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 a large number of hotels, a recycling workshop, 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 like to call them “Saponistis” and “Saponistas”.
Our Recycling Workshop
The social integration of people with disabilities is at the core of our SapoCycle model. We have therefore selected a partner to establish our recycling workshop in Switzerland. Wohnwerk, based in Basel, developed together with the Fachhochschule Nordwestschweiz, a unique process of soap recycling adapted to people with disabilities. Ten adults work on a daily basis on recycling discarded hotels soap and liquid toiletries in this facility.
Our Distribution Partners
Our third pillar consists in the distribution of socially responsible recycled soaps to people in need. To achieve this we partner with organizations and institutions, both locally and abroad, who specialize in hygiene education programs or helping people in need.
In Switzerland, we are working regularly with:
