We are beyond excited to announce our partnership with the Eco- Soap Bank. As a former educator and woman business owner we are proud to be affiliated with this organization that supports women and children’s health and employment options. The Eco-Soap Bank is a humanitarian and environmental non-profit organization working to save, sanitize, and supply leftover soap from manufacturers for the developing world. As one of their “scrap packers” we fill boxes that hold ten pounds of soap scrap from our soap operation. This soap scrap consists mostly of soap ends from our soap logs, shavings for laundry soap, and any leftover soap we may have. This soap is then shipped to one of the Eco-Soap Bank’s hubs where they work with partners to employ women who come from disadvantaged backgrounds and have no other reliable sources of income. These women repurpose the soap into usable soap bars while being paid a good and livable wage. The soap is then distributed to children in over 25 countries around the world. These jobs are enabling them to support their families and make a product for those in need. Many of these bars end up in schools. I was shocked to learn that over 800 million children in the developing world go to school without using soap and water or have soap in their schools. Know that your soap purchases are also helping to support this mission!
Eco-Soap Banks seeks to address the critical need for hygiene. Working since 2014, the Eco Soap Bank has sustainably supplied more than 3.5 million people with soap and hygiene education. The demand for improved hygiene in the developing world is immense, and much remains to be done. You can support Eco-Soap Bank by donating, by getting involved firstname.lastname@example.org, or spreading the word on social media. Eco-Soap Bank’s mission is to provide soap to every school in the developing, and it costs $.20 to provide soap to a schoolchild for an entire year. Together let’s save lives.
