Martial Gervais Oden-Bella—who is a scientist from Cameroon, South Africa— is pioneering a technique for the development of eco-friendly and innovative cleaning supplies. The ingredients used to make the soaps and cleaning products rely on food waste, more specifically—cooking oil.
This method for effective and innovative cleaning supplies is extremely important and it is not only because of its ability to curb waste. Pouring oil down drainpipes after use has significant implications for nature, as the substance has the potential to pollute water treatment systems, as well as harm animals and the environment.
Martial Gervais Oden-Bella sources the ingredients needed for the innovative cleaning and soap products through partnerships with hotels and small local businesses.
