In Michael’s words, “When it comes to blindness, people always think the worst. But the reality is, we can be trained. It may just take a little longer at times, but that’s it”.
This is where Soap Co, an ethical luxury brand, comes in. They provide a lifeline for people with a whole variety of disabilities. Soap Co. recognise the unique traits of employing people like these four individuals: they are committed, incredibly loyal, they respect hard work and they pay great attention to detail, because they know how valuable the job is.
In addition to being given a working place in society and living financially independently, Soap Co. has created a belonging for these people. They see their individuality and their value-add, as the warm, funny, friendly, kind-spirited human being that they are looking past their disability. They have truly set an example and a path for other employers to follow.
