Carnival To Recycle Soap Through Partnership With Clean The World
Carnival Cruise Line has partnered with Clean the World to launch an initiative where nearly 40 tons of discarded soap will be collected and recycled each year, then distributed to vulnerable communities worldwide.
Clean the World is a global health leader in WASH (water, sanitation, and hygiene) and sustainability dedicated to saving lives by recycling and distributing soap and other hygiene products to more than 127 countries.
Carnival will start collecting discarded soap from guest and crew staterooms throughout the fleet and send it to a Clean the World recycling centre where the soap will be sanitized, melted down and reprocessed.
Together, Carnival and Clean the World will distribute more than 400,000 new, clean bars of soap to people in need across the globe each year. It is one of multiple initiatives underway to further reduce waste disposal and recycle additional products used on board.
Through its partnership with Carnival, Clean the World will be able to expand its existing recycling program to locations throughout the Bahamas, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Bermuda and Central America, providing life-saving hygiene services to residents in these areas as well as further support its WASH programming in the Dominican Republic.
