Dr. Bronner’s Constructive Capitalism, Activism, and Giving
Dr. Bronner’s exists to help make a better world. As a company we strive to make better products and produce them under better conditions than what’s currently the norm in our economic system. From our progressive employment practices to our fair trade and regenerative organic supply chains, we make equitable use of the resources we steward.
We ensure all the farmers and workers in our supply chains make a living wage and are able take care of their land and communities in a way that regenerates rural economies and promotes biodiverse farming ecosystems.
As the fighting soap company, we leverage organizational resources including finances, staff, and other means to advance progressive social change. We’ve fought to raise the minimum wage; reform our nation’s devastating drug policy; integrate psychedelic therapy to heal hearts and minds; expose and transform industrial agriculture to a model that is regenerative organic and fair; and to advance other important causes. We cap executive compensation at five times our lowest paid fully vested position, and dedicate all profits not needed for the company to organizations, campaigns, and people working for a better world. Call it philanthropy. Call it giving. Call it activism. For us, it’s a crucial part of putting our “All-One!” ethos into action.
We give through two primary vehicles — the company itself and our family foundation.
