Recycling soap for distribution to vulnerable communities to improve hygiene and save lives.

2 million children die of diseases – like diarrhea and pneumonia – that can be prevented by regular hand washing.

Poor hygiene is responsible for 1 out of every 9 child deaths – that’s more than AIDS, measles and malaria combined.

Handwashing with soap can reduce the number of diarrhoea cases by more than 40 per cent.

An estimated five million bars of waste or unused soap are thrown away every day.


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.

The collection of soap waste can prevent thousands of tonnes of useable soap ending up in a landfill.


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.

Washing hands with soap and water could reduce diarrheal disease-associated deaths by up to 40%.


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.
