Meet the Stars of the show

Meet Shawn Seipler,
Founder & CEO of Clean the World

"What happens to the little bars of soap I leave behind when I checkout of my hotel room?" Fourteen years ago, at the edge of his hotel bed, Shawn Seipler asked that very question, and the answer led him down a path that has since saved tens of thousands of lives all over the world. Founded in a one-car garage in Orlando, Florida, Clean the World is a social enterprise dedicated to WASH (water, sanitation, and hygiene) and sustainability. Operating in Orlando, Las Vegas, London, Montreal, Hong Kong, Amsterdam, London, and Punta Cana, Clean the World leads a “Global Hygiene Revolution” by working with more than 8,100 hospitality partners to recycle hygiene products and provide these vital supplies to people in need in over 127 countries. Since inception, the organization has distributed over 73 million bars of soap and 5 million hygiene kits, and diverted over 23 million pounds of waste from landfills around the world.
