At Makes 3 one of our core value statements is that We Reap What We Sow. We believe that by promoting goodness through our products and our company that we can promote goodness in the world at large. We take steps every day to ensure that we provide you with the very best soaps for you and your family, that we provide a healthy and inspiring work place to our employees and that we share positive, useful organic lifestyle information. Our soaps are part of a movement that is changing the world for the better and we are honored to play our part in promoting health, awareness and well-being. We are part of a community and are so excited to have you here with us.
You are what inspired us to begin our Share the Suds Project. For every 10 bars of soap that we sell, we will donate 1 bar to a locally-based non-profit, serving local families in need. At our core we are in business to serve others but we do not do it alone. Every purchase you make helps to change the world. Our goal is to help families in all 50 states!
Please email us with your favorite non-profit at email@example.com and we will evaluate adding them to our list.
