Eco-Soap Bank, Soap Recycling and Hygiene Education

Eco-Soap Bank 

The lack of access to soap remains critical in fighting the spread of preventable diseases worldwide. In some areas of the developing world, only 1% of households have soap for handwashing. 

Established in 2014, based in the US, Eco-Soap Bank seeks to address the critical need for hygiene and has supplied more than 3.5 million people with soap and hygiene education. As a humanitarian and environmental non-profit organization, Eco-Soap Bank work to save, sanitize, and supply leftover soap from manufacturers to help develop the world.  Eco-Soap Bank has recycled over 730 tons of soap that would otherwise have wound up in landfills.

Eco-Soap Bank’s three objectives are: 

  1. Contribute a highly cost-effective hygiene product to improve health 

  1. Significantly reduce the waste generated by industry 

  1. Provide livelihoods and free education to disadvantaged women with no other reliable source of income.  

Eco-Soap Bank currently employs 154 women from disadvantaged backgrounds who have had trouble making ends meet. These women also serve as hygiene ambassadors, selling recycled soap in their communities and promoting its use. 

We will be working closely with Eco-Soap Bank to build relationships with our customers to help support the project.
