Clean The World

Shawn Seipler founded Clean the World in 2010. He is presently the CEO & President of the company. He prides himself on advancing humanitarian, social, and environmental causes, and he is committed to excellence and passion, which led to the creation of Clean the World. His social enterprise distributes hygiene products to impoverished people around the world. In a short time, the organization registered nearly 2,500 hotels in North America to partner in an environmentally friendly soap-recycling program. His organization has distributed 18 million bars of soap to children and families across the U.S. and 96 other countries. Each day the significant number of hotels in the U.S. dispose of thousands of bars of soap. The bars of soap each differ in the amount left to cleanse the body. Through his work, and his company, the bars are given a new life through recycling.

Veterans And Clean The World

The company now offers different hygiene kits. One of these is the veteran’s kit designed for those military men and women struggling with homelessness in the U.S. The Department of Housing and Urban Development estimates their number to be at least 37,000, former soldiers, out on the streets on any given night. Their kit is compact enough to be taken with them and consists of a bar of soap, a bottle of shampoo/conditioner, a toothbrush, and toothpaste. The program has partnered with Bombas to supply socks since they are the most requested clothing items and the most expensive item to offer. Bombas supports the homeless community with their pledge of one purchased=one donated. Bombas has already donated 50,000 pairs of socks to Clean the World this summer.

Recycled Products And Clean The World

It is known that the recycled soap saves lives. This is because it helps, in a significant way, to reduce the impact of acute respiratory infection and diarrheal disease. These are two major killers of children under the age of five years. The soap is tested by a state certified testing facility to make sure it is safe. Due to the recycling process, all pathogens are successfully removed from the soap during the process. Aside from soap, Clean the World also recycles plastic amenity bottles from their participating partners. The work Clean the World is doing is impressive: four years ago, the organization made more than 7 million bars of soap and 400,000 hygiene kits. Five hundred thousand soap bars went to help those affected by Hurricane Matthew in Haiti and the Bahamas. The company also recycles half-used shampoo, body wash, and conditioner bottles. These items are closely inspected. The bottles must be 3/4 full, emptier bottles are recycled, and then they are included in the hygiene kits distributed to homeless shelters all over the globe.

Locations Of Clean The World

The company is headquartered in Orlando, Florida. They have offices in London, England, Montreal, Canada, Amsterdam, Netherlands, and the Dominican Republic. The recycling operations centers are in Orlando, Florida, Las Vegas, Nevada, and Sheung Won, Hong Kong. Through the cooperative assistance of the people working at these numerous offices, Clean the World has successfully diverted 16 million pounds of hotel waste from the landfills in North America.

Aside from saving lives, helping to save the environment, and helping people throughout the world, Clean the World is also an important employer offering paid jobs to many people who might otherwise be unemployed.
