In 2012, just hired as a communications associate with Dr. Bronner’s, I began working on a project to support fundraising for the purchase of bed nets to curtail malaria, and support the building of a maternity ward in the local health care facility in Asuom, Ghana, where Dr. Bronner’s palm oil is produced. A great success, the “Help Dr. Bronner’s Fight Malaria in Eastern Ghana” campaign succeeded in raising over $50,000. In the process we also educated many of our... Continue Reading
Who knew that buddha bowls could be so simple to make? Although they usually require a couple micro-recipes to create, using clean ingredients from the start maximizes flavor, meaning each element can be made with ease.

The writing on the bottle for which he became famous had a well-defined objective—he wanted to convince everyone he encountered that world peace is possible if we are willing to overcome sectarian divisions and come together under a shared set of moral values that he called the Moral ABC. He also understood that the machinery of war was antithetical to this mission of peace. As he... Continue Reading
As a Dr. Bronner’s employee, I learned that the company is a philanthropic supporter of Compassion Over Killing (COK), a non-profit farm animal protection organization. As a lifelong vegetarian and animal lover, I was curious to learn more about the work they do. I recently had the honor of interviewing Erica Meier, Executive Director of Compassion Over Killing and a tenacious leader in the animal rights movement.
I couldn’t be more excited by the bright light of truth Michael’s book shines on such a crucial but poorly understood and wrongly demonized subject. “How to Change Your Mind” holds tremendous potential to change millions of minds and make a significant cultural impact in how we as a society understand psychedelics.
Ideal for a simple and healthy dinner, stir-frys cook up exceptionally quickly, and are brimming with beneficial vegetables and balanced nutrition. Here, coconut oil is used as a complimentary base for the exciting spices of green curry, lime juice, and fresh cilantro, which combine to make this medley of tender-crisp greens and plant-based protein absolutely irresistible.
