PORTLAND, Ore., April 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Schmidt's Natural Deodorant, widely loved for their earth-friendly business practices and for providing a refreshing update to the deodorant category with all natural, vegan, and celebrity-endorsed products, happily announces its partnership with nonprofit Clean the World.
In celebration of Earth Day, Schmidt's Deodorant has committed to give back to Clean the World with a month-long consumer discount to raise funds to support sustainability. Beginning April 22nd, Schmidt's will offer a 15% discount on all orders made on www.schmidtsdeodorant.com using the code 'CLEANTHEWORLD'. Schmidt's will then donate 15% of each purchase directly to Clean the World in support of the nonprofit's mission.
"Schmidt's is absolutely thrilled to announce our partnership with Clean the World," says Schmidt's Founder Jaime Schmidt. "Clean the World's mission parallels our principles as a sustainability-conscious company and we couldn't be happier to team up in celebration of Earth Day."
Jaime Schmidt and the Schmidt's Deodorant team have built their brand on a track record of strategic business choices that are environmentally and economically savvy, such as the recent launch of Schmidt's Recycling Club. This pioneering program provides customers with a free return envelope to return their used glass jars of deodorant in exchange for free Schmidt's Deodorant products. The company is also certified cruelty-free by the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics (Leaping Bunny), and has been honored by the Humane Society of the United States for their efforts towards ending animal testing in North America.
As two organizations that started in the United States with similar missions that highlight sustainability and waste reduction, Schmidt's Deodorant and Clean the World aim to encourage shifts in the natural product industry that encourage sustainable packaging. A certified 501(c)(3) nonprofit, Clean the World recycles slightly used soaps and plastics from hotels and turns them into brand new bars of soap for underdeveloped countries. To date, Clean the World has donated over 300 million bars of soap to needy people in 100 countries around the world.
"As an organization founded on the concept of combining social good with solid business practices, we love partnering with like-minded companies such as Schmidt's," says Shawn Seipler, Clean the World founder and executive director. "Their support will help us change lives by providing more soap and hygiene education to at-risk people."
