How it all started...

In 2009, after countless nights spent in hotel rooms for work, Shawn Seipler stumbled upon a simple yet transformative question: “What happens to leftover soap in hotel rooms?” Little did he know that this question would catalyze the birth of Clean the World, now a global leader in sustainable environmental and social impact solutions, transforming used soap bars and plastic amenities that the hospitality industry would otherwise discard into lifesaving, essential supplies for communities in need across the globe.

Shocked by the revelation that the hospitality industry was discarding millions of usable soap bars each year, Shawn, driven by a deep sense of responsibility, embarked on a remarkable journey. With the unwavering support of his devoted family members, he transformed a one-car garage in Orlando, Florida, into the epicenter of soap recycling, setting in motion a movement that would change lives and communities around the world.

About Clean the World

Clean the World’s purpose to make the world a better place is brought to life in part via its Global Recycling Program, which consists of diverting soap bars and plastic amenities (which the hospitality industry would otherwise discard) from landfills and transforming the soap into lifesaving, essential supplies for communities in need across the globe.  Since it was established in 2009, Clean the World has diverted 8.1 million lbs. of plastic amenity bottles and over 25.5 million lbs. of total waste from landfills, and distributed over 82.6 million bars of soap to global NGOs, such as The WASH Foundation, an evolution of Clean the World Foundation, to support worldwide communities vulnerable to hygiene-related illnesses.

Clean the World’s soap recycling and manufacturing multi-step process includes rigorous testing by the Biological Consulting Services Laboratory. The used bars of soap are ground into pellets and finely refined to eliminate any foreign particles; then, they are sterilized, refined again, and manufactured into brand-new bars of soap.

Collected plastic amenity bottles are diverted from landfills and can be recycled by being processed into flakes that can be used to manufacture new products, hence providing a sustainable circular solution to these single-use plastic products.
