Bars in Australia and New Zealand have been collecting left behind lemons from drinks and giving them to Bacardi to make soap.

Under its 42Below vodka brand that is manufactured in New Zealand, Bacardi is collecting the used fruit and turning it into a liquid soap. Once manufactured, the lemons are returned as soap to the bars for free.

When the initiative launched in December 2016, 400kgs of fruit waste was collected and was turned into 20,000 sachets and 400 bottles of liquid soap.

It is now being rolled out in more bars across Australia and New Zealand.
