Magic All-One Chocolate bars
Comments: Founded in 1948, Dr. Bronner’s is the top-selling natural brand of soap in North America. The family-owned company produces a variety of natural body care and food products and is committed to honoring the vision of Founder Emanuel Bronner by making socially and environmentally responsible products and by dedicating profits to help make a better world.
The firm’s commitment to social justice, environmental sustainability, and progressive business practices is part of the its mission to put into practice the “All-One” philosophy printed on the company’s iconic soap labels. Dr. Bronner’s caps executive salaries at five times its lowest paid fully-vested position and donates all profits not needed for business development to causes and charities it believes in.
Dr. Bronner’s donated 40% of its profits to activist and charitable efforts, totaling 8.6% of its 2020 revenue.
If you are sweet on this company’s commitments, be sure to pick up its newest product line: chocolate! The company will offer organic, fair trade and vegan chocolate bars made with 70% dark chocolate from cocoa beans grown using regenerative organic practices and sweetened with lower-glycemic coconut sugar. Magic All-One Chocolate, expected out next month, is on track to become Regenerative Organic Certified in 2022.
