How Recycled Soap Can Increase Economic Opportunities, Health Education, and Sanitation Access: One Man’s Story

Eco-Soap Bank is one organization that is going above and beyond to transform the lives of families around the world through the power of hygiene and education. I had the privilege to meet some of the Eco-Soap Bank team when I was in Cambodia and see them in action, and I am so proud of how far they've come. Please consider supporting their latest initiative, Project EcoSoap, as they aim to employ an additional 45 women full-time and expand their reach with a 'buy one, give 100' model to continue giving soap and hygiene education to countless more children and families. #ProjectEcoSoap #recycling #hygiene #sanitation #WASH
