Okay, so you’re thinking, “What would a dirty hippie know about soap?” – sure, that makes sense. But really, neither one of us is truly dirty. We bathe regularly and consider handmade, natural, vegan soaps to be one of the fine luxuries in our lives.
Which brings us to SoapBox Soaps. Ever think of washing your hands for a good cause? The founders of SoapBox Soaps did. These two Boy Scouts have a mission: to donate a bar of soap for each one purchased.
Upon learning than many pandemic diseases could be greatly reduced with basic sanitation, friends Eric Vong and David Simnick built a business model that has joined forces with UNICEF and dozens of other national and international aid organizations. Each purchase of SoapBox soap means a bar of this natural soap will go to a person in need. And considering that over 24,000 children die every day from complications of unsanitary living conditions, it’s clear that a simple bar of soap can do more than just smell good!
But these soaps do that, too. They smell great – in fact, we’ve been using one as an air freshner in our office for the past few days. Lovely!
SoapBox soaps come in 3 scents: lavender, oatmeal clove and lemongrass. Each variety is created in the USA using USDA certified organic ingredients. There are no harsh chemicals used (no parabens or sulfates) and no preservatives are added, so that each bar is incredibly fresh.
SoapBox soaps are vegan, gluten-free, natural and organic. All that, heaped on top of the incredibly good cause, leaves me with just one question… Why aren’t you in the shower right now, scrubbing away with a luscious bar of SoapBox soap? May we suggest the oatmeal clove scent? It’s as warm and comfy as a Christmas morning…
You can buy SoapBox Soaps from the company’s website. Or they are now available at Whole Foods as well! While you’re online, be sure to check out their mission page, too. Inspiring stuff! Now, off you go. Scrub, scrub, scrub – I mean, you wouldn’t want someone to mistake you for a dirty hippie, would you?
