Hotels, especially large, high-end hotels, use a huge amount of linens and towels. When these become worn, they are often thrown out. To reduce its environmental impact, one hotel chain has come up with a way to turn worn hotel bed linens into useful items. Westin Hotels & Resorts has launched Project Rise: ThreadForward – a sustainability program that collects and reweaves hotel bed linens. The textiles are transformed into children’s pyjamas, which will be distributed to children in need around the world.
