What is Soap Recycling?
Using salvaged end pieces of factory soap (provided by Eco Soap Bank) and gently used hotel bars from partners in Panama City, our soap makers in Metetí are sanitizing, hand grating, forming soap dough, and pressing soap into molds. Our team supplies soap for rural communities with barriers to hygiene products, local schools, health centers, and incoming medical teams since the pandemic began in March of 2020.
In March of 2023, our team gave a presentation on their process at the Recycling Fair in the Biodiversity Museum!
