Did you know that more than 2.3 billion people lack access to basic sanitation?
Due to WASH-related causes (those involving Water, Sanitation, or Hygiene), the leading cause of death for children under five is still hygiene-related illnesses like diarrhea and pneumonia. More children die from WASH-related causes than AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria combined.
These numbers are shocking, but that’s why Clean the World is here to help! As a global social enterprise comprised of two entities, we are working mightily toward a common goal of eliminating these killers, through access to soap and hygiene education programs.
Clean the World collaborates with hotels to recycle their gently used soap and hygiene amenities through our Hospitality Recycling Program. In addition, we offer a corporate social responsibility and team-building program through our Clean the World Hygiene Kit Building Events.
Clean the World Foundation is the vehicle that drives soap distribution and WASH programming to children and families all over the world. Clean the World Foundation delivers the recycled amenities from Clean the World to provide for those in need globally. So far, we have already delivered over 45 million bars of soap across 127 countries.
Clean the World needs your help and support to reach our full potential! In order to successfully combat WASH-related illnesses, action from the global community is imperative. Here’s how you can get involved with Clean the World:
