Ever wondered what happens to that soap bar in your hotel room you only use once?
We put it in the hands of someone who needs it!
The mission of the Global Soap – Europe is to bring hope through soap. We provide the simple tool of soap to people who find themselves at risk of contracting life-threatening illnesses due to poor sanitary conditions and inadequate hygiene practices.
Based in Rome, Italy, we are an Italian nonprofit (ONLUS–D. Lgs. 460/97, art. 10) working with partner hotels throughout Europe to repurpose soap waste that they would otherwise send to landfills. We facilitate a process by which the soap is repurposed into brand-new bars, and distributed to those in need through hygiene programming carried out by NGO partners.
Partnered with the United States Mission to the UN Food Agencies, the United Nations Humanitarian Response Depot and several major hotel chains, we at GSE are stepping up our efforts to bring the simple tool of better health and hygiene to more people in need globally.
