"A sniffy is a cotton swab very lightly dipped in an aromatic material. It is usually enough to get to know a new aroma and have some idea of how it might blend with others. "Supplies By Hello is offering sniffys for free!
Mountain Man glycerin soap by Plunk Soap
The Tax Man Soap by Soap Scentsations
We love their description:
"The Tax Man Soap. Packed with Pork, Promised to Stimulate. Available only until we use it elsewhere. $$$$$$$$ He comes dressed in sleek black, wielding his money saving tips, taunting me with his refunds, child tax credits, and 1st time home buyer tax breaks. But he's crafty, sneaky in his unperfumed ways-dipping into my paycheck, passing it along to Uncle Sam who promises to stimulate only to spend it on pork. This bar is brought to you as our own little stimulus package. No hidden pork, we tell you it's there! And at a low price even your overstimulated pockets can handle it! Go ahead come clean, find the loose change rattling in your purse...you'll find you really can love the Tax Man! And as an added bonus, for US buyers ONLY....Free Shipping on this bar only. Cause we care!"
Tickles my funny bone, that tax man. :)
So if you'd like to get informed about their missions and progress, go peruse their website and settle in. http://orangutans-sos.org
" Contact us if you would like to discuss your fund raising ideas - we can offer support in the form of inspiration, information materials, collecting tins, helping you obtain permits for city-centre collections, and even the loan of our orangutan costume!"
"Regarding your question of sustainable palm production, our Organic palm is from South America, grown in a mixed species environment with legume under story to provide nitrogen specific plants to host, and feed beneficial insects. Residue from the oil pressings is also returned to the groves to provide nutrients. The farm is in a region of the Amazon that was cleared by previous owners 30-40 years ago, and the reestablishment of a forest crop has brought back many species of birds and other plants and animals. While not as diverse as native Rain forest, it is a vast improvement over grasslands. All our conventional Palm suppliers are members of RSPO as well.We are conscious of where we purchase our oils, and will continue to seek conscientious growers, and producers."
So instead of eliminating palm from your recipes, just change your buying habit. If we all make the change, maybe WE can make the difference.
Please link back to this posting if you have a blog about soap, so we can educate and end the destruction of more animals. Thank you.
