Soap Hope Partners with Josiah Mackenzie to Distribute Poverty-Fighting Products to Hotels via HotelSoap.org.

Soap Hope and Hotel Marketing Strategies publisher Josiah Mackenzie believe hotels can change the world by changing their soap supplier.

Dallas-based Soap Hope, founded by Salah Boukadoum, invests 100% of its profits into anti-poverty organizations that provide loans, training, literacy, healthcare, and other services to enterprising women, permanently lifting whole communities from poverty and providing families with the resources and skills they need to be self sufficient.

They call the program "Good Returns", and that mission extends to their 100% natural products. Derived from plants or milk, and free of petroleum-derived ingredients, artificial colors, fragrance, or parabens, their soaps satisfy a growing shift in consumer preferences toward health and eco-conscious products.

To introduce these amenities to hotels and further the vision of Salah and co-founder Craig Tiritilli, Josiah Mackenzie set up an exclusive distribution partnership to supply the hospitality industry with Soap Hope products through HotelSoap.org.

HotelSoap.org Gives Hotels 3 Ways to Fight Poverty
Soap Hope and Mackenzie work for "Good Returns" at every stage of the operation:

#1 Buying soap from the right manufacturers

They work with producers that:

  • Commit to environmentally-friendly operating practices
  • Create jobs in their local communities
  • Produce world class, all-natural soaps
#2 Fighting poverty through profits

100% of the operation's profits are invested in anti-poverty organizations and micro-loans to small business owners in developing countries: an approach proven to help families become self-sufficient and lift entire communities out of poverty.

#3 Recycling soap

The 4.5 million hotel rooms in the United States alone produce several tons of tossed toiletries every day. Most hoteliers and guests don't realize leftover and unused soap can be salvaged and re-purposed to fight disease and prevent poor-hygiene-related deaths, and that's where Hotel Soap and their friends at Clean the World come in. Recycling and shipping hotels' leftover soap to needy regions is a final step that's the ultimate "Good Return".

Hotels interested in changing the world through their soap supplier should visit HotelSoap.org, call them at 1 (888) 817-7619 or send an email to hello@hotelsoap.org.
