Dr Bronner are the world’s number 1 natural soap brand. Certified organic, fair trade, they offer a delightful range of high quality liquid and bar soap, personal care products from lotions to shaving gels to lip and body balms. The brand has achieved cult status in recent times with fans as diverse as Gwyneth Paltrow, Natalie Portman, Eminem and Bobbi Brown.
At Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps, sometimes we think of ourselves as “the fighting soap company” — because we fight for and financially support causes that we believe in. We see our company as a social engine, a vehicle for advancing and promoting positive change in the world.
Major causes we have focused on include: – Organic integrity in personal care – Promotion of authentic Fair Trade – Re-commercialization of industrial hemp in the U.S. – Labeling genetically engineered foods (those containing GMOs) – Animal rights and protection
Other areas of concern include environmental protection, youth support programs, peace and human rights campaigns, anti-poverty initiatives, and generally promoting social justice and equality at home and abroad.
“We are all brothers and sisters, and we should take care of each other and ‘Spaceship Earth!’” – Emanuel Bronner.
Since our inception, charitable giving has always been a part of the mission of Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps. As our company grows, we are honored to have the opportunity to share even more profits with those in need, and to support amazing individuals and organizations doing inspiring work to strengthen communities all over the world. We have established The Dr. Bronner’s Family Foundation to act both locally and globally. Almost all of our income that is not needed for growing the company is contributed to charitable, social and environmental causes, and to community development programs.
We have always and will continue to dedicate our profits to supporting positive development projects that improve and enrich people’s quality of life. Some examples include: building schools in the Chiapas region of Mexico and orphanages in Haiti and China, helping organic farm projects across the country, donating over 1,200 acres of land to the San Diego County Boys and Girls Club, and supporting our local food bank and other charities in the San Diego area.
At Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps, we believe that Corporate Social Responsibility is more than just a buzzword. From the products we make, throughout our supply chains, to our dedicated activism and our charitable giving, to our relationships with employees, we are committed to progressive values in every aspect of our business. We are a family business, and we consider all who work with us to be part of our extended family. We recognize the important roles of all our employees in every position within the company, and we pride ourselves on providing them with our great benefits and compensation programs.
The total compensation of our highest-paid employees and executives is capped at five times that of the lowest-paid position. Our employees receive 15% of their salary paid annually into a retirement/profit-sharing plan, up to 25% of their salary as a bonus, and a no-deductible PPO health insurance plan for themselves and their families. We implement programs within our workplace to encourage personal growth and development, and we strive to create a healthy environment for workers to thrive and take pride in their contributions to the broader world community through their work at Dr. Bronner’s.
All profits not needed for business priorities are fully dedicated to the charitable and activist causes we support – they are not kicked back as windfall bonuses or distributions to executives or owners.
