Shawn Seipler, Founder of CEO, Clean the World Global

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 humble 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.

Fast forward to today, Clean the World Global has diverted over 25 million pounds of waste from landfills, donated over 80 million bars of recycled soap to global NGOs, such as The WASH Foundation and distributed more than 5 million hygiene kits to individuals in need.

Under Shawn’s leadership, Clean the World has grown to become more than a singular flagship brand. It has expanded into Clean the World Global, comprising of Clean the World and CTW Events, a social enterprise providing global impact team-building experiences with a social purpose.

Shawn possesses a unique skill set, enabling him to see individuals for who they are and help them reach their potential. “I’ve always had this desire to help the less fortunate, to elevate those in need, and to witness the happiness of others,” he reflects. This perspective has shaped Shawn’s personal and professional journey, including his role as the CEO and founder of Clean the World.

Shawn’s profound sense of empathy and resolve laid the foundation for Clean the World Global to become what it is today- a global enterprise with the purpose of making the world a better place. Through Shawn’s leadership, Clean the World Global will continue to improve the lives of underserved populations and the environment for generations to come.
