What We Do
Soap Cycling works with students, hotels, corporates, volunteers and WASH charities across Asia to recycle soap in a movement to reduce preventable hygiene-related diseases and suffering by distributing this life-saving resource to where it is needed the most.
Improve Sanitation & Hygiene
We at Soap Cycling aim to improve sanitation and hygiene in underprivileged regions, with a particular emphasis on reducing child mortality rates. Pneumonia and diarrhea are the leading causes of death for children under the age of five, more than a third of under-five deaths among children here can be attributed either directly or indirectly to pneumonia.
Simply washing hands with soap is one of the most effective ways to prevent children from suffering from these diseases.
Green Living & Waste Reduction
Over two million bars of soap are thrown away each year by hotels in Hong Kong. By collecting this soap, Soap Cycling is helping to eliminate thousands of pounds of chemical waste from our landfills each month.
We seek to help the public develop a greater awareness of up-cycling and maintaining a greener lifestyle for the betterment of the environment.
Education & Empowerment
The majority of Soap Cycling is composed of students. We offer internships in all aspects so students may gain hands-on experience and share their insights and skills. They are also infused with an appreciation for corporate social responsibility, social enterprise, and the importance of giving back in society. Read more.
