Redbudsuds is teaming up with Adventure Mamas Initiative to bring you an extra special new shower bar, launching on Earth Day.
We've created a fun way to celebrate Mother's Day this year!
You are officially invited to support the mothers in your life with a spirit of adventure - whether that’s your mom, yourself, and/or Mother Earth. Here's how:
Who are the Adventure Mamas Initiative?
AMI is an non-profit organization that exists “to support maternal wellness.” AMI is “redefining motherhood by creating a world where women feel empowered to prioritize their own wellness” through “access to nature and challenge-based experiences, educational resources, and a dynamic community of mothers.”
With local groups all over the USA, Adventure Mamas connect and share stories on Facebook and Instagram, like this from @mumsgoneclimbing. Joining for meet-ups is easy and free.
What is Redbudsuds?
(In case you didn’t already know!) Redbudsuds is a soap company that exists to help you simplify your routines, connect with what matters, and protect the world we love. We specialize in a 4-in-1 Shower Bar that helps you get clean no matter where you are with no plastic packaging, only trustworthy ingredients, and a simple adventure-ready delivery system. As members of 1% for the Planet and partners with non-profits like Leave No Trace and the Alliance for the Great Lakes, Redbudsuds shower bars turn every single shower into an easy way to support clean water and protect wilderness.
Why are we collaborating?
The ultimate goal of our collaboration with AMI is to bring awareness to maternal health and the importance of self-care as a way to bring about the health of our families and our planet.
We don’t just want to celebrate our amazing earth on Earth Day, or our mothers on Mother’s Day. We recognize that the care we take for ourselves - as we become more healthy - allows us to open up and care more deeply for the world around us. Showing our appreciation for all that is "mother" is something we can do every day to make the world a better place.

How You Can Help
- Show Up for Your Mother: Whether you have a mom, are thinking of being one someday, or already are one, definitely check out the Adventure Mamas resources - both to gain awareness for yourself on the issues, as well as to share with mothers in your life!
- Use and/or gift a badass mama in your life our new Grit and Grins Shower Bar (launching Earth Day 2019). 50% of the sale of each bar will go to the Adventure Mamas Initiative and help create resources, experiences, and community for maternal wellness. Our goal is to raise $3500 for AMI by May 31st. Help us reach our goal!
- Be mindful in your daily routines. It’s no small thing. Creating healthy everyday habits is a huge opportunity to show self-care and be ecologically responsible. Take an inventory: consider your personal care, the food you eat, the transportation you use, the home you live in. You vote with your dollar every day.
Just remember: you don’t have to “do it all.” Just do one thing. One little thing. It can be as simple as how you shower.
In the coming weeks of the #ShowUpForYourMother campaign, we’ll be sharing more stories and simple ways to show kindness to our wonderful Mother Earth as we adventure every day.
Show love and love will grow.
