Soapbox - on my soapbox, buying a soapbox.

A way to wash, buy locally, and give back

I shop locally as much as possible. 

When I shop at my local indie places I love a purchase that is a double dip. Meaning: If I can make a purchase at a local spot that also supports other causes - that's a win-win.

 
Soapbox Soaps now available at Green Home Experts let's me support other people in need while washing away our own summer dirt. 
 
Here it is:  FOR EVERY BAR PURCHASED Soapbox DONATES SOAP, VITAMINS, FRESH WATER to someone in need.
 
I can support a local business (and friend) and know that my purchase is giving back.  Soapbox donates internationally AND provides soap for homeless and women's shelters locally in the US. 
 
And we can clean up. Because - in the summer - we really love to play in the dirt. AND sometimes the mud. 
 
So that's first:  Soapbox let's me give back. 
 
Secondly: No eczema breakout.
 
Anyone close to me can tell you that I suffer from eczema. My children and I both do. My hands have had such severe breakouts that I haven't been able to use my hands. I wear cotton gloves regularly around town. Chemicals, new soaps, even some foods will throw my skin into a state of revolt.  
 
Soapbox passed the test. I can use it. My kids can use it. And my husband, who will only ever use a bar, loves it.  In this family of eczema sufferers - we win!
 
Third and LAST:  Oh my gosh those young professionals are adorable. Click there to go right to Soapbox's team page.  They are young. They are changing the world in little everyday purchases. I like to support new leadership.   And they are adorable.
