Baudelaire and the Community
Baudelaire supports non-profit organizations and the environment. According to the Baudelaire website, while the company imports globally and sell nationally, when it comes to non-profits, the company thinks locally/regionally. Please take a few minutes to review Baudelaire’s statement about its green efforts, and its commitment to non-profit organizations.
“While we import globally and sell nationally, when it comes to supporting non-profits, we try to think locally/regionally. This involves donating thousands of dollars in product and good old cash to groups working to improve education, healthcare, the arts, the environment and more . (It’s impressive how many of these groups there are in our relatively small community!) We also support our employees’ active participation in local non-profit organizations. In fact, we offer all employees eight hours of paid work time to volunteer. Plus, we regularly achieve 100% participation (with a 100% employer match) in our local United Way.
What about green? (Customers often ask.) Well, we have always collected and re-used packing “peanuts” before they land in the landfill. We insist that all our suppliers use PET bottles because they are the easiest to recycle, don’t leach and use less energy to produce and ship. The rest of our packaging and marketing materials is also completely recyclable and typically printed on recycled papers.
These activities go both ways. Certainly, they help the organizations involved…and even the planet a little bit. But, they also make Baudelaire a better, more positive, vibrant place to work.” – By Baudelaire, www.BaudelaireSoaps.com
