Clean the World today formed the first benefit corporation, or “B Corp,” created under Florida’s new benefit corporation law. This law, just signed by Gov. Rick Scott and effective today, allows for a new type of company that uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems.
Clean the World’s social enterprise structure now includes a B-Corp that provides business services to Clean the World Foundation, a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization focused on eradicating two of the top killers of children worldwide: pneumonia and diarrheal disease. Clean the World serves that mission by collecting, recycling and distributing soap and other hygiene products discarded by the global hospitality industry.
