Opening Day: Las Vegas Recycling Operations Center


Paul Till and Debi Kinney from Clean the World
Clean the World was founded three years ago with a simple mission: To recycle soap and save lives. And our mission is as simple and essential today as it was in the beginning.

More than 9,000 children die each day from hygiene-related illnesses around the world. That’s 3.5 million lives lost per year.

According to medical research studies by UNICEF and the World Health Organization, more than 60 percent of these deaths can be prevented by regular hand washing with bar soap. It’s a challenge worth accepting to save these lives while there is still time, and with the hygiene resources we have in abundance. Clean the World was founded to meet that challenge and stop this needless loss of life.

And it all starts with a simple bar of soap…
Think about the hospitality industry for a moment. 4.6 million hotel rooms in the United States and 16 million hotel rooms globally. Hotels and resorts in the United States alone throw away more than one million bars of soap each day, an estimated 4 million discarded daily across the globe. And that’s a conservative estimate. By throwing away the soap, we add to our growing problem of landfill waste – that’s another big concern.


Clean the World’s solution is simple. Rather than throw away these guest room amenities – and add to our planet’s growing sanitation problems – Clean the World recycles these soaps and places them in the hands of children to help stop the spread of fatal disease. In just three years we have helped divert more than 1.4 million pounds of hotel waste from local landfills. And we couldn’t do it without your passion and support.

More than 20 of our hospitality partners are located in Nevada, with a large concentration located within the Las Vegas city limits. As more people come to Las Vegas for work and play, let’s make it our shared mission to extend the life of the amenities they use to help save lives at home and abroad.
