Reuse is a keyword in helping to protect the environment.  Reuse your bags, clothing, electronics and the list goes on.  But what about reusing the waste oil from restaurants?  You have probably heard of biofuel and those who use it to run their automobiles, but what happens to the waste from the biofuel?

That is where Marshall and Megan Dostal’s creative thinking comes in.  Marshall has been collecting leftover grease from fine restaurants in L.A. for years and turning it into biofuel (in his own garage) for his car.  That is pretty creative on its own.  But, with the help of his wife, Megan, the Dostals managed to take “reuse†one step further.

Glycerin is a byproduct of the biofuel distillation process and with all of that biofuel creation, Marshall had a lot of it.  Glycerin is also used to make soap, which is exactly where the idea for Further Soap came in.

Mixed with aloe and other natural ingredients, the glycerin became a luxurious hand soap, scented with their signature fragrance of bergamot and olive essential oils and exotic grasses.

Well, of course they couldn’t stop there.  The Dostals then return their soap to the very restaurants where they originally get the waste oil to create the biofuel.  And the cycle continues.
