Fair and Organic Soaps

Dr. Bronner's Magic Soaps are run by the fifth generation of a soap-making family. Every product is fair trade certified and organic. The bottles that contain the soaps are made from 100 percent post-consumer-recycled plastic. The company's fair trade policy "provides for about 2,500 farmers and farm-worker families, totaling around 10,000 persons."

The soaps are all natural, biodegradable, and environmentally friendly," Michael Bronner, Director General of Sales, said.

During an interview with Coop America, David Bronner, the CEO, said that the company "donates significant amounts of our profits to various worthwhile causes and charities," the employees "
receive generous compensation and benefits, including no-duductible PPO health care and fully-funded profit-sharing." Executive compensation is "capped at 5 to 1 of the lowest warehouse position."

The U.S. needs many more companies to follow in Dr. Bronner's Magic Soaps steps.
