Soap dispensers, saving waste

Many of us remember being a kid (or a grown up !) and collecting the little soaps from the hotels we would stay in with our parents (or friends !).

But that was before!

When it comes to giving an ecolabel to tourist establishments it has to be recognised that most of the waste is represented by the traditional ´welcome products´, with soaps occupying up to 70% of such cases.

On the one hand, there is the individual plastic or paper wrapper that industries are ceasing to use with the modern change in mentalities, on the other hand there are the soaps which are very rarely used in their entirety. Of course it is not these ones that we tend to take home with us but the other, unwrapped ones. Other than the obvious waste for the environment, they are also significant expenses for the hotels.

The answer?

Soap dispensers ! affixed to the wall and usually at the very least of equal quality to that of the smaller wrapped soaps. Also, buying in bulk can give access to higher quality products at reduced prices.

There is no need to worry about the appearance and style of such dispensers: from chic to designer as well as basic, each establishment can find the right ones to suit their style.

Conclusion: No more collecting, no more waste, and money saved!
