Pacha Soap: Our Mission Comes to Life 2013

As Pacha began to grow, the first phase of the company mission came to life. The year of 2013 was full of milestones and included the first of many international trips. Our co-founders traveled with the purpose of giving soap, educating children about the importance of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (W.A.S.H.), building hand washing stations and researching the possibility of international soap shops. Here are some favorite memories.

Abi graduated college and started working with Andrew at Pacha full time.
