A friend of ours who does product testing told us he had “some” surplus dried hops, and wanted to know if we could do anything with them. Given that we all hate wasting things, and we had heard that people use hops to make soap...our Hops Soap was born!
Our impact as a product making company isn't just the from the stuff we make that ends up in your home. It's also in the waste we create in the factory.
