The worldwide Coronavirus pandemic has provoked some of the largest shutdowns our communities have ever seen. Social distancing is in full effect and the importance of proper hygiene is at the forefront of everyone’s minds. Alarm over Coronavirus has caused a run on essential goods including hand-sanitizer making hygiene products exceedingly hard to come by. The impact of this is felt throughout our communities but, especially by those most at risk within them. While using hand sanitizer is a smart way to slow and prevent the spread of viruses, washing your hands thoroughly with soap and water is more effective.

Help Your Community

As a company dedicated to providing the tools that bring groups together and helping group leaders like you better organize your events, GroupTools wants to help you, your group members, and your communities stay safe. So, we would like to introduce you to a company that knows that #SoapSavesLives. Clean the World is on a mission to prevent millions of hygiene-related deaths each year and reduce the morbidity rate for hygiene-related illnesses. 

By working together, GroupTools and Clean the World can help you bring much needed hygiene items into your community during these trying times. Hosting a Hygiene Kit Event is the ideal way to bring that mission home to your community. Clean the World Hygiene Kits contain recycled hygiene products that are diverted from landfills and benefit people in need, providing the gift of good health to a local homeless shelter or aid group. Each Standard Hygiene Kit comes packaged in a reusable bag and includes: a bar of recycled soap, bottles of shampoo, conditioner and lotion, a disposable razor, toothbrush and toothpaste, washcloth and an inspirational notecard. Watch the quick video below to learn more about Hygiene Kit Events.

About Clean the World

In 2009, Shawn Seipler started Clean the World in a one-car garage in Orlando, Fla. As a vice president for a technology company, Seipler spent about 150 nights a year in hotel rooms. He began to wonder what happened to all those little bars of soap after he checked out of a hotel. He found out they were simply thrown away. After learning that hand washing with soap could potentially prevent the deaths of millions every year – Seipler launched Clean the World to recycle soap and save lives. Clean the World has become the largest global recycler of hotel amenities with more than 8,000 hotel and resort partners, and 500 event partners, throughout North America. Since 2009, Clean the World has distributed more than 54 million bars of soap to children and families in 127 countries worldwide, while fulfilling an environmental mission by diverting 20 million pounds of hotel waste from polluting landfills in North America.

Clean the World is graciously supported by contributions from individuals and organizations so, not only will your group be doing good in your local communities through your participation in a Hygiene Kit event but, you’ll also be supporting the foundation and their work in other communities as well.
