Mother Nature's ingenious design.
Our soap berries are a sustainable resource, growing wild in the Himalayan foothills in Nepal. The Sapindus mukorossi trees are perfectly naturalized to the harsh conditions of the mountains. Their wind-resistant trunks stand strong; their drought-tolerant roots thrive in poor soil conditions, preventing soil erosion. And to top it off, Mother Nature even designed them to be incredibly resistant to insects, pests, and diseases. There’s no need for pesticides, fertilizers, or chemical additives.
Energizing Local Communities.
The soap berry fruit falls off the Sapindus mukorossi tree and is collected, split open, and deseeded by hand, then dried in the sun, creating a sustainable source of income that invigorates local communities in Himalayan villages.
Returning what we borrow without disruption.
Our packaging is made with certified compostable materials produced with wind energy and printed with vegetable ink. The package will decompose in less than 89 days in a compost bin or facility, and will introduce no toxic residue to the environment.
That means we need your help to close the loop! Please bring the package to your local farmer’s market, health food store, or find a local resource through www.findacomposter.com.
Why? Composting keeps waste out of landfills, transforming it into nutrient-rich goodness that the soil loves. While it may take an extra step, composting is one of the most rewarding ways to care for our planet.
Unfortunately, this is not the norm (but we’re working on it!)
Artificial, synthetic, and “natural”-labeled surfactants – compounds that break the surface tension of water and bind with dirt and stains – are made from genetically modified mono-cultured crops like corn, coconut, and palm, which introduce toxic agricultural elements into the environment. This results in the disruption of ecosystems, the deforestation of landscapes, and the pollution of natural resources.
These chemical surfactants do not break down – they move from laundry machines into the water supply, soil, and air, where they damage ecosystems and hang around in linens. From there, they come into contact with our skin, and even our bloodstream.
