Where DIY and environmental sustainability collide! In this interactive and hands-on workshop, you will learn how to make your own household soaps from (wait for it…) used cooking oil! By using a natural cold press process, the soap is enriched with glycerine produced by the natural saponification process. This means that the soap is powerful on dirt, while being gentle to both your skin and the environment. In fact, whether it’s cleaning the dishes, removing stains from undergarments, or even scrubbing the toilet, this eco soap is a miracle worker! At the end of the workshop you will take home roughly 500g of scented eco soap, soap molds for future use, and an ignited passion for sustainability. Join the zero waste movement today!
