The Baobab Foundation has one goal: to promote and support the conservation of baobab trees and the communities who live amongst them. Since 2014, this organization has been working in South Africa to conserve these magnificent trees while empowering women with limited employment opportunities.
Here at LATHER, we’re proud to have partnered with their Baobab Guardians Program to help them reach their goal of planting 100 trees. Our support is now centered around the Baobab Wildling Program and Ecology Research. These initiatives focus on protecting current baobab trees from damage and necessary research to understand long-term baobab survival. Additionally, we’re excited to assist their Preschool Program which identifies and provides aid to under-resourced preschools where baobab harvesters live.
We are proud to partner with Sundara, a nonprofit organization that recycles old hotel soap into new bars, giving them a second life. Sundara hires local women to do this work, lifting them from poverty with fair wage livelihoods. They distribute the soap to their communities while providing free hygiene education classes for vulnerable populations. We are honored to work with Sundara who are making the world a cleaner and healthier place, one bar of recycled soap at a time.

The heart that loves travel is the heart that can do good things for the whole community – people, animals, and the environment. And that's why we created Kind Traveler,
a Public Benefit Corporation that's the first socially conscious 'Give + Get' hotel booking platform that transforms travelers into a financial force for good.
LATHER was founded by Emilie Hoyt a migraine sufferer who learned at an early age that many of her headaches were triggered by the synthetic fragrances in beauty products; hence, she created her products using only pure essential oils instead of perfumes. To help other headache sufferers, we've introduced an all-natural salve, Clear Head Balancing Balm, to help ease tension and pressure bought on by headaches while promoting balance and well-being. To learn more about headaches causes and treatments, visit www.headaches.org or call 1-888-NHF-5552.
For years, LATHER has supported Anti-Slavery International, an international human rights organization that works to end slavery and related abuses.
