Clean the World serves international communities in addition to vulnerable populations all across the United States. Clean the World's Orlando and Las Vegas locations operate local hygiene education programs in schools, provide hygiene supplies to local homeless shelters and food pantries, and respond to emergency and disaster relief situations.
Founded in 2009, Clean the World partners with 5,000 hotels and resorts to collect partially used bars of soap and discarded plastic amenity bottles that are then sanitized, recycled, and redistributed to children and families in desperate need of proper hygiene.

Leading a “Global Hygiene Revolution,” Clean the World aims to protect the environment through sustainable hotel recycling programs and save lives by delivering recycled soap, hygiene products, and hygiene education to children and families around the world.
