How it all started...
After working in the airline industry for years, I became acutely aware of how comfortable and overly dependent we have become on disposables: single use plastic cups, tiny hotel shampoos, water bottles…the list goes on.
Then I became a mother of two and realized how much laundry soap, shampoo, baby food pouches, etc. our family alone uses. I started looking for alternatives to single use plastic options and got stuck on dish soap. I could not find an option for liquid dish soap that was not sold in plastic, worked well, and was affordable. I figured if I was struggling to find easy alternatives, so were others.
I believe we all need to be making better decisions about how we treat our bodies and our planet and I promise to do my best and to make better decisions every day. I hope you’ll join me!
Our Core ValuesWe are very careful in choosing the companies we work with. We want to support closed-loop (product packaging is sent back to manufacturer to be sanitized and reused, eliminating waste), local companies whenever possible. We want to help you choose companies that share your values as well. Use our filtering system to choose closed-loop, vegan, woman-owned, or West Coast based companies.
