Making socially responsible soaps.
SapoCycle is a non-profit organisation that collects discarded soaps in hotels and turns them into life-saving products. The soaps are recycled by people with disabilities and then distributed to improve sanitary conditions of families in need.

So, how does it work?
It’s simple… Environmentally conscious hotels join us and collect the discarded soaps. In our recycling workshops the soaps are reprocessed and turned into new hygienic soap bars by people with disabilities under a strict bacteriological control. Our distribution partners give out the recycled soaps to families in need.
Bubbles saving lives.
More than 1.5 million children under the age of 5 die around the world each year due to two diseases (diarrheal diseases and respiratory tract infection) which could have been prevented by hand washing.
On Sunday, October 13th, Qoqa (www.qoqa.ch), a Swiss innovative daily sales website based in Lausanne carried out an action in favor of SapoCycle.
We gave to Caritas Alsace 4800 soaps to be sold at very low price for the Caritas grocery stores or distributed for specific actions on the Alsace region.
Thanks to our distribution partner, the organization “Basel hilft mit”, 1’000 of our socially responsible recycled soaps help refugees to preserve their dignity and improve hygiene
Great companies are helping us to change lives.
