Fruit of the Vine

Known for its delicious organic Italian olive oil (below), Nudo has just launched a new organic Honey & Lavender kitchen soap that is extremely yummy, too. The process begins near the company’s olive groves in Le Marche, Italy, where the moisturizing soap is made entirely by hand, with only Fair Trade and organic ingredients. It’s gentle on the skin and the budget, at $9.49. Participate in Nudo’s “Adopt an Olive Tree” program, and you’ll receive olive oil from your tree delivered to your door. nudo-italia.com

Chocoholics for a Cause

Leslie Berliant wanted to help victims of the earthquake in Haiti, and began selling her handmade, organic Fair Trade chocolate truffles to raise money for her nonprofit, blumoonfoundation.org. But the chocolates were selling so fast that she turned her passion into a business: the Santa Monica-based Le Marais Chocolat now features unique and irresistible flavors like lemon thyme and baobab. lemaraischocolat.com
