Marriott Vacation Club became Clean the World Foundation’s 
first timeshare partner in 2012. Clean the World recycles 
partially used bars of soap and bottled amenities from resorts 
in the United States and distributes the reconstructed soap 
and hygiene kits to communities that lack access to these 
essential items. Each day, 9,000 children around the world die 
from diseases, such as acute respiratory illness and intestinal 
diseases, that can be prevented by washing with soap. 
Clean the World has a mission to put soap in the hands of 
people who need it most to improve hygiene and sanitation 
conditions, to reduce the impact of disease and to promote 
better hygiene and living conditions worldwide.

In 2016, Marriott Vacation Club resorts in the United States 
have contributed 

12,106 pounds of soap which have been 

recycled at Clean the World’s two recycling facilities in North 
America. As a result, 

64,576 clean bars of soap and hygiene 

kits have been distributed to over 99 countries.
