Using Foam Soap instead of Liquid Soap for Cost Savings & Environmental Benefits.

How does Foam Soap work?

Foam soap starts as a liquid, the dispenser injects air into the liquid and thus making foam out of it. It generates a lot less liquid in your hand but due to the fact it spreads more easily it gives you the impression that you are using a lot. Foam soap is pre-lathered, so users do not have to run water to lather up.

Cost Effective

Studies show that foam soap users use 16% less water to rinse off.  (Source: Environmental Leader) This means commercial users like airports, schools, office buildings and even hospitals can save on the water bill with significant impact. Check out the below statement from Environmental Leader to show the savings this would bring about. ‘Presuming people wash their hands three times a day at work, an office of 100 people currently using lotion soap would save approximately 20,000 litres or about 5,283 gallons of water, per year simply by changing to foam soap.’

Wasting less soap means buying less soap. Foaming soap dispensers like the North Shore Foam Soap Dispenser release 0.8ml of soap per dose whereas regular liquid soap dispensers like a Pink Pearl 500ml pump that dispenses a minimum of 3ml per dose. Foam soap allows users to achieve the same level of cleanliness with less soap.

Environmentally Friendly

With foam soap being a diluted form of liquid hand soap, less soap is used per hand washing session. Due to less soap being used it is less likely to clog drains and pipework up which cleaners usually use a harsh chemical or detergent to resolve.

Other points previously mentioned include: savings on the water usage, more hand washes per pack with foaming soap, reducing packaging so less waste and less need to buy as much soap which also decreases the need for transportation which in turn lowers the levels of pollution.
