Clean The World
Clean the World
As part of Bellstar's Stay™ | Green initiative to decrease waste and preserve the planet for future generations, we have adopted the Clean the World Program.
Clean the World is a foundation committed to reducing the waste created by discarded soap and shampoo products while preventing deaths by hygiene-related illnesses around the world. By sending the unused portion of Bellstar's soap, shampoo, conditioner and lotion products to Clean the World's recycling facilities, we are decreasing the waste in our landfills and helping improve the quality of life for those in homeless shelters and impoverished countries worldwide.
Each Bellstar resort has been provided with the necessary tools to implement this program and is committed to improve the environment and quality of life one step at a time.
