Soap can save lives…so why are we throwing so much of it away?  I know I’ve had countless bars of barely used soap thrown away by the cleaning staff (following policy) during my hotel stays.  I’ve even brought unused soaps home with us knowing that the hotel will probably have to throw it away just in case someone touched it.  Over time we’ve accumulated a bunch of hotel soaps and I’ve been wondering how we will ever use them up, or where we could donate them! 

Well, now I know!  Derreck Kayongo started the Global Soap Project, which collects, sanitizes, and repackages these soaps and then distributes them to areas where people are literally dying without it.    What a difference a simple, common sense idea can make.  I’m excited to put together a box to send to his warehouse soon!   

I found out about this from CNN’s recent feature here!
