After reading in an article that a staggering 5 million children die each year from water-borne illness and that up to 45% of these deaths could be prevented by simple hand washing, Hand in Hand founders Bill Glaab & Courtney Apple knew they had to help. They decided to create a household product that could also save lives and Hand in Hand Soap was born!
Hand in Hand is strategic in their donations of soap, working in schools and orphanages to provide consistent and long lasting partnerships. Since 2011, over 8 million bars of soap have been donated to children in need through two non-profit partners, My Neighbor's Children and Eco-Soap Bank.
Additionally, Hand in Hand soap is committed to creating “sustainable suds” - created using socially responsible practices, Hand in Hand soaps are all-natural, cruelty-free, and environmentally friendly.
