Our Ten-Percent Promise
Every year, we donate ten percent of all profits to featured nonprofit organizations - living our promise to change the world. We choose organizations based on their funding impact and their purpose, and we tend to focus on organizations that directly help people in need via a service or product.
The organizations featured below have received Gratitude soap in the past. We are always looking for organizations where our donation would make a difference.

As soap makers, we are down for any cause that involves getting soap to people in need. Even better, Clean The World does so with a zero-waste philosophy - which is something we can all have gratitude for.
So far, they have donated over 11 million bars of soap + 325,000 tons of shampoo and conditioner while simultaneously eliminating 750 tons of waste. Their distribution channels funnel through more than 65 countries worldwide, too. How do they accomplish this? By recycling soap and shampoo products that would otherwise be discarded by the hospitality industry.
Even better, 95% of money donations and fees go directly to their operational costs. Which means we can all rest assured that these guys and gals are spending their time, energy, and resources in all the right places.
