After 3 years of brainstorming for an idea of company that could make a difference in the world, the founders of Hand in Hand Soap learned of the startling statistic of the over 5 million people who die each year due to diseases caused by poor water quality and lack of proper hygiene. Perhaps even more startling is the fact that half of those deaths could be prevented with just a single bar of soap. Thus the Hand in Hand one for one soap concept was born. For every one for one soap purchased, Hand in Hand will donate the same bar to save a life.
Visitors to the Hand in Hand website can purchase their one for one soap in packages of two, five and ten bars. The current scent available is a delicious orange blossom that will leave you smelling and feeling spectacular! Hand in Hand also takes an eco friendly approach to their one for one soap. Not only is the product made from all natural ingredients, but every ingredient is harvested and grown in an environmentally friendly way. In addition, all Hand in Hand soap is fair trade certified and shipped using eco friendly packaging, comes with a free carbon offset, and a portion of all proceeds is used to save 50 square feet of rainforest for every bar sold.
The Hand in Hand business philosophy is based on sustainable giving. By directly tying charitable donations to the sale of an everyday product, Hand in Hand is able to give soap to those in need and save lives without depending on a single donation. It also provides an opportunity for consumers to turn an everyday purchase into a life-changing gift. By purchasing your one for one soap from Hand in Hand, you can save a child’s life.
