The hospitality industry discards billions of soap bars every year, yet this most basic form of medicine is not available to many communities vulnerable to disease and other hygiene challenges.
By recycling soap we not only reduce landfill waste and the use of raw materials, we give it a second life, one that saves lives.
First we collect all discarded bars from hotels. A specialist facility then cleans and filters the soap. Each bar is shredded, heated and refined to create new hygienic bars ready for distribution.
Alongside the Global Charitable Organisation, Rapid Relief Team (RRT), we distribute the soap to those in need and educate vulnerable communities about disease prevention and management.
