Being in the industry since 1948 they are pioneers in the holistic health world. Paving the wave has become a trademark for this conscious company. Quality organic ingredients are only the precipices; they have a remarkable 5 to 1 salary cap between the highest salaried employee and lowest paid position. Also providing their employees with 100% health insurance, unheard of in America.
Understanding the ramifications on the planet and our orangutan friends, Dr. Bronner’s own a sustainable farm in Ghana; a region that orangutans do not live. Giving them the ability to put organic, fair trade and completely ethical palm, olive and coconut oil into their incredible products.
“Commit to near zero waste – fight climate change through organic farming and make mindful and humble use of earth’s gifts!”
Choosing to hold their liquid products in plastic (instead of glass) because of safety concerns; being around the bath/shower; Dr Bronner’s use an uncommon practice of upcycling old plastic bottles to the bottles you buy. Bottle-to-bottle recycling helps to close the loop and results in fewer greenhouse gas emissions.
Could this company could raise the bar anymore? They have; they have reduced their electricity consumption by being predominately solar powered. They reduce the water they consume by using systems they have developed, to use less and reuse; which helps bring their consumption down by 85%.
To top it all off (In this conversation anyhoo) they have almost reached their goal to reduce their waste to one dumpster a month, on the road towards their bigger goal of ZERO waste. For any company, but a company of this size… We love the effort and determination to do better, to be better.
“We are all one or none”
