Castilla Termal Hoteles changes the life cycle of its soap waste and reuses it in a solidary way
The spa hotel chain has launched a circular economy project, which has created a soap recycling workshop for people with disabilities and a donation plan for the homeless in Valladolid to help them meet their hygiene needs.
Castilla Termal Hoteles reinforces its commitment to the environment and its willingness to be 100% sustainable spa hotels. It launches its circular economy project in which it recovers, recycles and reuses all used soap tablets left by its guests in the rooms in order to reduce waste to 0 kg. In waste management they seek to minimize waste and the circular economy allows them to extend the life cycle of a product, moving from linear use (use and disposal) through the circular (use, recycling, reuse).
For recycling they have the INTRAS Foundation, which aims to help people with disabilities due to serious mental illness to recover their life project, and has created a soap transformation workshop in which four people are employed. In addition, all recycled soaps are being donated to people without resources in Valladolid to help them meet their hygiene needs.
