This is an announcement I’ve been waiting to make for a while – and it’s finally time! Thrive has partnered with another local business, the Bagel Bakery, to create a coffee soap!
As you may know, the Bagel Bakery buys their coffee directly from the growers in Guatemala at a fair price. The coffee is then roasted in their Millhopper Plaza shop right here in Gainesville. In addition, tips collected in the store are donated to programs that help provide water filters, eyeglasses, and educational opportunities.
And starting in a few weeks, a special batch of Thrive Handcrafts coffee soap, made with the Bagel Bakery’s house coffee, will make its debut! And the most exciting part… all proceeds from this soap will be donated to social programs to help the people of Guatemala.
This soap still needs time to cure, but we couldn’t wait another minute to tell you about it. We’ll make another announcement when it’s available for sale.
