A “New Year’s Gift”
Happy new year to you all! I hope 2020 is your best year yet! It is already starting out as a great year for 700 Rivers. Because of you, our soap collection launch in December proved to be a great success! We loved seeing your comments of how much you love the quality of the soaps and the photos of you gifting them to your loved ones!
We Did It!
A few months ago, I decided to take a huge leap of faith and expand 700 Rivers’ product line and start developing all-natural soaps. Our high quality soaps are made from all-natural materials that are thoughtfully curated with ingredients that are good for your skin with absolutely no unnecessary chemicals. These amazing soaps are handcrafted by Bangladeshi women that have escaped human trafficking and are now working with dignity in a safe working environment, and are guaranteed fair, living wages for their work.Read more
From Our Artisans’ Hands to Yours
After months of work, we are getting in our first shipment of all-natural soaps this weekend! I have been meticulously tracking our package, watching with excitement and awe as it travels around the world and then finally to its new home in Raleigh, NC. But I’m not eager with anticipation just for our soaps to arrive. I am bursting with excitement to finally be able to share them with you!Read more
Since we started on this adventure together two years ago, we have been able to help employ 70 women and divert 57 pounds of textile and agricultural waste from landfills! Your ethical and sustainable fashion choices have helped women across the world and our planet. Thank you so much for all your support in accomplishing these goals with us. However, there are still many more women in dire circumstances that are seeking fair employment through new skills and living wages, and who are trying to break out of the cycle of poverty. This is why we are working to expand our company and create a new branch of 700 Rivers!Read more

I am excited to say that I have a big announcement to share with you but first I want to take a moment to reintroduce myself and remind you why 700 Rivers began.Read more
