Our Charity Work
Charity work is huge driving force for us at Ape. We know that the bigger we get, the more good we can do. This helps push us forward, with love in our hearts, trying to make the world a better place.
Usually you either have a business, or a charity organization. Businesses are supposed to be focused on making as much money as possible, while charities are focused on doing as much good as possible. We believe we can create a blend of the two. A company that truly cares about people, animals, and the planet.
"Do a little bit of good where you are.
It is those little bits of good,
that overwhelm the world"
Trew Love Sanctuary
Ape's owners Trish and Drew also founded a 501c3 non-profit farm animal rescue called Trew Love Sanctuary. Trew Love has taken in over 100 animals, giving them a forever home, and kept them safe and happy. You can learn more about Trew Love by following @trewlovesanctuary on Instagram. If you really want a behind the scenes look at what it's like to rescue animals and run a sanctuary, check out our other podcast Compassion and Chaos on Youtube, Apple and Google podcasts, and Spotify.

Helping those without Homes
We strongly believe that all people deserve safety, healthcare, and a home. While we're not big enough yet to build shelters or pay for people's medical bills, we are able to provide some people with cleanliness. Soap shouldn't be a luxury, and that's why we donate our soap cut-offs and scraps to homeless shelters. You can't be healthy unless you're able to clean yourselves, and if you're not healthy, you're stuck in an endless loop that's extremely difficult to get out of. As we grow, we want to do so much more, including formulating a soap that's cheap enough to make that we can mass produce it and send it to those in need all across the world.
Saving the Planet
The Earth is in trouble. Our home is in trouble. Climate change is the biggest threat to the planet and the animals and people who live on it. It's up to each and every one of us to make smart choices every day that have the smallest impact on the environment possible. That's where we come in.
We're working on becoming the biggest eco-friendly company on the planet. When people chose our products over others, they're making a decision to not harm the Earth. All of our products are natural and have no synthetic chemicals, all of our packaging is recyclable (even our labels), and whenever possible we use biodegradable packaging. The bigger we get, the more we can expand and innovate, and bring a wide variety of eco-friendly products to people all across the world.
It's All Thanks to You!
When you choose Ape, you not only choose to use healthy and safe products, you also choose to help make the world a better place. None of our charity work could happen without the support of our amazing customers. We can't wait to show you our future plans, and we promise to never stop
trying to make the world a better place. We will never, ever compromise on our ethics.
