dish soap

I need to find a new soap for washing dishes (by hand) that comes in a bar...any suggestions?

I'm getting near the end of my environmentally friendly liquid dish soap that comes in a plastic bottle and I would like to find something even more environmentally friendly by eliminating the plastic bottle. I like a lot of suds/bubbles when I'm washing dishes, because it makes me feel like the soap is working, but if that's not possible in bar soap form (I guess I assume it is not available) I can live.

If you have a good bar soap source for dish washing let me know!

Here's an idea I found on a blog that is also describing life sans plastic:

Perhaps not the answer you are looking for, but Ecover have refils services. You need to check their website for details.

Buy Dr. Bronners liquid Castile soap in bulk at a health store

i've heard you can use bar soap and just rub a dishcloth on it to create some lather. i'm sure Dr. B would be good :)
