Bathing Culture was born out of our love for planet and people alike. At every opportunity we have pushed ourselves to cultivate a product and community that is inclusive, joyful, and dedicated to making a better tomorrow for everyone. It wasn’t enough for us to simply make a “great soap.” We want to spread awareness—to empower people—to build community around love.
Often overlooked or lost in these conversations are marginalized individuals or groups—those who are disabled, poor, immigrants, indigenous, refugees, queer, gay, gender non-binary, trans, among others. We’ve always believed taking care of our planet includes people and planet.
That’s why we’ve partnered with the San Francisco LGBT Center to donate a portion of Love is Rad pin proceeds to their Transgender Employment Program— a collaborative program designed to help create inclusive workplaces and jobs for trans individuals. Buy a Love is Rad pin and help us support trans worker empowerment!
At particular risk are transgender and non gender binary conforming individuals. 50% of trans people report being unfairly fired or denied employment. 78% of trans people report workplace harassment and 75% of trans K-12 youth face severe harassment. This can make finding and keeping a job an incredibly daunting task for trans individuals.
