Dr. Bronner's

Every time I wash my hands with our Dr. Bronner's, I can't help but think about some remarkable trivia surrounding its creator:

For instance, did you know Dr. Bronner was an escaped mental patient? (all those nutty messages on his soap bottles won him a ticket to an insane asylum.) And did you know several members of his family were killed in the Holocaust? Then there's this, more pleasant piece of trivia: the new generation of Bronners, those who run the company now, donate a healthy portion of all the company's profits to charity.
Lastly, a filmmaker named Sara Lamm has a new doc on Bronner called Dr. Bronner's Magic Soapbox. Anyone see it yet? Worth shelling out $14.50 for?
