Emlyn founded Solid Soaps for many reasons. One of them is to show up for her community and set an example for her children.

Emlyn helps to curate markets with her artisan friend, Chris @kaijucutandsew, including the OMG Squee Lunar New Year Festival in Feb 2022, 2023, and 2024 the OMG Squee Mooncake Fest in August 2022 and September 2023, Stouthaus Stoutoberfest September 2023, and Stouthaus Holiday Markets in Dec 2021, 2022, and 2024.

Emlyn is an active member of the membership committee for the Greater Austin Asian Chamber of Commerce (GAACC). She was the Women's Club Event Captain for 2023 and continues to serve in that committee. Want to meet amazing women of different business backgrounds? Women's Club is your jam! Email me if you want to attend your first meeting as my guest.

Emlyn is a member of the Filipino Young Professionals group in Austin and Austin Business Woman, and she attends networking events regularly. ABW is geared to all women entrepreneurs, whether you are just starting your business or a seasoned professional.

For each Solid Soaps Sticker sold, Solid Soaps donates $1 to the Austin Justice Coalition and Black Mamas ATX.

Emlyn is an active volunteer at her kids' elementary school.

Solid Soaps makes monthly donations to Eco-Soap Bank, a humanitarian and environmental non-profit organization working to save, sanitize, and supply leftover soap from manufacturers for the developing world.
