I interviewed Gero Leson about his book, Honor Thy Label, which tells the story of how Dr. Bronner’s global supply chain acts out the message on the bottle.
How does Dr. Bronner’s source ethical organic and fair trade palm oil and palm kernel oils for its soaps?
This makes me deeply glad. See the positive impact Dr. Bronner’s first Fair Trade project made in its community.
Fair Trade supports not only the employees and farmers, but also prospers the community around them.
There are things I don’t question until I try to explain them. Then they sound bizarre. Like where LA gets its water.
I am in Sri Lanka seeing what Fair Trade looks like at Dr. Bronner’s first sister project: the coconut mill, Serendipol.
