Your Sustainability Goals In Mind
Clean the World’s Hospitality Recycling Program now reports your impact with the UN’s Sustainability Goals in mind. So what does this mean for you? Well, it means that when you recycle, we now track how your impact contributes to these goals and how it creates a more sustainable future – putting you in the driver’s seat of how you want to report your impact to key stakeholders and customers.
Recycling Program Overview
Clean the World partners with 8,100+ hotels worldwide to recycle discarded soap and bottled amenities. By sending your used soap and plastic bottled amenities including large format bottles to us, you’re preventing millions of pounds of waste from ending up in landfill while helping to provide vulnerable communities worldwide access to hygiene necessities and WASH programming.
How the Hospitality Soap Recycling Program Works
Our Hospitality Partners
We help our hospitality partners save lives while keeping our planet safe. By adopting our program, our partners enhance their brand and sustainability efforts by serving as the backbone of our mission to save lives around the world while reducing landfill waste.
Management Company Partners
Clean the World provides hospitality management companies with programs that weave corporate social responsibility, sustainability, and charitable giving practices into their company culture. We collaborate with these partners to help them share and showcase the story of how they enable Clean the World to save lives, reduce waste, and protect the planet.
Our generous corporate partners support Clean the World in various ways, including direct cash donations, gifts in kind, grants, logistical support, brand awareness, and messaging.
We are grateful for everything these partners do to advance the global hygiene revolution.
Our Association Partners
Industry organizations and other groups help Clean the World by spreading the message about our mission through their networks. We are grateful to the partners shown below for everything they do to support the global hygiene revolution.
Meeting and Event Planner Partners
Professional meeting planners face the challenge of adding a corporate social responsibility component to help companies meet CSR and sustainability goals.
Clean the World’s Meeting Planner Program helps achieve those goals by recycling the hotel soap and bottled amenities discarded by attendees. You also have the option of adding a Hygiene Kit Event, at which attendees assemble hygiene kits for a local homeless shelter or support group.
Delivering Impact Just Got Easier!
Clean the World’s Customer Portal offers a unique opportunity for you to engage in socially responsible programs that deliver direct impact, including soap distribution, hygiene education, emergency response, hygiene packaging events, and waste diversion.
The Customer Portal provides real-time updates on your Impact dashboard. As soon as Clean the World receives your full box, our team scans the box and uploads the impact totals to the portal.
Impact at Your Fingertips
Comprehensive Reporting for Hospitality Recycling Partners
As the hospitality industry shifts its focus to sustainable travel, it’s becoming more important for partners to track their individual impact and how they contribute to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Clean the World’s impact reporting provides hospitality partners advanced insights on their sustainability contributions. At any given moment, a Clean the World partner can review, track, and observe the impact they’re contributing to the environment and the lives of people in need. Most importantly, they can share that information with key stakeholders.

Please note: Each box should have a different tracking number. UPS will not pickup boxes with the same tracking number.
If you have a regularly scheduled UPS service, simply add the boxes to this pickup (make sure the boxes are labeled and ready for pick-up to avoid delays). If you need to schedule a UPS pickup, please schedule through the customer portal (portal.cleantheworld.org). Click or tap on the orange “Schedule Pickup” button, confirm your address, and choose a pickup date from the calendar.
Please note: pickups can only be scheduled for three business days or more in the future. If you have any issues with your pickup, please email email@example.com. Our team can work with UPS to ensure your pickup is successful.
Now, you can receive impact totals right from your customer portal. On the Impact Screen, you can get real-time feedback on how much soap you have collected, how many pounds of waste you’ve collected, how many bars of soap you have distributed, and historical totals.
First, please make sure your box is taped securely. We suggest you use two layers and tape all the way down the sides. Then, attach your shipping label on the top of the box with packing tape. You can also request clear shipping envelopes from UPS which protects your label.
