Collecting, Recycling and Distributing Soap for a better world.

A Circular Initiative Centred Around Soap,

That Empowers the Community,

Promotes Hygiene and Protects Our Environment.

Soap Cycling is a WASH (water, sanitation, hygiene) social enterprise with operations in Hong Kong, Singapore, Philippines and China .

We support disadvantaged communities across Asia through a combination of empowerment programs and corporate team building events. Soap Cycling was Asia’s first soap recycling organization. We collect lightly used soap and bottled amenities from hotels that would otherwise go to waste, recycle it, and distribute it to those who need it the most.

Our Response to COVID-19

Ensuring Hand-Hygiene for All to Fight COVID-19

Since the start of the pandemic, Soap Cycling along with its partners have run targeted programmes such as #Soapin18 and #SoaptoCope to ensure equitable access to soap for frontline workers and underprivileged communities.
