Tracing the History and Accomplishments of Dr. Bronner’s
On the side, he sells his Peppermint soap. He soon realizes that many people are taking the soap and leaving without listening to him speak. In response, Dr. Bronner begins to print his philosophy in dense, tiny script on the labels of each soap bottle.
In the meantime, sons Jim and Ralph periodically help with the business. Ralph works more with the labels and messages, and Jim works with the actual production. Ralph becomes a school teacher in Wisconsin, and Jim spends eight years in the Navy.
