On 20th Sep, the soap recycling activity organized by Hilton Shenzhen Shekou Nanhai, involves more than 30 volunteers from local community, hotel team members and local media.  65 kilos soap was recycled in 2 hours which will be enough for 1 year usage by 130 children from the unprivileged area. These soaps will be delivered to different poverty areas in China to improve the sanitation and hygiene.

Every year, millions of children worldwide do not make it to their 5th birthday because of preventable diseases such as diarrheal and pneumonia. In Mainland China, it is estimated that hundreds of children die every day from diseases such as pneumonia and diarrheal. Although China has progressed rapidly in the past few decades, much work remains to be done to ensure every child has a chance at a healthy and happy future.

To keep the environment sustainable and fully utilize the used soap in hotel guest rooms, Guangdong Area hotels organized SOAP activity to help underprivileged regions to improve the sanitation and hygiene standard. As part of the activities in Global Week of Service, Shenzhen Area has participating SOAP recycling since 2016. Hilton Shenzhen Shekou Nanhai will continue SOAP Cycling activity in a quarterly basis to involve more Shenzhen local community into this program.

We are reminded of the great challenges faced in China, and in underprivileged communities around the world, to keep children healthy through proper hygiene. This initiative not only provides a direct way to improve hygiene and health for many people living in our local community, it also encourages awareness and education about the importance of hand washing as an effective means of preventing diseases.

We believe that through partnerships like this, we can achieve significant social impact. We thank both companies for getting involved, and invite others to join us in the future.


About Soap Cycling


Established in 2012, Soap Cycling is a registered charity based in Hong Kong, and is the first non-profit soap recycling organization in Asia. Soap Cycling seeks to improve sanitation and hygiene in underprivileged regions, one child at a time. They do that by collecting and processing used hotel soaps. These life-saving items then get distributed to underprivileged children and antenatal clinics in disadvantaged communities in Asia, and also to support disaster relief. Soap Cycling is almost completely run by students from The University of Hong Kong, who are given management positions within the company. By participating in the program, hotels are diverting tons of waste from the landfills, and supporting vulnerable people in need. Please visit www.soapcycling.org for more information.


深圳蛇口希尔顿南海酒店及明辉集团与再皂福携手于深圳开展再皂福活动


2018年09月20日,深圳蛇口希尔顿南海酒店通过线上征集,共计招募了来自本地社区、媒体及酒店员工等30名勤奋的志愿者参与肥皂回收的活动。2小时回收制作了65公斤肥皂,可供130个贫困地区小朋友使用1年,这些肥皂将会捐赠到中国的不同地区用于改善贫困地区儿童的清洁卫生。

全世界每年都有数百万名五岁以下的儿童由于患上如腹泻和肺炎这些可预防的疾病而死亡。尽管中国大陆在过去几十年里发展迅速,但是每天仍有约上百名儿童因为这个原因而死亡。所以我们有必要在大陆加快发展,确保儿童有一个健康和幸福的未来。

为了更好的保护环境可持续发展,充分利用希尔顿酒店客房的肥皂,希尔顿广东区域酒店组织肥皂活动旨在帮助贫困地区提升清洁卫生水平。作为全球服务周的一项活动,深圳区域酒店从2016年开始持续参与其中。而深圳蛇口希尔顿南海酒店将继续坚持举行季度性肥皂回收活动,让更多的本地社区居民了解并融入到回收计划中。

再皂福项目给予大家一个投身志愿工作的机会,也能帮助内地山区改善卫生状况。我们时刻牵挂内地以及全球山区的居民,他们和下一代都需要更洁净的生活来保持身心健康。与再皂福的合作项目不但能为本地弱势群体提供直接帮助,亦有教育和提高民众意识的作用,让大家了解到洗手对于预防疾病的重要性。

我们相信通过合作,我们可以产生重要的社会影响。我们感谢各方一直的积极参与,并将会邀请其他人也加入我们。

再皂福成立于2012年, 是在香港注册的慈善团体, 也是亚洲第一个非营利性肥皂回收组织。再皂福致力改善贫穷地区的生活环境和提高儿童的个人卫生意识。通过与本地不同酒店合作,再皂福回收及消毒二手肥皂,并送往亚洲其他贫穷国家,以降低当地居民患上疾病的风险。回收的肥皂,除了能帮助有需要的人士以外,也为环境出一份力,减少对堆填区的压力。再皂福主要是由香港大学的学生营运,详情请浏览再皂福官方网站www.soapcycling.org
