“Local produce, local use! Easy and fun to do! Stop dumping used cooking oil that blocks the drain. Upcycle and clean your home.”
Every liter of used cooking oil can become 1 kg of EcoSoap for household cleaning and handwashing. Join JooSoap Studio for a hands-on workshop next to a lovely greenhouse: Kääntöpöytä near Pasila, Helsinki. You will learn how to make eco-soap in a simple way, without electricity or heat. And you will also get acquainted with related environmental and health issues. Tested and tried technologies/experience from Taiwan since 1996! We will source some used cooking oil from local restaurants in Helsinki, and you are also welcome to bring your own used cooking oil from your kitchen or nearby restaurants for a test to see if the restaurant is worth trusting or not.
A total of seven workshops will be organized on September 10, 11, 13, 14. Every workshop is limited to 12 people; registration via this form is required.
