Clean The World: Recycling Soap to Save Lives with Shawn Seipler
Clean the World Foundation Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, tax-exempt charitable organization committed to reducing the waste created by discarded soap and shampoo products and preventing the millions of deaths caused by hygiene-related illnesses around the world. Clean the World was founded in February 2009 by Shawn Seipler and Paul Till and is based in Orlando, FL.
Clean the World accomplishes its mission by collecting, recycling, and distributing discarded soaps, shampoos, conditioners, and lotions and gels from participating hospitality partners. Clean the World recycles guest room hygiene items at its Recycling Operations Center (ROC) and distributes them for humanitarian purposes with partnering nonprofit organizations. The items are distributed domestically and to children and families in communities around the globe.
Hand washing with soap significantly reduces the impact of two fatal diseases: acute respiratory infection and diarrheal disease. These are the top two killers of children less than 5-years-old, and represent an opportunity for recycled soap to become the primary ingredient in Clean the World’s global hygiene revolution.
Since inception, Clean the World has eliminated more than 1.4 million lbs. (700 tons) of hotel waste from polluting local landfills.
Shawn Seipler is Executive Director and co-Founder of Clean the World. As a social entrepreneur, Shawn is committed to focusing his business, management and leadership skills on advancing humanitarian causes through philanthropic efforts. As the Executive Director of Clean the World, he has poised the charity that he co-founded on a mission to reduce the millions of deaths worldwide caused by lack of hygiene.
