pocket gifts: sustainable suds.
Do a little good this holiday season, and stuff your stockings with a naturally-fragranced bar of soap, fair trade and crafted in Vermont. And the "doing good" bit? For every bar of soap purchased, Hand in Hand donates a bar to an impoverished child. Did you know that every year, 5 million people (mainly children) die of diseases caused by poor hygiene? Almost half of these deaths could be prevented by washing hands with soap. At $10 a bar, you're getting an organic soap AND donating one to a child in need. A pretty good deal, all around.
