First organic soap workshop

15-5-2017

Badr Hassun Eco-Village inaugurated last Saturday a workshop in Dahr el Ain in Koora for the manufacture of environmental friendly organic soap and essential oils which is the first globally. After a tour to the village and the permanent exhibition, Badr Hassun said: “We have turned the traditional craft into a Lebanese cultural speciality roaming the world.” He pointed out that the workshop has a capacity to produce over 1,400 varieties of soaps and aromatic oils from herbs planted naturally and organically in the village’s eco garden. These products are now on display in famous local and world hospitals and hotels, Hassun explained, urging local customers to contribute to the promotion of heritage products as a vehicle to promote the national industry. He demanded that Lebanese people join forces to support their industry which has become known over the globe as a “Lebanese green industry”. The labor minister, Mohammad Kabbara, who was present at the opening ceremony, praised all hardworking hands throughout generations who have turned this profession into a flourishing trade that has never stopped growing, pressing the need to protect it.
