World Vision Loads First Truck with Soap from Soap Press

How’s this for an immediate return on investment?

The Clean the World soap press is already providing dividends in the form of soap to be delivered in communities overseas.

World Vision, one of Clean the World’s largest non-governmental organization (NGO) distribution partners, sent a truck to Clean the World headquarters in Orlando on Oct. 18, to pick up freshly recycled soap bars. And there was plenty to pick up when they arrived.

The truck was filled with 20 pallets of soaps – an estimated 103,680 bars of soap – that will soon find its way into the hands of children and families in need.

World Vision has field offices in countries all around the world. Soaps provided by Clean the World are distributed as part of hygiene kits in communities where soaps are in short supply, and often where regular hand washing with soap can mean the difference between life and death. Click here for a list of countries where Clean the World and World Vision have partnered to distribute soaps.

This first pickup of freshly pressed soaps from Clean the World represents the beginning of bi-monthly pickups for World Vision. Two truckloads of soap each month will be processed, packaged, picked up and placed in communities of greatest need.

And World Vision is not the only partner distributing soaps from Clean the World. A new partnership with Children International kicks off in late October with a similar arrangement. Two trucks each month will be filled with Clean the World soaps and included in Children International deliveries to Asia, with a specific emphasis on communities in Philippines.

Harvest Time International makes regular monthly pickups of bottled amenities for distribution to foreign countries and also to domestic homeless shelters and missions.

Clean the World works with a number of NGO partners to distribute soaps and bottled amenities, and we’re always looking for more. If you know of or work for an organization that would like to distribute hygiene items from Clean the World, please contact Rosanna Kingston (rkingston@cleantheworld.org) to work out the arrangements.
