SOAPAPER

SOAPAPER

SOAPAPER is a social business which aims to decrease plastic waste in landfills and waterbodies by selling an eco-friendly, plastic-free substitute for travel shampoo and soap products. Small-format plastic packaging causes immense waste due to its inability to be recycled. This is because plastic materials smaller than 2.5 inches fall through conveyor belts in recycling facilities and are discarded where the plastic eventually ends up in landfills or gets lost in our waterbodies. This issue also exists for travel shampoo bottles since the packaging’s small size causes the plastic to not be recycled. SOAPAPER is a solid shampoo which allows the product to be packaged in paper that is made from 100% recycled materials and is biodegradable. The program embraces circular-design to ensure that all elements of the value-chain are sustainable.
