By directly tying charitable donations to the sale of an everyday product, Hand in Hand is able to give soap to those in need . 50 square feet of rain forest saved for every bar purchased… 1 bar of soap and 1 month of clean water donated for every bar purchased. This company makes giving very easy. Their commitment to their cause is everywhere you look on their site- reminding you of their dedication to giving back which makes the purchase a pure joy. I wish more companies would take note of that- Buy a jar, give a jar....I'll take 10 lavender please!
