And now for the Unseen

ן    Dan Springer is saving people’s lives with soap. It all started seven years ago as a special project in his basement in Texas. At that time, Dan frequently traveled as part of his job. In every hotel he was given a bar of soap, like all the other guests. Dan wondered what hotels do with used bars of soap after the guests leave.

ןן While doing some research, Dan discovered that millions of used bars of soap from hotels worldwide are thrown away daily. He also read an interview with Dr. William Warren from the United Nations. Dr. Warren claimed that many people in developing countries are dying from diseases that could easily be prevented by using soap. 

ןןן   “Keeping clean is a huge problem in developing countries. Many deadly diseases are spread through the bacteria on our hands,” Dr. Warren explained. “In the U.S. it’s easy to keep clean. Americans can find soap everywhere, including public toilets, restaurants and schools. This isn’t true in many other countries.” 

ןןן   “Keeping clean is a huge problem in developing countries. Many deadly diseases are spread through the bacteria on our hands,” Dr. Warren explained. “In the U.S. it’s easy to keep clean. Americans can find soap everywhere, including public toilets, restaurants and schools. This isn’t true in many other countries.” 

 

IV    Dan started his project to solve this problem. The company that developed from his project is now called “Clean the World.” It recycles soap collected from more than 4,000 hotels. It has factories in Las Vegas, Orlando and Hong Kong. These are cities with many hotels where thousands of used bars of soap can easily be collected every day. 

V     The soap is recycled through a simple process. Machines cut the soap up and remove the bacteria. It is then made into new bars of soap that are donated to developing countries. So far, the company has donated 25 million bars of recycled soap. 

VI    “Many people are surprised to discover that one of the most effective ways to prevent disease and death is by just washing your hands with soap,” said Dan. “We’re hoping to make a difference.”
