hygiene. This organization has many programs making a positive impact throughout the world including its hotel recycling program.
Have you ever wondered what happens to the bar of soap and the shampoo products you use after staying at a hotel?
At Hacienda Del Sol, you can rest assured knowing these leftover products are sanitized and recycled through Clean The World and then given to those in need.
Used bars of soap are cut up, meticulously sanitized through a state-certified testing facility and re-made into new bars of soap that will be sent to millions of people across the globe to prevent hygiene-related illnesses and deaths. Shampoos, conditioners, lotions, body washes and their bottles are recycled and made into hygiene kits to be distributed in places of need.

Since 2009, Clean The World has distributed more than 46 million bars of sanitized soaps in 127 different countries!
