“The Fighting Soap Company”
At Dr. Bronner’s, we sometimes think of ourselves as “the fighting soap company” — because we fight for and financially support causes that we believe in. We see our company as a social engine, a vehicle for advancing and promoting positive change in the world.
Major causes we have focused on include:
- Organic integrity in personal care
- Promotion of authentic Fair Trade
- Re-commercialization of industrial hemp in the U.S.
- Labeling genetically engineered foods (those containing GMOs)
- Animal rights and protection
Other areas of concern include environmental protection, youth support programs, peace and human rights campaigns, anti-poverty initiatives, and generally promoting social justice and equality at home and abroad.
Please take some time to explore the causes and campaigns that are close to our hearts as a family business.
Dr. Bronner’s is fighting for a marketplace where organic consumers are not misled into purchasing bogus “synthetic-schlock” products masquerading as real certified organic personal care.
In 2006, Dr. Bronner’s committed to sourcing our major raw materials – over 95% of our annual agricultural volume – from certified Fair Trade projects around the world that ensure fair prices, living wages and community benefits for farmers, workers and their families.
At Dr. Bronner’s, we want to educate the public about the importance of mandatory GMO labeling and encourage everyone to educate, donate, volunteer, and get involved at both the state and national levels in the growing movement to require the labeling of foods containing GMOs.
In addition to producing the highest-quality soaps that are free from animal ingredients and are certified free from animal testing with the cruelty-free “leaping bunny” logo, Dr. Bronner’s is proud to support leading animal advocacy organizations that are working to reduce the suffering of farm animals and to advocate for a transition to healthier and more sustainable food systems.
