SFWOI (Soap from Waste Oil Initiative)

Does creating something useful out of our waste oil create tolerance and understanding of waste oil dumping from the restaurant industry? Does it instill value into something otherwise considered as garbage and disposed of improperly?

There are over 25,000 restaurants within New York City alone that create more than 14 million gallons of waste oil every year. Of that number, roughly 1.4 million gallons is never picked up by collection services and is therefore dumped into our waterways and sewage systems. SFWOI is an attempt to decrease the amount of waste oil illegally dumped every year, and raise awareness of this issue.
