I know a lot of people are a little hesitant to try a solid dish soap, thinking it might be a little more difficult to use it. But once you grab a brush and gather some lather off of your soap bar to scrub a pot or pan, you will become hooked! You'll also have peace of mind knowing that for every two blocks of soap you use is preventing up to three plastic bottles from ever entering our oceans.

How do two bars replace three bottles? Liquid dish soaps are made of mostly water + synthetic ingredients that emulate what saponified coconut oil does naturally. Solid bars are concentrated clean, activated by water. Our solid bars are made of the most simple ingredients found grown naturally.
Americans throw away 35 BILLION plastic bottles every year. Only about 25% of the plastic produced in the U.S. is recycled. And guess how many companies are responsible for the plastic bottles produced? A handful. Not cool at all dudes. At least 8 million tons of plastic end up in our oceans every year. Floating plastic debris is currently the most abundant form of marine litter. This plastic waste makes up 80% of all marine debris from surface waters to deep-sea sediments.
Check out my mini list of some reasons why you should make the switch from plastic to all-natural.
Solid Dish Soap (ours)
Standard Liquid Dish Soap
|Made by hand - minimal to zero impact on environment.||Manufactured in large facilities, usually releasing harmful waste.|
|Using natural ingredients you can grow, or naturally derive ingredients.||Using cheap synthetic ingredients for profit while simulating same results.|
|Completely gone when done!||Plastic bottles remains for eternity.|
|Small passionate team invested in results and share in the benefits.||Large numbers of people working in undesirable conditions.|
|Supports minority woman-owned business committed to local growth.||Supports investors who has no idea who are the people making the products.|
|Looks cute in your kitchen, bathrooms, anywhere a sink is. Colors are neutral and basically matches anything.||I don't believe anyone would agree that plastic looks cute anywhere on anyone. Useful, yes... but cute? Not enough to justify harming our world for it.|
Here's another reason why.
We must speak with our actions.
