Heysprouts x Soap for Hope
Soap for Hope is a programme that was launched in 2013 and to date has diverted 3,800 tons of soap from landfills across the world and converted them into 31.6 million bars of soap which were redistributed to marginalized communities.
Heysprouts is proud to be the local partner of Soap for Hope in Singapore. We collect discarded bars of soap from hotel chains and then our youths process them to turn them into new bars of soap for distribution both in Singapore and overseas.
The social impact of the programme is:
Environment: Redirect solid soap waste from landfills
Hygiene and Sanitation: Half a million people die each year from diarrhea or acute respiratory diseases which could have been prevented by good hand hygiene. Yet 2.3 billion people globally lack water and soap to wash their hands at home (https://data.unicef.org/resources/state-of-the-worlds-hand-hygiene/)
Employment and Community: We are then able to hire more youths to work on this programme in collaboration with various partners and there is also community involvement for these special needs youths to create positive engagement experiences
