recycling soap

Tiny bubbles!!!

Massive quantities of soap scraps go to waste every day in America. Most people throw them in the garbage, adding to the nation’s many landfills. Some are burned in trash incinerators. Other scraps go down the drain, often helping to clog the pipes. All of this waste leads to unnecessary production of hand soaps and packaging materials.

Fortunately, a couple of nonprofit organizations are working to change this. The Global Soap Project collects scraps from American motels and uses them to manufacture new soaps. It gives the new bars to poor people, primarily in African countries. This green recycling process both benefits the environment and protects people from diseases.

Clean the World is a similar recycling organization. It obtains scraps from hotels and manufacturers. CTW also holds local collection drives in various parts of the country. This green nonprofit helps people in 45 nations, including Honduras. It supplies free products to American homeless shelters as well. CTW is based in Orlando, Florida.

There are several different ways to help these organizations recycle soap. Anyone may volunteer or donate cash. An alternative is to start a local collection drive in cooperation with Clean the World. Motel and inn owners can aid these organizations by collecting and donating scraps from their guest rooms.

People also have the option to collect their own scraps and recycle them into new bars. Although this won’t help people in poor countries, it does save money and benefit the environment. Detailed instructions are available fromĀ RecycleThis.co.uk andĀ National Geographic.

Plastic, glass, and paper are recycled without being given a second thought, but what about recycling bras? While it may seem like an odd question, there are a number of companies taking the initiative to recycle these used undergarments.
There are hundreds of thousands of undergarments purchased by women each year, most of which end up in the landfill. However, a bra has more potential than many realize and shouldn’t be thrown out in such haste.Leading undergarment manufacturers in Japan are recycling used bras in order to make fuel for industrial use. Not only does it help to reduce the amount of bras that make it to the landfill, but it also helps them to pursue green business practices that benefit the environment.Although, as of yet, there aren’t any programs in the United States that convert used bras into fuel, there are other ways women can recycle their unwanted undergarments.
Bra Recyclers collect used and new bras and distribute them to women in need. While they aren’t converted into fuel, recycling bras in this manner still helps the environment by reducing the amount of waste that would have gone to landfill. The Bosom Buddy Program is another great option. Just like Bra Recyclers, The Bosom Buddy Program helps women in need, assisting them in their pursuit for self-sufficiency.

Next time, while sorting through recyclables, don’t forget to sift through old bras. Any bras that are in good and working condition are eligible for the program.
