We recently featured Jack's Soaps, an organic soap company that gives a bar of soap to a child in need for every bar purchased. SoapBox Soaps offers the same promise with their buy one, give one model. For every bar of their organic Oatmeal Clove, Lavender or Lemongrass soap bar purchased, they work with partner organizations in countries like Haiti to bring soap to children who don't have any.
Whereas Jack's Soaps are more about a simple, organic aesthetic, SoapBox Soaps uses their branding to connect customers with the people they're helping. Every bar comes packaged in a box with a smiling child and the message, "Can a bar of soap save a life? This one can." On the back of each package are facts about the lack of basic hygiene in much of the world, and a bit of the backstory on the product and how it can help.
SoapBox Soaps was founded by long-term friends and enthusiastic entrepreneurs, Dave Simnick and Eric Vong, who grew up together in Naperville, Illinois. Their company now includes three other members, and works with partners like Thrive DC, Clean the World, Loaves&Fishes, and Global Handwashing Day to provide the soap.
