The creation of the All-One Ark was inspired by the late Jim Bronner, son of Dr. Emil Bronner and father of current Dr. Bronner's president David Bronner and vice-president Mike Bronner. In the 80's Jim founded his own chemical consulting company, Bronner Chemical, where he developed the industry standard fire-fighting foam concentrate used by fire departments around the country. He modified a version for making artificial snow for Hollywood, and David and Mike grew up blasting foam in all kinds of situations: friends and family at home, inner city day camps for kids, a school for the deaf, and anywhere there was a bunch of kids ready to have fun. Blasting foam on each other was as joyous as knocking over a fire hydrant and frolicking around. The All-One Ark represents the perfect marriage of Dr. Bronner's All-One vision and Jim Bronner's foam-making technology. We are All-One! when we foam one another in joyous abandon. Dr. Bronner's is a unique for-profit company, that caps all executive compensation at 5 to 1 to the lowest paid warehouse position, and dedicates all profits not needed for business development to worthwhile causes and charities worldwide.
