Suds of change...?

As 'greenies' from way back, we travel with our own soaps.
     But even we're sometimes caught out and are guilt-struck by having to use those mini hotel soaps - which are technically designed for one stay, but in reality would last most people a week.
     So we're super-thrilled to hear about the Global Soap Project, set up in the States to collect and recycle soap from over 600 US hotels and counting, sending it to communities in the developing world (especially across Africa) who have sanitation problems, and little access to a commodity we all take for granted.
     A pat on the back, for sure, to hotel groups like Hilton, Wyndham, Marriott and more for getting with the soap programme.
    But what we'd really like, now, is for some enterprising Beauty Bible devotee to set up the UK arm of Global Soap Project...!
