Serving both the community & "Spaceship Earth", Dr. Bronner's operates on a progressive, socially-responsible model. They cap the compensation of their executive at 5 times that of the lowest paid worker, they provide generous retirement & health plans for their employees, and they donate heavily to social & environmental causes. Some of their recent projects have included developing fresh water wells in Ghana, funding orphanages in Haiti and China, creating organic farm projects, and donating over 1,200 acres of land to the San Diego County Boys and Girls Club.
The iconic 30,000 word-covered labels on their soap bottles represent the original Dr. Bronner's research into every religion & philosophy for "full truths" which can be summed up as:
- Sharing profits with the workers that helped generate it, as well as the earth, embodies the true meaning of "constructive" capitalism.
- We're all brothers & sisters here on Spaceship Earth, so we should take care of each other & the Earth.
These soaps are free of much of the nasty stuff that inadvertently harms both us & the earth, and contain only organic, chemical-free ingredients. (For a more on chemically-safe skincare, visit ChemicalSafeSkincare.co.uk)
