Meet our new supplier CLARITY–The Soap Co. who are changing the lives of those in need

Thursday May 17, 2018

Guest amenities, like scented soaps, shampoos and skin moisturisers are commonplace on the bathroom counters of hotels and restaurants. However most recently there has been a demand for more ethical products, which are products that are not harmful to the environment and society.

A recent article from news website Raconteur revealed that 54 per cent of consumers are seeking products that are ethical. The article continues to say that the ethical products and services market in the UK are now worth £81.3bn up 9.7 per cent.

Our new supplier CLARITY-The Soap Co. is an ethical luxury brand that creates sophisticated handmade body care products to nurture and care for your skin.

What differentiates CLARITY-The Soap Co. from other soap and cosmetic brands is that they are a thriving social enterprise that creates training and work opportunities for blind, visually impaired and otherwise disadvantaged people. People with disabilities unfortunately still face barriers in trying to find work, but businesses like CLARITY-The Soap Co. are providing work opportunities for this marginalised group. In 2017 alone, customers using CLARITY-The Soap Co. helped to create over 10,000 days of meaningful employment, changing people’s lives for the better.

More and more organisations are embedding their Corporate Social Responsibility into their supply chains and making it a fundamental part of their organisational practices. Whether you are in the retail, travel, leisure, quick service restaurants and pubs, hotel, restaurant or contract catering sector it’s never been easier to switch your soap for social good.
