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.
