There is a lot of great skincare at Whole Foods, but The Right to Shower gives back in a major way! This post was sponsored by Mirum, but (as always) all opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that make Lake Shore Lady possible!
If you’ve been following me a while, you know that giving back is really important to me. When I sell clothes instead of drop them at Salvation Army, I usually donate a portion of those proceeds to organizations I want to support. I wrote a whole post about how to help during the polar vortex and it warmed my heart every time one of you told me it inspired you to donate, too. And if brands are creating quality products AND giving back, that’s a no brainer for me.
The Right To Shower
You may have seen The Right To Shower soaps at Whole Foods without even realizing it… but I am telling everyone to look for it now! In 2019, this new line of head-to-toe cleansers is donating 100% of its proceeds to mobile shower organizations across the US to help turn ordinary trucks and buses into mobile showers for people living on the street. Why? Because they believe access to cleanliness is a fundamental human right. AMEN.
Think about it, how refreshing does a good shower feel? I know I look forward to it every single day and it significantly affects my confidence and self worth – two things that people experiencing homelessness could use more of.
But the 550,000 homeless Americans have enough trouble finding food and shelter, let alone somewhere to get clean. So The Right To Shower has partnered with companies like Lava Mae to bring “Radical Hospitality” to the streets. Their mobile showers are individual, safe, clean, and fully-equipped bathrooms with showers, toilets, and sinks. It may sound simple, but they believe a simple shower can help these people reconnect with dignity and hope again.
And speaking of dignity and hope, those are two of the fragrances in this skincare line! We have Dignity in our shower and it smells amaaazing, but I can’t wait to try the other three, too!
Dignity: Charcoal + Cotton Blossom
Hope: Aloe + Dewy Moss
Joy: Tangerine + Honeysuckle
Strength: Red Ginger + Currant
I also love that The Right to Shower products are thoughtfully made. The ingredients are naturally derived, sulfate-free, paraben-free, and phthalate-free. They’re also 100% vegan and Vegan Action certified, with 100% recyclable packaging. Ethical, sustainable, AND they give back? SIGN ME UP!
Oh, and it’s multi-purpose! They made it so you can use it on your body, hair, face, and hands. I haven’t used it on my hair, but it’s an awesome body wash. It’s really moisturizing and the Dignity wash has a really subtle and fresh scent. Big fan.
Obviously giving back is important, but I love brands that make it a part of every day life. It would be great if I could donate to every incredible organization in the world, but I don’t have endless funds! Companies like The Right To Shower make it easy for all of us to contribute to issues facing those less fortunate, by providing something that we all need to buy anyway.
I’m pretty sure every single one of you has body wash or bar soap in your shower, right? Why not purchase one that helps people living on the street? It’s a small shift that can make a huge difference.
And you can pick it up right at Whole Foods! How easy is that?! No need to pay for shipping or wait for it to arrive when you need it right away. It’s next to all of the other skincare at Whole Foods and you can pick up with your groceries!
Are you more likely to purchase from companies that give back?
I know I am, but I’d love to know if that affects your purchases at all! Comment below if you have some thoughts on that topic!
