Hilton Kuching’s Recycling Project collaboration with Hope Place was recently awarded gold at the 10th Premier of Sarawak Environmental Award (PEA) in the Medium Enterprise Category.
The award was previously known as the Chief Minister’s Environmental Award.
According to the information we received, the Premier of Sarawak Environmental Award is a biennially award that becomes an avenue for industries, businesses, local authorities, eateries and food outlets and individuals to demonstrate their corporate environmental responsibility in showcasing their organizational green initiatives in reducing carbon footprints in their production processes and operations.
Hilton Kuching’s Recycling Project, which is also known as ‘Solution for Life’ focuses on recycling used soap from Hilton Kuching, which are then cleaned with chemical solution, cooked, naturally scented with flowers and herbs, repacked and distributed to the under privileged communities or sold.
Proceeds of the sale are contributed back to the 190 families under the care of Hope Place.
The hotel also is involved in plastic bottles recycling as well as linen donation.
In addition to that, the Hilton Kuching’s soap recycling project is part of Hilton’s Travel with Purpose 2030 goal towards doubling investment in social impact and cutting its environmental footprint through responsible hospitality.
