We recycle as much as we can and are passionately committed to reducing our ecological footprint by being energy neutral and promoting alternative transportation methods for commuting (biking, walking, bus & Segway). We source as much as competitively possible from U.S. based companies.
Bramble Berry's employees are one of our most important assets. We are proud to provide a work environment where employees are appreciated, valued and given regular feedback. All of the management staff work in an open space, promoting an 'open door' policy for concerns, thoughts and feedback for staff. We promote based on merits and skill and do not discriminate based on age, color, creed or relationship orientation.
We recognize parental and family obligations of our employees and ensure that all staff members are supported by being flexible with their hours, or allowing them personal time on short notice.
Bramble Berry Inc. provides a creative working environment where all of our staff are encouraged to develop their skills, both in soapmaking and in the work environment at large.
It is our goal to make Bramble Berry a fulfilling and enjoyable place to work.
We're customer service zealots!
Bramble Berry nurtures our relationships with customers based on quality products, honesty and extraordinary turnaround. We are excited to work closely with every one of our customers soap projects, and whenever possible, assisting in meeting their soap and toiletry making goals through online tutorials, classes, personalized customer service and going beyond expectations in terms of support. We are ardent in our pursuit of the best products and go to the ends of the earth (literally!) to find the most innovative and outstanding products for you.
Supporting the community
We actively support non-profit organizations within our local community and around the world. We do this by donating financially as well as serving on non-profit boards in our local community. We are pro-active in trying to help our world be a better place for everyone.
We work with a local non-profit (Kulshan Supported Employment) to employ two differently-abled employees at Bramble Berry. Frank has been with Bramble Berry for over four years in our Pigment and Micas area. He does a thorough and meticulous job packaging your colorants. Eric has been with Bramble Berry for a little over four years as well. Eric works in our fragrance area, pouring sample fragrances. We are proud to have this level of diversity on staff.
Thank you all for your continued patronage!
Anne-Marie and the entire staff at Bramble Berry Soap Making Supplies
