One of the biggest problems in modern society is wastefulness. In many parts of the world, food, water, and even electricity are frequently—and carelessly—wasted.
It’s such a problem that we don’t even realize the extent of what we’re doing. Hotel soap, for example, often gets thrown out whether it’s used or not, despite the fact that countless people around the planet are dying because they don’t have access to such hygienic necessities.
One forward-thinking man realized that this was an issue, and decided that it was up to him to do something about it. What he did next made him a hero!
Roughly one million bars of soap are thrown out in the United States each day, and it’s estimated that about five million bars are thrown out on a daily basis worldwide.
