Celebrate Fair Trade Month with Dr. Bronner’s

October 8, 2019

Dublin, Ireland — This October, celebrate Fair Trade Month with personal care brand Dr. Bronner’s, maker of the top-selling organic and fair trade plant-based soap in North America. Made with organic certified and fair trade certified ingredients that nourish your skin and body while also caring for the planet, there’s something for everyone in the Dr. Bronner’s range including hand soaps, lip balms, body lotions, and sanitizers.

As part of its All-One philosophy, Dr. Bronner’s has created or partnered with fair trade and organic projects to build equitable supply chains for its natural oils sourced from small-scale farmers around the world – including Sri Lanka for coconut oil, Ghana for palm oil, Palestine and Israel for olive oil and India for mint oil. These ingredients account for more than 95% of Dr. Bronner’s raw material purchases to develop the company’s organic and fair trade supply chain. This ensures products are produced according to certified fair trade standards verified by third party certifier, Fair For Life. Through this certification, the company supports the implementation of community development projects in the regions where ingredients are grown. An estimated 10,000 people around the world benefit directly from Dr. Bronner’s fair trade projects.

This Fair Trade Month, be kind to yourself while also supporting the farmers and workers across the globe with a purchase of the Dr. Bronner’s range available in health stores and selected pharmacies nationwide.

Dr. Bronner’s is a family business committed to honouring the vision of founder Emanuel Bronner by making socially and environmentally responsible products of the highest quality, and by dedicating profits to help make a better world. The company’s commitment to progressive business practices is part of the company’s mission to put into practice the principles that inform the philosophy printed on the company’s iconic soap labels written by founder Emanuel Bronner. Bronner was a third generation soap maker who spent his life renouncing hate and war on a personal mission to unite mankind. His strong views and lectures landed him in a mental asylum in Chicago, but eight months later in 1948, Bronner escaped and continued with his message in California. During this time, he also began making peppermint liquid soap under the “Dr. Bronner’s” brand. He gave the soap away during his talks but soon realised people were taking it without listening to him speak. As a result, he started writing his philosophy on the bottle in tiny script, which is still used on Dr. Bronner’s packaging today. The company has grown to become the top-selling natural soap maker in North America and a major brand worldwide. Based on 2018 sales, a bottle of Dr. Bronner’s soap was sold, on average, every 2.2 seconds throughout the year.
