Hotel soap that would normally get pitched is now getting a new purpose.

Clean the World partners with hotels to collect, recycle and then give the soap to those who can't access or afford it.

Soap can help prevent diseases and reduce child deaths.

With the help of partners, the organization works to teach people in developing countries the benefits of good hygiene.

But beyond just helping those in developing countries, recycling soap means way less is in landfills.

In about seven years, Clean the World stopped 4,300 tons of hotel waste from heading to landfills.

There are over 200,000 hotels in the world. Clean the World has 4,000 hotel partners.
