Ever wondered where that barely-used bar of soap went after your last hotel visit?

Erin Zaikis goes into her incredible journey in founding Sundara: a nonprofit organization that partners with slum women in India, Myanmar & Uganda to recycle soap & provide hygiene education to the communities that need it the most.

<br>

5 things to listen out for:

<br>

(1) How a trip to rural Thailand inspired her to take action and start a soap company 

<br>

(2) Making bars of soap in her Manhattan apartment and why she transitioned from a social business to a non-profit

<br>

(3) Why soap is often overlooked and why it is so powerful in preventing disease, empowering women and saving lives

<br>

(4) The steps she took to fundraise, spread the word and build her nonprofit

<br>

(5) Personal: what inspires her, what success means to her, what her plans are for the future, what makes a happy life, books that have helped her through the process and more

<br>

I hope you enjoy the conversation - please share this with your friends and help spread the word!
