The Global Soap Project improves and saves lives one bar of soap at a time by sanitizing, melting and remolding used soap into new bars for distribution to African refugee camps.
With the hospitality industry discarding 2.6 million used bars of soap per day, there is a tremendous supply available to the GSP for their soap production. Derrick’s passion and drive mobilizes the hotel and lodging industry to send used soap to GSP instead of the landfill, a double win!
To date GSP has received over 20 tons of soap from their hotel partners across the nation and has distributed an estimated 20,000 news bars of soap to Haiti, Swaziland, Kenya and Uganda. Currently, 10,000 bars of soap are in production for Ghana.
CALL TO ACTION: Whenever possible, educate those employed at hotels or other lodging facilities about GSP and encourage the property to participate in the double win program. Our collective voice is powerful and the time is NOW to verbalize our sustainability commitment.
