Are you tired of all the gloom and doom that is going around the media about the end of the world? We believe that a warning is good but fear, more often than not, paralyzes people into inaction. We were in the same boat not too long ago, when during our travels in asia, we came across multiple ingenious ways that folks had come up to solve our dependence on plastic and other pollutants (The whole list is worth a large book).
These insights got us questioning and thinking about how everyday joes like us could impact this world and help prevent the looming apocalypse. We found two interesting tit bits, one was that you didn’t have to be perfect in your sustainability measures and every small change helps. We also identified that the biggest impact area, were we could help, was with small businesses wanting to make a change.
We have spent over an year in testing and identifying the products that we wanted to start with – Our whole basement is filled with sample materials from around the globe! The two biggest challenges (As in all cases) were quality and logistics. We believe that we have finally found products that we can stand behind and the right kind of logistics with the right partners in place.
The paper straws and palm leaf plates are just the beginning of our journey, call it our First Step! We are excited about this journey and hope to be impacted as we impact you in all that you do.
