YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Are you looking for a community focussed team building exercise or project for your company, class or club to take part in?
CleanConscience can assist with this and at the same time you can assist CleanConscience with sorting through the soaps and plastic bottles we receive from hotels.
CleanConscience is ready to host volunteers eager to make a difference!
HOW DOES IT WORK
Half used soaps and travel sized bottled toiletries are recovered by our Programme Partners and donated to us for reprocessing to be gifted to those in need.
The activities are labour intensive, repetitive, manual processes, involving sorting the soap and toiletries and manually emptying the containers from any product remaining.
The soaps need to be sorted and sterilised in a mild sterilisation bath (nothing dangerous) and the round ones need “chipping” with a potatoe chipper (again, nothing dangerous) in readiness for our Production Manager to reprocess them into soap noodles and new bars of soap, destined for Sundara, Mumbai.
The bottled toiletries need to be sorted into type – shampoo, body wash, conditioner and body lotion – and the almost full ones need to be nicely cleaned up and packed into boxes to be added to the CareKit™ Project toiletry bags by another group of volunteers.
The remainder of the bottled toiletries then need to be manually decanted from any product remaining – we have a very clever concept for doing this – and will be repackaged and gifted to domestic projects serving people in need, mostly UK based.
WHAT TO EXPECT
KNOWLEDGE: Find out why our work is so important and how soap saves lives.
SORTING & DECANTING: Volunteers help to sort and decant the soap and toiletry bottles we receive from hotels.
SOCIALISING: We make a good cup of tea and you can enjoy a natter with like minded people.
WHO CAN DO IT
Volunteering at CleanConscience is appropriate for children as well as adults. Volunteers must be at least 8 years old. Children ages 8 through 15 require supervision by a parent or guardian.
We can also accommodate a wide range of disabled people – physical disabilities, learning difficulties, autism, anxiety to name a few – please make enquiries to arrange a pre-volunteering visit, to see whether it is suitable for your requirements.
We can accommodate groups of up to 20 at any one time.
A signed liability waiver is required for all participants regardless of age.
WHEN & WHERE
WHEN: We are flexible as to when you can volunteer with us – make contact and suggest a date and we’ll check the calendar and let you know. We can offer a couple of hours, half a day or full day activities.
WHERE: At our recycling operating unit just outside Maidenhead (J8/9 off the M4).
THE CAREKIT™ PROJECT
Have a look at our CareKit™ Project and see whether this is something that your group might be interested in.
