Ocean’s Love

By | The Soap Box | No Comments

Ocean’s Love is a surf school for children with mental and physical disabilities that was created in 2005 by professional surfer
Angela Maki Vernon.

Ocean’s Love は、障がいを持つ子供達のために、

プロサーファー・Angela Maki Vernon さんが2005年に設立したサーフスクールです。

Her idea came after volunteering for a surf school that catered to autistic children. Her caring spirit and compassion for others lead her to create a special avenue that could connect these children with the healing power of the ocean.

アンジェラさんが設立を思いついたのは、自閉症のこども達のためのサーフ・スクールでボランティアに参加したのがきっかけでした。彼女のこどもたちへの思いやりのスピリットは、海のエネルギーがもたらすこども達へのヒーリング効果と結びつき、その活動は、彼女にとって今や特別な存在となっています。

Each year we have the pleasure of meeting with Ocean’s Love and their awesome group here at the North Shore Soap Factory. We have a great time showing the kids around on the Factory Tour, helping them to stamp their own soaps and sharing stories about their surf experiences and what they’ve learned through Ocean’s Love.

毎年、Ocean’s Love のグループの皆様と、North Shore Soap Factory でお会い出来ることを、とても光栄に思っています。こども達に、工場内をご案内したり、スタンプ押しをお手伝いしたり、サーフ体験や、Ocean’s Love で習ったことのお話を共有させていただく時間をとても楽しんでいます。

This incredible group of caring and compassionate people always leave us feeling full of hope and joy. We can’t wait to see them again next year!

この素晴らしい活動をされている皆様の思いやりの精神は、いつも私達に希望と喜びを感じさせてくれます。来年、またのお越しをこころよりお待ちしております。

Join us in helping Angela bring joy to these children’s lives…for every Ocean’s Love stamped soap you purchase, North Shore Soap Factory will donate $1 to Ocean’s Love.

アンジェラさんとこどもたちを、ぜひ一緒に応援しましょう!

A hui hou kakou!(ハワイ語で、またお会いする日まで!)

Clean The World

By | The Soap Box | No Comments

Happy Monday! We have so many new and exciting things happening here at the North Shore Soap Factory and I wanted to tell you all about our new collaboration with an awesome organization called Clean The World.MangoForwardFacing

 

Their mission is to recycle soaps and shampoo items discarded by the hospitality industry then distribute them to homeless shelters and developing countries experiencing high fatality rates due to respiratory infections and diarrheal disease.  When you purchase our Hawaiian Bath & Body® and Clean the World® partnership soaps you are making a difference!

Clean The World was started in 2009 by Shawn Seipler. His job required him to travel often which lead to his learning that most half-used soap bars in hotel rooms usually end up in landfills. Clean The World now has recycling facilities in Florida, Nevada and Hong Kong and is continuing to expand each year.

One of the most unique aspects of this incredible organization is the way they recycle the soaps. Each bar of soap is cleaned and sterilized before being ground into small pieces. The pieces are then placed into a soap manufacturing line and made into new bars!  (You can read more about this process by visiting: https://cleantheworld.org/about-us/ )
