An interview with Les Szabo, director of constructive capital at Dr Bronner’s, the top-selling brand of natural soap in North America.
LISTEN TO THE CONVERSATION ON:
We discussed what a soap company is doing investing in the regenerative agriculture space. How they found themselves bringing together unlikely allies like vegans and regenerative ranchers. To target a common enemy: factory farming.
Les shared how they got started (and how you can do the same), their work around regenerative animal feed and a fund they are starting together with Patagonia, which will be open for outside investors.
Too much to cover in a summary, I hope you enjoy listening to the full story!
