The Handcrafted Soap & Cosmetic Guild is a non-profit trade association that services the handcrafted soap and cosmetic industry. The mission of the organization is to help promote and educate both members and the public about the handcrafted soap and cosmetic industry. They are a tremendous resource for all of us in this industry.
Currently, HSCG is helping bring awareness to the huge issue of unrecycled plastic waste. This type of waste doesn't break down like paper and can take 10-20 years or more to decompose. As a result, many areas of our planet are being affected, especially our oceans.
One way we, as consumers, can help is by reducing the amount of products that we purchase in plastic bottles that are later thrown away. Purchasing bar soap that is packaged in biodegradable packaging is one way to help in this endeavor. At DHC Soap and More, we are happy to support this initiative, and we have eliminated plastic packaging on our homemade bar soaps. Each bar is now packaged in paper boxes.
