Dr. Bronner’s liquid soap is a concentrated, effective soap that comes in a 100% recycled plastic bottle. Dr. Bronner’s has more certifications than you can shake a stick at. It is all organic (certified by two different bodies), fair trade, vegan, non-GMO, kosher and I think the soap is licensed to marry couples in CA (ok, maybe not the last one). The company is also run in a highly ethical and socially responsible manner.

A quirky, cool approach to business with a distinctive label that has the founder’s manifesto on it, the company owns its quirkiness by letting their “freak flag fly,” including a full-throated advocacy of legalizing marijuana and hemp, among other causes.

We use it for dishes, after diluting it, and it is very effective. Since you dilute it, the bottle lasts for a long time. The soap can also be used for many other purposes – surface cleaner, floors, bathrooms, brushing your teeth (I haven’t tried that one, but really, it says that, so you should go ahead and try, let me know how it works out…what, are you chicken?).

We even used the soap to wash our car! However, Dr. Bronner’s lists 18 uses and washing your car isn’t one of them, and it seems like good reason. It kept the kids cool (and busy) on a hot day but the car was a little streaky with soap residue.

All-in-all, this is a great environmentally sustainable choice for your household!
