Clean the World Recycling Campaign with Shawn Seipler
We have a special interview with Shawn Seipler, CEO of Clean the World, the world’s largest non-profit organization that collects discarded soap and shampoo from the hotel industry to help those in need. In fact, they have already distributed over 44 million bars of soap to the poor in 127 different countries and preventing the spread of illness. With an on-going relationship Clean the World works closely with the All Suites brands by Hilton for this joint effort to save millions of lives by recycling hotel soap and amenities that are then distributed to the poor to prevent hygiene-related deaths.
Seipler joins us to discuss this unique partnership with Hilton and share some important lessons about conservation including statistics from public polls. We’re proud to offer this timely interview celebrating a wonderful example of corporate social responsibility and the success of Clean the World!

Diarrhea is most deadly in the poorest places in the world with almost 60% of deaths due to diarrhea worldwide are attributed to unsafe drinking water and poor hygiene and sanitation.
