WHAT IS THE IMPERIAL DRIFTER ALL ABOUT?
Taking care of yourself should mean something. It isn't selfish, nor does it imply vanity. Taking the time to upkeep, maintain and polish yourself up on a regular basis is actually working on your deeper, cognitive behavior, which establishes high marks for your own esteem. This is what The Imperial Drifter is all about. Yes, shaving supplies and premium beard care products are inherently rad, but the reason we use them is actually part of a much bigger, fundamental, internal work-routine that makes us feel truly better about ourselves...which is perfectly fine.
WHY WOMEN'S EMPOWERMENT AS A PART OF YOUR COMPANY MISSION?
Because it has to be. In the U.S. and most of the developed world, we recognize that equal rights should exist between men and women. Many have produced regulations intended to fight discrimination and programs granting women access to health, education, and economic rights such as land ownership. However, in developing nations, women have fewer opportunities than men to benefit from economic development, with a much lower participation in the labor force. Furthermore, they have an incredibly hard time finding their way into classrooms.
Working closely with the founders of The Lovin' Soap Project, we as a team have had the ironic privilege to see with our own eyes the social and cultural atrocities that women are faced with on a daily basis. We can do something about it...all of us. The Imperial Drifter donates $1.00 from every product sold to the project so that we can continue to travel and create an education and business format by means of making an incredibly important trade product...soap. Doing this tackles 2 biggies in the developing world. First, and most obvious, hygiene. Second, and a bit more complex, is the revolving financial opportunities being created through starting micro-businesses via the manufacturing and trading of soap. I'm proud of that, and all of us here at The Imperial Drifter are too. We think of all the groups we have trained over the years every day...and the reason we do this is because of our recurrent financial involvement with the project here at The Imperial Drifter.
