Soap for Hope

Everyday in every hotel, whether in Bali or around the world, literally tons of soap are thrown away to landfills or sent to a faraway global recycling facility. The costs, whether monetary or environmentally, are high. Enter the Soap for Hope program, a localised solution to soap waste and to improving hygiene amongst the disadvantaged. 

The program, orginallycreated by cleaning solutions company Diversey, helps this luxury Seminyak hotel reduce its solid soap waste as well as improve the lives of some of the most poverty-stricken communities. Now a Bali Hotel Association supported program, with the drop off centre for BHA member hotels at the Trans Hotel.

The way it works is that old, used soap is collected then goes through a process of deconstruction, sanitation then reconstruction – the outcome is a clean, sanitised bar of soap ready to be used by anyone. The new bars are made using a cold-press method, a carbon neutral process without the need for electricity or space. However, as for many hotels these soaps are already discarded so rather than returning them back into the property these new bars are donated to families in-need, adding to the very necessary hygiene requirements that are often hard to meet for impoverished groups.
