TRAINING
All donations are paired with hand washing training to ensure communities remain safe from preventable illnesses.
Our process is designed to be simple, efficient, and scalable. In addition, an important component of our model is the way the soap is recycled. Eco-Soap Bank focuses on hiring local women from disadvantaged backgrounds, training them as soap recyclers, and providing them with steady wages. Our soapmakers play an integral role in our mission to make access to soap a human right. Our operations depend on support from donors. Your donation—however small—has a big impact. Please consider joining in the fight for global hygiene by supporting our work.
