For more than 20 years its flagship program, the Green Key Eco-Rating Program, has been evaluating, inspecting, and certifying lodging properties based on their commitment to sustainable operations.

CLEAN THE WORLD

Clean the World Canada is a social enterprise that collects and recycles discarded soap and bottled amenities (shampoo, conditioner, lotion, gels) from hotel partners in Canada, USA, Hong Kong and Macau, China. The recycled soap is placed in hygiene kits, which are donated to homeless shelters, senior citizens, and struggling families in Canada and the United States. Soap also is distributed around the world in areas where there is a high risk of hygiene-related illness.
