We are a social enterprise that collects and sanitizes gently used bar soaps from hotels and upcycles them into liquid hand soap. Through this process, we work towards alleviating homelessness while diverting reusable materials from the waste stream.
Each bottle of soap is made by individuals overcoming hardships. By employing them in our soap upcycling process, they earn a wage, create positive relationships alongside student volunteers, and gain meaningful work experience to help better their lives. With your support, we can continue sustainable practices and provide individuals with an opportunity to change their lives.
We aim to create second chances to help and empower people across all walks of life while benefitting our environment. We accomplish this by creating transitional work opportunities through the up-cycling of reusable materials that tackle the the triple bottom line.
Our Sanitation Process
Gently used bar soaps are collected from our suppliers at local hotels.
Bar soaps are submerged a bleach solution to be disinfected and sterilized.
The top layers of the bar soaps are scraped and shaved with various tools.
Bars are removed from the bleach solution and are placed on drying racks to dry.
The bar soap is then carefully (and lovingly) handcrafted to perfection.
All of our soaps are then hand packaged, and sent with a loving note your way!
Hope for Freedom Society
Hope for Freedom Society offers a sustainable, faith based presence in our community that reaches out to support individuals and families who have been challenged by such things as family breakdown, illness, job loss, addiction, and poverty. As a community service provider we strive to create conditions that will give men, women and children in our local community the ability to succeed. Success to us means that no need should go unmet. Our programs not only reach those that are facing serious life issues, but provide a platform for others in our community who are wishing to make a difference.
We work with Hope for Freedom’s recovery program that targets marginalized individuals who seek real life transformations and are serious about breaking their addictions. Clients commit to abstinence-based living, and remaining free from substances to achieve their goals together.
