Since I first began selling soap back in 1994, *some* customers have asked, "Why don't you make a liquid soap, it's so much easier?" PLASTIC is why I don't make liquid soap. Using plastic pump containers completely flies in the face of my core product message. I don't want to be a contributor in promoting a product that adds to the vast seas of plastic waste filling our oceans and landfills. Whether you buy from me, or any other soapmaker or manufacturer, PLEASE consider the products you choose and where they, or their packaging ends up! Not thinking about it doesn't make the problem go away..... Small choices add up BIG when we all think this way! :) Sadly, all the things we throw in our recyclable containers DON'T end up recycled!
