Carnival Cruise Line announced it will begin recycling the remnants of soaps left behind by passengers and crew due to a newly-formed partnership.
Guests will not be asked to use recycled soap. The discarded remnants from staterooms throughout the Carnival fleet will be taken to a center where they'll be sanitized, melted down and reprocessed. The newly-formed bars are due to be distributed to vulnerable communities all over the world.
This comes about as a result of the cruise line’s partnership with Clean The World organization which is dedicated to saving lives via recycling and distributing soap and other hygiene products to more than 127 countries.
Due to the new partnership, Clean The World is able to expand the existing recycling program in locations including the Bahamas, Bermuda, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and Central America.
Carnival also announced plans to drastically reduce the use of plastics across the fleet. The plan is for massive cuts in the company’s consumption of “non-essential plastics” by the end of 2021.
