To take an extra step in their eco-responsible approach, Hotel Crillon le Brave and all the hotels in the Maisons Pariente collection have become partners of the Unisoap charity, whose goal is to recycle hotel soaps for humanitarian purposes.

Being eco-friendly...

This initiative is in line with the eco-responsible approach of Maisons Pariente. Recycling little-used soaps not only reduces waste but also gives them a second life. Since bars of soap last longer than the average length of stay at Hotel Crillon le Brave, most of our guests do not use the entire bar of soap in their room and do not leave with it.  By partnering with Unisoap, Hotel Crillon le Brave is giving these bars of soap the opportunity to be upgraded.

... and socially responsible

In addition to the environmental dimension, this approach is also a social and humanitarian one.  Indeed, after having been collected, the soaps are recycled within a vocational rehabilitation center for disabled workers. The entire recycling process is carried out by disabled workers, thus creating jobs for them. Cosmetic experts accompany Unisoap and these workers to ensure the compliance of the new bars of soap with cosmetic hygiene standards.   

Once recycled, the new soaps are donated to local and international associations and NGOs to provide underprivileged communities in France and around the world with access to hygiene.  It is estimated that 3 million French people do not have access to basic hygiene products. (source: Unisoap:

Unisoap also conducts education and awareness activities in schools and hospitals to promote hygiene. Indeed, hand washing can reduce the spread of disease by 50%.
