What better way to end your Thursday then to hear about a company who is making a difference in a thoughtful way. Hand in Hand, is asoap brand that is extremely charitable and puts their heart into their business.
With the company’s moto being, “ Buy a bar, Give a bar”, Hand in Hand sustainable suds is reaching people all over the world. For every bottle or bar of soap purchased Hand in Hand, donates a bar of soap and a month of clean water to a child in need. This unique yet smart business was developed in 2011 by entrepreneurs who believed running a business can be much more than just making money. With having a similar business model to Heart & Soul PR, Inc., we felt this brand needs recognition for all of their good work.
Sometimes, non- profits face difficulties obtaining funds to carry out their mission but Hand in Hand goes about doing business based on sustainable giving. By connecting charitable donations to the sale of an everyday product and an essential for living, they are able to produce, save lives, and give back to those in need.
"The goal was to come up with a household product people use every day, that had the power to save lives. After 3 years of brainstorming, we came across an article reporting that each year over 5 million people die of diseases caused by poor water quality and lack of proper hygiene. After further research, we discovered that those deaths could be prevented by handwashing and clean water. It was at that moment that Hand in Hand was conceived" – Bill & Courtney, Founders/ CEO
On top of saving lives with their products, they went above and beyond from day one. Creating a product that will be used daily, they understood the environmental effect it could have if it wasn’t produced right. After doing some research in the early stages, Hand in Hand set out to create a product that is eco- friendly. Now a days, we are aware of how harmful our foot print can be so to design a product stemming from sustainable resources, as natural and fair trade as they come with a charitable outcome isthe way to do futurebusiness.
"To have a product that is truly eco-friendly, means more than just having natural ingredients. We have found that many natural soaps use ingredients that ultimately come from intentionally cleared rainforests, which was something that we wanted no part in. Every ingredient in our soap is not only natural, but it is harvested and grown in an environmentally friendly way." – Bill & Courtney
We hope this Thoughtful Thursday post inspired you to take a step back, look at your surroundings, and see what easy ways you can give back.
