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.
