The G.R.E.E.N. Hospitality Conference is hosted by Soap Cycling with the financial support of the Environment Bureau's Sustainable Development Fund and in partnership with The Foundation for Shared Impact and the Faculty of Business and Economics of The University of Hong Kong (HKU)
Soap Cycling was founded in 2012 as a charity organization that collects single-use soap bars from hotels in Hong Kong, to be reprocessed and distributed to disadvantaged communities which lack access to sanitary resources. Soap Cycling is devoted to youth empowerment and community engagement by providing these members of the community with practical and meaningful work experiences, and exposure to social responsibility.
Soap Cycling has grown its hotel partnership network to over 80 in Hong Kong, and more than 100 hotels overseas. Since 2017, Soap Cycling has added bottled hotel amenities to its recycling program, and the MEY Program has also been introduced as an empowerment initiative for disadvantaged youth and elderly by providing them with employment opportunities with a fair wage.
