STEP 1 - Box & Bags
You will need a cardboard box (approx. 50 x 50 x 50cm) and reuse 2 old plastic bags side by side inside the box.
STEP 2 - Collect
When cleaning your rooms, collect your empty/part used toiletries and/or hard soaps - please keep the tops on your bottles.
If you are collecting both toiletries and hard soaps you will need to use one bag for each, as it is important that they be kept separate.
STEP 3 - Weigh & Seal
When your box weighs 15kg securely seal up both bags and then seal the box.
STEP 4 - Arrange Collection
Call 01768 372939 Out of Eden to request your free collection. We will arrange for our carrier to collect your box and deliver it to CleanConscienceTM.
STEP 5 - Credit Added
On receipt by CleanConscienceTM, you will receive £5.00 credit to your account, as a thank you for being part of the scheme. This can be spent on your next Out of Eden order.
In striving to do all we can to keep plastic out of landfill and the oceans, Out of Eden is working in partnership with Maidenhead-based charity and social enterprise CleanConscience to develop a scheme by which the travel-size toiletries you offer – i.e. one of the biggest contributors to single-use plastic waste in the hospitality industry – can be disposed of in a safe and sustainable way. With an astonishing 200 million travel-size toiletries and 70 million hard soaps being wasted each year, we believe it is our responsibility as suppliers to source a solution that is easily accessible for our customers.
Founded in 2015 by Gwen Powell, CleanConscience was born from the growing awareness of the detrimental impact single-use plastic has on the environment, particularly in the hospitality industry. Instead of sending the contents to landfill, CleanConscience offers an alternative, by repurposing, reusing and redistributing the contents and bottles themselves in ways that benefit the wider community tenfold.
The liquid contents are turned into CareKits, sent to those most in need of toiletries, such as women’s shelters and refugee camps. The hard soaps are sent abroad to allow people overseas to generate an income. The plastic lids, bottles, tubes and caps are then incinerated, and the energy is returned back to the grid. With over 14 tonnes of the same polymer required to recycle efficiently, incinerating the contents offers a financially and economically sustainable alternative to recycling or going to landfill. CleanConscience also creates volunteering opportunities for individuals with a variety of special education needs and disabilities.
The scheme gives you, our customers, the opportunity to play your part in minimising the hospitality industry’s huge contribution to plastic pollution, while still offering your guests the travel-size toiletries and soaps they enjoy. As an added benefit and reward for your involvement in the scheme, you will receive a welcome pack containing an official certificate of your membership which you can display in your business, 5 aluminium tent signs to display in your bathrooms to inform your guests of your involvement (extras can be ordered at an additional small fee) as well as licence to use the CleanConscience logo on your website to promote your involvement with such a great cause.
