Clean the World is the largest global recycler of hotel soaps & bottled amenities, with the aim to prevent both waste & hygiene-related illnesses.

Soap saves lives!

Clean the World is on a two-part mission to reduce the waste created by discarded soap and shampoo products, while helping to prevent millions of deaths caused by hygiene-related illnesses every year.

Since 2009, Clean the World has distributed more than 40 million bars of soap

Clean the World Foundation Inc. is a charitable organisation with the mission of saving millions of lives around the globe. Clean the World leads a global hygiene revolution to distribute recycled soap and hygiene products from more than 5,000 hospitality partners to children and families suffering from high death rates due to the top two killers of children worldwide — acute respiratory infection (pneumonia) and diarrheic diseases such as cholera. 

Since 2009, Clean the World has distributed more than 40 million bars of soap. Through their Hygiene Kit Program launched in late 2012, Clean the World provides soap and hygiene amenities domestically to the homeless and families in transition.

Although people around the world clean their hands with water, very few use soap to wash their hands. Washing hands with soap removes germs much more effectively. Handwashing education and access to soap in schools can help improve attendance.

The most effective way to prevent millions of deaths is simply by handwashing with soap

Clean the World Foundation is working to improve health and eliminate deaths from hygiene-related illnesses. 

The leading causes of death for children around the world are hygiene-related illnesses, which claim nearly 6,000 lives for children under age 5 daily — which is more than AIDS, Malaria, and Tuberculosis combined. 

Fortunately, the most effective way to prevent those deaths is simply handwashing with soap, which can reduce morbidity rates by 50% or more.

Clean the World Foundation is an international development and global health nonprofit operating hygiene-focused emergency relief initiatives, education programs, and microlending projects targeting vulnerable communities in the United States and around the world. 

Since 2009, they have served over 10 million individuals — mostly children and women — across nearly 120 countries worldwide. 

To achieve their mission, they take freshly recycled bars of soap and other hygiene supplies and distribute them in their own outcome-based, ongoing hygiene education programs in schools and maternal health clinics. 

They also distribute the hygiene items as part of emergency relief initiatives targeting disaster victims and refugees. Finally, they provide hygiene supplies and program guidance to other leading global health organisations for use in their own ongoing, outcome-based hygiene programs.
