Sustainable suds that do good (and smell great)

This soap looks gorgeous, smells amazing, and saves lives while helping the environment. Meaning we suddenly need to wash our hands. A lot.

Get soap, get soap!

We love soaps that do good in the world, and the brand Hand in Hand has a lot to offer. The brainchild of a husband-wife team who wanted to found a business based on sustainable giving, Hand in Hand goes the extra mile to improve the world on two fronts: for every bar purchased, they provide one bar of soap to a child in Haiti and save 50 square feet of rain forest.

But we know that good works aren’t enough, so I’m excited to tell you that the White Tea, Orange Blossom, and Lavender scents smell and look absolutely gorgeous. Plus they contain only natural, ethically harvested, organic ingredients and are fair trade certified. What’s more, they ship with carbon offset, in eco-friendly packaging after being handmade in Vermont.

So can we agree they get an A+ for effort on all fronts?

And an A++ for pretty.

Considering the significant number of lives that can be saved in developing countries just by proper hand-washing with soap, we can’t think of a better way to treat yourself, and spread hope. -Delilah
