Clean the World, a leader in global health dedicated to water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) and global sustainability, announces a new partnership with AKA, a global leader in luxury hotel residences. This marks Clean the World’s first partnership with a luxury hotel residence brand concept like AKA. With upwards of 1,187 rooms and 12 properties worldwide, AKA will provide those in need with over 15,000 recycled bars of soap while diverting close to 5,000 pounds of waste from landfills annually.

“AKA is dedicated to supporting our global environment and giving back to those in need,” said Larry Korman, President of AKA. “AKA has a brand-wide commitment to charitable initiatives and this program will expand our sustainability efforts. We have immense respect for Clean the World’s mission and are honored to partner with them on this vital cause.”

AKA will also be encouraging its residents to leave behind their own plastics and bath products, to be recycled and donated to the Clean the World cause.

“Partnering with AKA allows us to further our mission to put life-saving hygiene products in the hands of people who need them most,” says Shawn Seipler, founder and chief executive officer, Clean the World.
