Melanie & Haskell Martin founded moksa organics with a “clean revolution” in mind. A Revolution that combines their deep love for nature, a love for activism, and a desire to be a part of a world that offers peace and well being for all species. moksa organics operates as a small business doing great things. Social Entrepreneurship is the heart of their Revolution.
Based in Gainesville, Fl, Melanie & Haskell produce and manufacture by hand thousands of their organic bar soaps, body butters and bath products each month. They use 100% certified organic ingredients, as well as sustainably sourced, fair trade ingredients whenever possible. Every purchase means, a designated dollar amount is contributed to organizations that work to promote social justice, environmental preservation & activism, educational workshops, & conservation of habitat and endangered species.
Some Moksa soap bars have texture to them. I wouldn’t call them “scrubs” because that makes them sound harsh! The bars that I have tried always have small pieces of coffee bean or other small ingredient that gives the feeling of a soft massage for your skin. These bars are also huge in size! They are each 6.5 oz. and can easily be cut in half if you want. I currently have their Abbey Road in my shower and their Amazon Lemon in my kitchen. I cut the Amazon Lemon in thirds, so it would be the perfect fit for my hands. I also enjoyed Moksa’s Christmas specialty soaps this past year and I had their Evergreen, which smelled like holiday spice, in my downstairs bathroom. I got the most compliments on that soap! It made my whole bathroom smell amazingly Christmassy!!! As you can see, I recommend Moksa soaps for every room in the house that involves a sink or shower!
contains rich cocoa butter, which is made with fairly traded ingredients of pure cocoa butter & shea butter. It also has notes of vanilla & orange. With every purchase of this soap bar $0.50 of your purchase will be donated to IFAW programs that protect endangered species & habitats in crisis around the world.
Elephants are the largest land animals on our planet. Yet the future of this mighty species is remarkably fragile: In 1900, there were more than 10 million elephants worldwide. By 1979, less than 1.4 million. Today, fewer than 650,000 elephants survive.
In addition to relief efforts such as relocation, and securing habitats for elephants in National Parks, IFAW has created their Animal Action Campaign for the African Elephant.
The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) Animal Action Education program will engage some 5,000,000 students, teachers and families in more than 15 countries to learn about and celebrate elephants, which are among the smartest, most social and emotional of all animals. The program will also introduce young people to the challenges that threaten the survival of this remarkable species, including habitat loss, poaching fueled by ivory trade and conflict with human communities.
