our community of partners
Our program “Bubbles Saving Lives” relies on the effective contribution of a number of partners, at each step of our process. We are pleased to work today with over 190 hotels, two recycling workshops, a logistics partner in Switzerland and a number of donors, supporters, sponsors and volunteers. They all form an inner circle of like-minded people and organisations who believe in our action: we call this community the SapoCIRCLE.
Our Recycling Workshops
The social integration of people with disabilities is at the core of our SapoCycle model. We have therefore selected two partners to establish our recycling workshops in Switzerland and in France. Wohnwerk, based in Basel, developed together with the Fachhochschule Nordwestschweiz, a unique process of soap recycling adapted to people with disabilities. Ten people work on a daily basis on used hotels soap recycling at this institution. In Mulhouse, we were able to replicate this process with Adapei Papillons Blancs d’Alsace which are recycling the used soaps from French hotels.
