Liz Thompson recently introduced us to Further Soap, a biodegradable soap crafted from glycerin left behind in the bio-fuel making process. She shares the fascinating story of a husband and wife team who find a way to transform grease from Los Angeles restaurants into automobile bio-diesel and eventually into Bergamot-scented hand soap.
If you thought this “perfect sustainable circle” couldn’t possible get any better…it just did. For each bottle of Further Soap you purchase on Wednesday April 22, you will receive one bottle free. And you don’t even have to pay for shipping!
At the moment, hand soap is Further Soap’s only offering, but other personal care products such as shampoo and conditioner are coming soon.
