This soap contains no palm oil. Palm oil plantations in Sumatra and Borneo are devastating the last remaining habitat of the Orangutan, Sumatran Tiger, and many other amazing creatures, as well as indigenous people and their culture. Over 90% of the palm oil imported into the United States comes from plantations, formerly rainforests, in Malaysia and Indonesia.

Washing is an agricultural act. Author Wendell Berry said "Eating is an agricultural act", reminding us all that every bite we take is a form of participation in the agricultural commodity. Most soap is largely made up of fats and oils grown in other countries. However, we have fats and oils right here in our bioregion, perfect for making soap with a smaller footprint! Many scientists say 350 parts per million (ppm) is the safe upper limit for CO2 in the atmosphere. Currently, our planet has 391 ppm CO2 and is rising by 2 ppm every year. It is time to rethink washing as an agricultural act and take responsibility to reduce our global carbon emissions by lessening the distance traveled from farm to bath.
