Dirt On Us
When Arlicia (AC) Chrestotholos’ boss told her she was the one actually running the company, she laughed because she knew it was true. So did her boss. In normal corporate fashion, she was fired. The next day, she started her own company.
Who’s the boss, now?

Lava Mae is a charity that repurposes municipal buses, turning them into mobile showers for the homeless and disenfranchised in the San Francisco area. Lava Mae believes that the simple act of taking a shower, which most of us take for granted, can open doors for the homeless. Their self-esteem is also boosted. With Lava Mae’s help, homeless people are gaining employment, working their way out of a life on the streets.
Organik Junkie understands the importance of not just being clean, but feeling clean; how something as simple as a shower can change your whole outlook. That’s why we make a monthly donation of our handmade soaps to Lava Mae as our way of giving back to the community. It’s not for show. It’s the right thing to do.
