New Zealand organisation Beyond Skin Deep is upcycling discarded hotel soaps to help save the lives of vulnerable young children. According to the World Health Organisation, diarrhoea kills around 525,000 children under five each year. The partly used hotel soaps are cleaned and made into hygienic new bars which are then distributed by global charity Rapid Relief Team to communities in need of improved sanitation in Argentina and the Caribbean.
