Clean the World accepts liquid and bar soap, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, and lotions. They are cleaned and and made into new bars or other products which are distributed to homeless shelters and impoverished countries. Plastic containers are recycled.
Individuals can donate by organizing a soap drive and only need to pay for shipping. Bed-and-breakfasts can also ship soap along with an annual fee.
The hotel program provides bins which are picked up weekly, which is included in the annual per-room fee ($1 in Canada, less for most of the USA).
