Certification for corporate social responsibility
Impact, special achievements & commitmentsDr. Bronner's is a family owned activist soap company that makes socially & environmentally responsible products, and dedicates profits to help make a better world.
We're committed to sourcing certified organic & fair trade ingredients whenever possible, and have created or partnered with fair trade projects around the world: in Sri Lanka and Samoa for coconut oil, Ghana for palm oil, Palestine & Israel for olive oil, India for mint oil, and Ecuador for palm kernel oil.
Beyond ensuring fair prices for farmers, and living wages & excellent working conditions for workers, our projects combined have also invested more than $2.5 million in fair trade premiums, and have helped fund a variety of local community development projects.
These include building water systems, public toilet facilities, a maternity ward, and vital infrastructure—such as bridges, road & electricity to connect rural villages, as well as supplying mosquito nets to protect against malaria, and funding school renovations & vocational training for disadvantaged youth.
You can learn more about Dr. Bronner's supply chain practices on drbronner.com/about or in the new book, "Honor Thy Label: Dr. Bronner's Unconventional Journey to a Clean, Green, and Ethical Supply Chain."

In all we do, let us be generous, fair & loving to Spaceship Earth and all its inhabitants. For we're All-One or None! All-One!
