Clean the World was founded in 2009 by Shawn Seipler. The idea for soap recycling came about after Shawn learned the barely used bars of hotel soap he left behind each morning ended up in a landfill.
Clean the World has a two-part mission:
Collect and recycle soap and hygiene products discarded every day by the hospitality industry and other sectors that generate environmental waste.
Through the distribution of these and other donated products to impoverished people, prevent millions of hygiene-related deaths each year, reduce the morbidity rate for hygiene-related illnesses, and encourage vigorous childhood development.
