Soap. It’s that important! 皂福中國，皂福世界
Soap Cycling collects lightly used soap from hotels that would otherwise go to waste, recycles it and brings it into the hands of those who need it the most.
Soap Cycling’s vision is to use soap recycling as a tool to engage the local community and inspire the next generation to reach their full potential in leading the way to a more sustainable future.
For a cleaner environment
To research and create lasting and scalable waste solutions for soap and other waste products in the hospitality industry
For more empowerment
To provide employment and youth empowerment opportunities in local communities
For better hygiene
To improve sanitation and hygiene of disadvantaged communities by providing soap for free
Founded by students from the University of Hong Kong in 2012, the organization exists as a platform for young people gain experiential leadership skills by running a live charity for a semester.
Working with over 200 hotel partners in 5 countries, the Soap Cycling team saves over 25 tons of discarded soap and plastic amenity bottles from landfills ever year. We process the waste into a live-saving hygiene and sanitation amenities: Truly turning one person's trash into another person's treasure!
Hand washing with soap is easy and cheap, yet powerful for good hygiene. It prevents infectious diseases such as diarrhea, tuberculosis, pneumonia, or cholera which are responsible for the deaths of over 1/3 of all children in the developing world. We give the information and the tool for good hygiene practice - for free!
