This Mumbai-Based NGO Helps To Recycle Lives In Slums

Every year tourists from across the world stay at thousands of hotels in the country and when they leave, their barely used soaps make way to landfills and waste management plants.

The half-used soaps that guests leave behind are now spearheading a hygiene movement in Mumbai’s suburb Kalwa.

Watch here how Sundara conducts the soap-recycling process:
