I recently got an email from LimoLiner, offering a discount coupon on its luxury bus service. Too bad I can’t use it.
I really liked the LimoLiner when I rode it from Hartford to Boston last August, so I was eager to find a use for the coupon. But when I went on the LimoLiner Web site I discovered that the company ended its Hartford service last November.
There’s some buzz gathering around an operation called Clean the World that collects leftover soap and shampoo from hotels and reprocesses them.
The recycled soap products are distributed to homeless shelters in the United States and to needy people in poor countries, where soap can save lives by halting the spread of infectious diseases.
You can help by sending leftover soap products you’ve accumulated, donating money and asking hotels to participate in the recycling program. The Clean the World Web site has more details.

Are you looking for more leg room next time you buy an airline ticket? United is having a sale on its economy plus seats, which provide up to 5 more inches of leg room than the bone-crushing 31-inch seats at the back of coach.
The discount isn’t that impressive. The charge ordinarily runs from $9 to $109 and has been discounted to between $5 and $98, depending on the length of the trip.
If you want it, hurry up. The sale ends today at 6 p.m. (EDT).
KLM Royal Dutch Airlines is testing the sale of upgraded meals to passengers in coach who don’t want the standard airline economy-class food. Passengers will be able to choose one of four specialty meals when they check in online and pay for it with a credit card, the airline announced.
