Clean the World

How Clean the World is CHANGING the World

Pneumonia and diarrheal disease are two of the leading causes of death among children under 5 years old. According to the World Health Organization, millions of young lives could be saved with access to bar soap and hygiene education. More than 2 million bars of partially used hotel soap are thrown away every day in the United States. By recycling soap and other discarded hygiene products, Clean the World saves lives with items that traditionally end up in landfills.
