I once contacted Dr. Bronner’s a handful of years ago to see if they would make a donation to a reform effort I was helping out with. The inquiry was by e-mail, and I didn’t expect to hear back given the amount of inquiries I imagine they get. But, sure enough, I received a prompt reply that started out with the words ‘I am going to give you the nicest no you will ever get.’
The e-mail response went on to highlight all of the amazing things that the Dr. Bronner’s company helps out financially. Unfortunately I don’t have the e-mail, but I remember it being one of the most impressive things I’ve ever seen. Not only did marijuana reform make the list, but all types of social justice and compassionate causes across the globe. It was truly inspiring. I was a fan of Dr. Bronner’s products because they are amazing and work extremely well, but after than e-mail, I knew I would be a fan of the company for the rest of my life.
I once read a very interesting article about Dr. Bronner’s titled ‘Is Dr. Bronner’s All-Natural Soap A $50 Million Company Or An Activist Platform? Yes‘. It’s a great article that highlights some of the work that the company does to make the world a better place. Dr. Bronner’s is everything that a company should be, and is proof that big business can be done the right way.
Today the Dr. Bronner’s company announced that it will be making a sizable donation to marijuana legalization campaigns that are on the 2016 ballot. Those of course are California, Arizona, Nevada, Maine, and Massachusetts. Below is an excerpt from a Dr. Bronner’s press release from earlier today:
Dr. Bronner’s, working with allies New Approach and the Marijuana Policy Project, is dedicating more than $660,000 into responsible cannabis legalization and regulation campaigns in California, Massachusetts, Maine, Arizona and Nevada. The expected sweep of these states will exert enormous pressure on federal lawmakers to end the racist outdated policy of cannabis prohibition, that shreds productive citizens’ lives and families for no good reason, and focus law enforcement resources instead on actual crime.
A massive hat tip to Dr. Bronner’s. They continue to do amazing things, both inside and outside of the marijuana world. I encourage everyone to buy their products, which is an easy decision because they are outstanding. It’s about the easiest sell a person could ever make to another person. Buy their products for gifts too. Everyone in my family gets hit with Dr. Bronner’s stuff often, and they are always thankful for it! Know that your dollars go towards good things.
