Hotel Laguna in Orange County is trying to help children in impoverished countries.

The hotel is participating in a worldwide program to collect used hotel soap, lotion, conditioners and shampoo.

The items will then be shipped to a charitable organization in Florida called, Clean the World.

The non-profit then recycles the items and distributes them to children and families worldwide.

The goal is to reduce landfill waste and prevent hygiene-related illnesses and death among children.
