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!

‘Wow there is soap and sanitizer! We only got masks before’, when we heard this from the street cleaners, we definitely wanted to do more. But we can’t do this alone. The support network from different companies and individual volunteers is very important for Soap Cycling. This time, our core partner Ming Fai Group donated 5000 bottles of sanitizer for the #SoaptoCope campaign. Thank you Ming Fai Group, and Thank you to all volunteers who have already supported #SoaptoCope !

Less than 40 hours left to be a Soaper Hero in 2019! Please read the story below about Clifford, a young man from the Philippines who suffered from a painful skin condition. His parents were unable to buy soap to treat his disease. With the help of soap donated by Soap Cycling, he is now able to live pain free and enjoy his childhood. Your support makes this possible!

Today is World Toilet Day, an annual global event organized by UN Water to raise awareness of the crucial role that sanitation plays in reducing disease and creating healthier communities. The WTD 2019 theme, "Leaving No One Behind," emphasizes the importance of expanding sanitation access to the more than 4.2 billion people living without safely managed sanitation options.

We also have 10 days left in our crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for shipping soap to those affected by flooding in southern Laos. Annually, poor sanitation and hygiene problems cause three million disease cases in Lao and 6.000 premature deaths. Thank you for being a Soaper Hero!
