LAS VEGAS — Unused soaps, shampoos, conditioners and lotions from some Las Vegas resorts are being used to combat diseases caused by inadequate hygiene across the globe.

Harrah's Entertainment Inc. says it is working with an Orlando charity that collects beauty products left behind by hotel guests and then distributes them to impoverished families in the United States and more than 30 countries.

The organization, Clean the World, says it has collected more than a ton of soap in recent months from five Harrah's resorts: Paris Las Vegas, Bally's Las Vegas, Harrah's Las Vegas, Imperial Palace and Caesars Palace.

The charity is also developing a soap recycling facility in Las Vegas with a $100,000 donation from the company.
