TOILETRY RECYCLING

Left-over soap, hygiene products, linens and lost and found items that would otherwise be discarded from guest rooms are donated to the Soap for Hope Canada, which processes and distributes amenities to community facilities serving vulnerable individuals throughout Canada and impoverished nations around the globe. The Lodge is proudly active as a caring community partner. In 2021 alone, Soap for Hope distributed over 16,000 Hygiene kits and over 342,000 essential hygiene products and linens.
