Museum Showcases "The Soap Story" With New Exhibit
Clean the World Foundation has opened The Soap Story, an interactive soap museum located at the Clean the World Recycling Operations Center in Orlando. This is the first soap museum of its kind, according to Newswire reports.
The mission of The Soap Story is to create an interactive, educational experience centered around health, beauty, and hygiene while driving awareness to Clean the World Foundation’s water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) programs.
According to reports, the museum will highlight over a century of soap history, including early 1800’s soaps, advertisements, illustrations, antique washing machines, and educational pieces covering the importance of soap throughout the world, featuring special pieces from Germany, France, India, and more. Visitors will learn about the original soap brands, and see collections featuring popular name brands such as Palmolive, Yardley, Ivory, Dial, Persil, Pears, and Tide, among many others.
Visitors to the center will enjoy the history of soap before making their way to the World’s Recycling Operations Center. There, they will experience how partially-used hotel soaps and bottled amenities are recycled and repurposed. Individuals will also get an inside look at the different programs Clean the World Foundation operates globally, including WASH education programs, disaster relief aid, and micro-financing projects.
