In addition to supporting the health and wellness of their customers, Gently Soap is also dedicated to supporting the health of our planet. To help reduce plastic waste, the company only offers bar soap products rather than bottled body wash. In doing so, Gently Soap is reducing their environmental impact by ten times that of their plastic bottle peers (via Gently Soap). Instead, their packaging is manufactured with environment-friendly ink, and their boxes are made up of 50% recycled material, a portion of which comes from post-consumer household garbage.
In developing the LOVE GENTLY program, Gently Soap also works with local Athens, Georgia-based organizations including Project Safe, The Sparrow’s Nest, and The Cottage to provide herbal soap products each year to under-resourced communities, including individuals experiencing homelessness and survivors of sexual or domestic violence. In maintaining these values, Gently Soap is actively working towards making a long-lasting impact for years to come.
