SHARING ECO-SOAP KNOWLEDGE – JOOSOAP STUDIO

Ying-Ju Lin, Andrea Botero

Abstract


In this paper we document some of the experiences gained while designing and prototyping JooSoap Studio. JooSoap Studio aims to make it easy for people to gather and make eco-soap products together, anywhere in the world. The Studio is part of a larger project that aims to spread sustainable knowledge around making ecological cleaning soap (eco-soap) from recycled used (kitchen) cooking oil pioneered by activist communities in Japan and Taiwan. JooSoap Studio experiments with tools, practices and infrastructures that will help spreading this knowledge to more communities, through local engagement, aiming at sustainability and replicability of the information.
