Don’t feel guilty this Christmas

At The Soap Co. we have gone the extra mile to create luxury eco-friendly gifts that are good and do good.

To make this Christmas a whole lot more meaningful we encourage you to #GiveGoodGifts and make a positive statement about what really matters to you.

All of the revenues generated from our ethical body care products are reinvested to provide meaningful work to blind, visually impaired and otherwise disadvantaged people. Every bottle creates one hour of employment and we think that’s a great reason to get your hands dirty!

We recently shared our #GreenIsTheNewBlack campaign in the lead up to Black Friday and seeded the idea that the madness of Black Friday could become something altogether different if everyone thought about going green and changing their purchasing habits when splashing their cash.

And we are not alone! There are many great organisations out there that share our social enterprise ethos and that care deeply about sustainability and the planet that we live on. It’s simply a question of searching them out and buying ethically.

To help you on this journey we’re kicking off countdown to the big day with the return of our popular Christmas blog. 

Every day from December 1st to December 12th we will be posting 12 blogs from ethical businesses and social enterprises including Pebble Magazine, Blue Patch, Ethical Hour and Ethical Superstore. Please join us for a daily dose of inspiration in our twelve days of #GiveGoodGifts and to find out more about how you can have a good and ethical Christmas this year.

And there’s more! This Christmas we will be giving a luxury hamper away made up of ethical goods from social enterprises just like ours, including Tea People, Asquiths, Rubies, Forty Hall Vineyard, Miss Macaroon, Stand 4 Socks and Aduna. One lucky winner will receive this amazing prize at the end of our 12 Days of Christmas Campaign so please look out for how to enter on this page very soon.

#ShopEthicalInstead this Christmas and please say a big fat NO to mindless giving.
