Anyway, I had kind of forgotten about Clean the World until I was at The Body Shop to use a Groupon (went during a sale and cleaned up!) and while I was talking to the sales clerks I suddenly remembered Clean the World. They were excited and intrigued by the idea and maybe The Body Shop will partner with Clean the World. Hey, maybe I should write them a letter. I am kind of curious about if they would support this type of effort. Who wouldn't? It seems like a great idea; recycling soap and shampoo to help people with basic hygiene to prevent communicable diseases that are possibly fatal. Here's a chart from the website:
Global Health Statistics
Major Causes of Death in Neonates and Children Under Five in the World
Of course, since clean water is also an issue in many third world countries, doesn't this defeat the purpose? I just don't know. I'm going to think on this a little more and might even try to get Gators for a Sustainable Campus on board with doing a drive for these folks. Not sure, because I have lots going on right now with a new job (!) and need to put whatever extra energy and time I have into keeping family ties and concentrating on school.
