Locally made products are springing up all over the marketplace. Welcome Chicago’s Ethically Engineered, a vegan soap company that manufactures hygiene products like soap, shampoo bars and shaving foam. The company has embraced sustainable practices, reducing packaging and using renewable resources in its production. Not only do they limit the amount of packaging material, but they ensure it is recyclable or compostable. Those practices do not compromise the quality of the products but rather make them superior to their mass-produced counterparts. For a final touch, they make a Chicago flag bar of soap—something any resident should be proud to use.
