Recycle the soap is helping the developing country

I read the news of the recycle soap for the developing country from hk01.com, I thought it is disgusting and I don’t understand why the soap can recycle or reuse at the beginning. After I read more the news, I understand that the soap recycling is not disgusting and it can help a lot of the people in the developing country. Most of the diseases can avoid by washing hands with soap.

David Bishop established the Nonprofit Organization – Soaprecycling (http://soapcycling.org/about-board) in 2011 who is the is a senior lecturer at Hong Kong University. Soaprecycling collected the soap from the hotel which is new or slightly used. the volunteers sort out the brand new soap and used soap, then the volunteers scrape the used soap to maintain the soap hygiene. After that the soap will be reshape and repacking. The soap deliver to the developing country finally.

A soap can save a life – soaprecycling mentioned thousands of children die from diseases simply by washing with soap.  Around 6 million Children die before 5 years old because by diseases every year. If they can wash their hands by soap before they eat , it save at least 50%. After I read the news from hk01.com, I tried to search more information about the recycle soap, the result showed the recycle soap is not a new idea and it has been working by some non government organizations since many years.

Clean The World is another soap recycle Nonprofit Organization, Shawn Seipler (the founder of Clean The World) mentioned the soap throw away after the room has been rented even the soap is new – this is the rule of the hotel. The recycle soap is win-win method to help the reduce the wastage and helping the people in the developing country.

Jollibee – This News is so touching! Good Job Jollibee!

13One man posted a father’s love message by social media, the post is regarding a family went to Jullibee, the father didn’t buy any food for himself and just looked at his daughters while they are eating the food. After the post circulated awhile, Jullibee invited this family and give them the food for free. This action maybe didn’t cause them spend or less any profit as a restaurant always prepare the food more than the sale. You may think this action just like an advertisement. However, Jullibee brought this family to the supermarket and let this family purchase the daily commodities. This is the extra money of their daily operation. Jubillbee also prepare a birthday party and gifts for his daughters. The father cried……

That is the win-win strategy, The Body Shop can realize their promotion by the app to the customer easily. Once the customers want to buy anything, they will look around the app to found the promotion and even more powerful than the e-mail. On the other hands, customers don’t need to carry many member card when they want to buy something, the chance of the customer visit increased. It also can save the paper and plastic member card.

Cause-related marketing is very important nowadays, it can be the win-win case for many parties.

Michelin should update their ranking standard with sustainability

I went to Tsim Sha Tsui (Hong Kong) for an hour relaxing facial treatment yesterday. I tried to find a restaurant for my lunch before my treatment…I decided to entry a restaurant because I saw the Michelin Guide Recommended Street Food. After I ordered my meal and exciting of the food. I was shocking when the food delivered in front of me (See photo above)… “I am not eating takeaway, why the restaurant is using the paper cup and styrofoam to serve the meal to me?”

Business is important, you can save the headcount for wash those tableware. Yes, the salary is high in Hong Kong. Yes, disposable products cause less expense. However, the earth is even more important – We only have one Earth“. Can the business consider to use the zero-waste disposable products to serve their food? Like the UBPack products, it is a biodegradable starch-based metariel and it can be decomposition by the water in 7 days, it may more expensive than the usual disposable products. The earth has a serious problem nowadays, I hope Michelin ranking can be considering increase the sustainability elements to educate the public.

You can find sustainability everywhere, it’s not limited work by banks, international fashion brands or Government departments. I just realize that Nespresso works on the sustainability deeply, the sustainably source program in Ethiopia, Kenya and South Sudan since 2003 and their goal 100% sustainably source in 2020. Nespresso managed the recycle of the capsule and keep increasing the recycle rate. They are creating an end-to-end loop for the aluminium that they use.

Sustainability is around your daily life, we need to maintain the better future for our coming generations.
