Kalliste Soap Shop Creates “Bar of Hope”
Although we primarily work with hotels to procure the raw materials for our soap, we have gotten a lot of attention from small boutique soap makers all over the country. It’s always a cool surprise to find a box of hand crafted, unique soap that we can process into a small batch of really nice new bars.
But Marie Labropoulos, owner of the Kalliste Soap Shop in Scarsdale, NY wanted to do more. Her soaps are all organic and produced with no animal by-products. When she learned about the GSP, felt that our cause and her own mission shared similar values. She launched the “Bar of Hope” at a special cocktail hour and fundraiser, raising awareness in her community and raising money to help us further our work.
It is individuals like Marie who have made a huge impact on the growth and success of the Global Soap Project. We are inspired by social entrepreneurs like Marie, students like Maren Johnson who have made a commitment to community service through their work with the GSP, and the countless volunteers here in Atlanta who have helped build our organization and make the soap! Thanks to you all. We can’t wait to see what comes next.
