Soap Folk is on a mission to get more organisations using bar soap. We believe making small changes in the workplace can lead to big differences for the environment. Ditching plastic bottles in favour of a zero waste bar of natural soap is better for your business and better for the planet.
Whether you call it a cloakroom, restroom or public toilet, businesses have a duty of care to provide its staff and visitors with a handwashing facility. That’s a lot of plastic bottles at the sink!
Switching the bottle for the humble bar soap can bring meaningful and long lasting benefits.
Better for your bottom line - Soap bars outlast liquid soap so you’ll lower your costs and spend less time refilling dispensers
Better for your people - Compared to liquid soap, bar soaps are naturally paraben, preservative and sulfate free, but rich in natural glycerine, making them more suitable for wider audience.
Better for the environment - Not only is natural soap a plastic free product, it’s more compact and efficient to transport due to the lower water content.
Don’t forget the ripple effect
By choosing to go plastic free in the bathroom, you are leading by example and inspiring your staff and visitors to make sustainable choices at home. If you are looking for ways to deepen your organisation’s environmental policy, this is an easy, highly visible and cost effective way to do it.
