Las Vegas Sands Corporation Partners with Clean the World

Apr 15, 2014

Las Vegas Sands Corporation (LVS) has partnered with international nonprofit organization Clean the World.

Clean the World collects and recycles discarded hygiene products from hospitality companies and distributes them to those who are at risk for life-threatening, hygiene-related diseases, such as pneumonia, cholera, and dysentery in more than 70 countries.

By contributing $1 million to Clean the World, LVS will increase the organization’s impact both in the U.S. and internationally. Underwriters and team volunteers from LVS will help build thousands of hygiene kits, which will be distributed to homeless shelters and resource centers where LVS operates. The company will also help build 100,000 hygiene kits for disaster relief efforts around the world.  

In addition, LVS will host a series of soap distribution trips, in which its team members will help Clean the World distribute soap while providing hygiene education. Finally, LVS’ financial commitment will provide manufacturing equipment in Las Vegas and Asia, allowing Clean the World to double its annual global production and distribution to more than 6.5 million bars of soap.

“This partnership is monumental for our mission to propel the global hygiene revolution,” says Shawn Seipler, co-founder and executive director of Clean the World. “LVS’ willingness to step beyond the normal product recycling partnership shows a deep commitment to this cause. It’s a win-win for reducing impact on the environment while helping homeless and impoverished populations, as well as disaster victims, gain access to simple products that can make a big impact on their lives.”

LVS’ extended partnership with Clean the World will accelerate the organization’s mission to turn waste into life-saving hygiene products.  Since 2011, Clean the World and LVS have diverted more than 52 tons of waste from LVS properties, resulting in the donation of more than 367,000 bars of recycled soap to needy populations.
