Our list of contributing hotel and resort partners continues to grow every day. Once we collect soap from the hotels, the next step is to turn around the product and get it into (and onto) the hands of the people who need it. So after defining the protocol of our sterilization, recycling and packaging process, we needed to put in place a scalable operations team that could handle the influx of raw material from our hotel partners. But in addition to the required operational expertise, we wanted to find a partner who gives back and tries to effect positive change in the community. That’s exactly what we found with Central Care Mission in Orlando, and we are fortunate to have them as our operational partner. You’ll learn more about this great organization in upcoming blogs and newsletters.
The Central Care team uses a variety of tools and machines to recycle and package our soap, many of which had to be adapted to suit our particular needs. That’s why we feel fortunate to have a relationship with the wonderful Susan Ryhanen, owner of Creekside Soaps (http://creeksidesoaps.com). Susan donated four custom-made molds, which are an invaluable part of our production process.
