We are very excited to be a part of a fantastic new initiative.
Santa Ana Soaps has a great story:
For the last several years a group of us have been working in Santa Ana, Ca to build community, creativity and opportunity. Through service, urban arts and several events we engage the community and try to find new and fun ways to empower others. One project, Laundry Love Santa Ana puts us in constant contact with soap and it dawned on us: why not make the stuff. So while we are still working on scaling up to support the amount Laundry Love would need, we offer our first few batches up to you. These soaps have been handmade by our volunteers and all proceeds go to our non profit initiatives in Santa Ana, Ca. The hope is that this soap making initiative will expand to the point where we can hire Santa Ana locals at living wages and train them in all aspects of the business. A full end to end work force development program supported by a social enterprise, all right here in Santa Ana.
And the soap is amazing as well:
Santa Ana Soaps makes soaps in Santa Ana, Ca. We continually strive to ensure our ingredients are sourced sustainably, ethically, locally and organic whenever possible.
