Now making a difference can come as easy as shopping. Since late November, Anderson’s Bookshop’s Two Doors East has sold SoapBox Soaps. This is a business that for every bar of soap purchased, will donate one to a child in need. Two Naperville residents started this business two years ago.
Millions of people around the globe live in unhealthy hygienic conditions and many diseases could be prevented with clean water and a bar of soap.
“SoapBox was an idea that we could change the world through every day consumer purchases,” said David Simnick, co-founder of SoapBox Soaps. “So something as simple as a bar of soap, could save lives.”
At Two Doors East, you can buy bars of soap in a variety of scents like oatmeal clove, lavender, and lemon grass. The companion bar SoapBox sends are unscented and made with organic materials so it doesn’t pollute the water.
Anderson’s decided to start selling the soaps because they supported the mission it stood for and because it was created by Naperville Natives.
“I feel good about offering it especially in downtown Naperville,” said Lyn Dulkinys, Sidelines Gift Buyer for Two Doors East. “I think it’s a community that can support something like that.”
So far the product has been a success at Two Doors East and they hope to expand the product further.
