Making socially responsible soaps.
SapoCycle is the first non-profit organisation in Europe 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.
Great companies are helping us to change lives.
Awards motivate us to keep going.

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.
