Bars of SoapNon-profit offers recycled soap made in Las Vegas. Clean the World, a non-profit organization operating in Las Vegas, and with the aid of a $1 million grant from the Sands Corporation, is collecting used soap from Las Vegas hotel rooms and reprocessing them for further use. Using a method to clean the used bars, then grinding and pressing them into new bars with the “Clean the World” logo on them, the local facility has the capacity to produce about 20,000 reprocessed soap bars a day. In Las Vegas, soap is collected from about 37,000 rooms, and from over 450,000 rooms worldwide. The non-profit products help fight hygiene-related diseases around the world. Three local non-profits benefit from hygiene kits from Clean the World.
