Lindy LaRoche is a master organic soap maker, proud mama and founder of Poppy Soap Co. A few short years ago, Lindy was climbing the corporate ladder – then her son was born. As many moms can relate, life as she knew it changed forever. Instead of endless workdays and overnight travel, Lindy wanted to be home with her son, leading by example.
Inspired by a desire to follow her dreams so her son knew he could follow his, Lindy left the corporate world. She knew she wanted to create an organic soap line with the power to change lives. What began as a humble idea taking root in Lindy’s garage has grown into a thriving, eco-friendly microbusiness called Poppy Soap Co.
Located near San Luis Obispo, California, Poppy Soap Co. creates quality, sustainable organic soaps, and gives back to local communities through a unique program called “Bar for Bar.” For every bar of soap purchased online or in stores, Poppy Soap Co. donates a bar to a women’s shelter. To date, the company has donated more than 6,000 bars to shelters across the country. In November of 2013, Lindy raised more than $10,000 for her give back program through crowdfunding platform Indiegogo. See the campaign here. She now gives 5% of Poppy Soap Co. profits to U.S. Women's Shelters across the nation.
Poppy Soap Co.’s commitment to quality ingredients, sustainable business practices and giving back to local communities, has ignited and activated a tribe of advocates, supporters and loyal customers around the world. As a result, Lindy is passionate about sharing her knowledge and experience with others. She mentors other female entrepreneurs on how to take action and profit from their give back, heart-centered businesses.
Lindy welcomes to the opportunity to speak to women and entrepreneurs about following their dreams and building a profitable, heart-centered business through people, passion and purpose.
