The Hemp Laundry/Garden Soap Pouch is a practical way to save your soap, and the drawstring makes a handy loop so the soap is always in reach.
Once your soap bar breaks down into smaller pieces that are difficult to use, put those smaller pieces inside the pouch. The Macrame Soap Pouch will work to contain the pieces for reuse, but it also acts as a type of exfoliating washcloth that you can use to clean yourself with the soap remnants inside.
Extend the life of your soap by keeping it away from water and let it air-dry.
Handmade using delicate crochet techniques by fair trade craftsperons living in rural communities in Bangladesh.

Hemp is an extremely fast growing crop with little to no use for pesticides, fertilisers or herbicides. It can produce 250% more fibre than cotton using the same amount of land. Cotton is a very water and pesticide intensive plant to grow. It has a much higher environmental cost than hemp which requires much less water, grows very quickly, and uses minimal nutrients from the soil. The roots of the hemp plant also aerate the soil, leaving it rich for future crops. Amazingly it also returns 60-70% of the nutrients it takes from the soil.
