Partially used products have a way of collecting over time -- cluttering cabinets, countertops and drawers. Although it's always better to use what you have before buying new, if you're looking to switch to all-natural products or have had reactions to products in the past it can be hard. Rather than tossing old soaps in the garbage, you can donate them!
Clean The World is a non-profit organization that combats preventable disease in developing countries by gathering used soap, sanitizing it and redistributing it in other parts of the world. When it's recycled, used soap is kept out of the groundwater and helps stop the spread of disease.
Clean The World works with hotels to get most of its soaps, but it accepts donations from individuals as well. Send soap to:
Clean The World
8026 Sunport Drive, Ste. 306
Orlando, FL, 32809
Clean The World is only accepting donations of bar soap -- no liquid soaps or shampoos -- from individuals at this time.
