What a journey... and it's just the beginning!

“In just 60 years, we’ve collectively created more than 6.3 billion tonnes of plastic waste. And almost 80% of this is estimated to have ended up in landfill or as litter, polluting our land and oceans. There’s no way around it: we need to create a circular economy, in which plastic never becomes waste.”
— Impact Hub

Reducing single use plastic is our passion.

We are all aware that the planet is in a climate crisis.

As we come to terms with a year that has reset our understanding of our immediate impact on the environment, we are more certain than ever that simple changes can create a better world.

Our circular journey started when we moved to Amsterdam and attempted to limit the staggering amount of plastic waste we produced on a daily basis. Frustrated with a lack of options that minimise single-use packaging, we developed a local solution that works for everyone (not just eco-warriors and off-the-grid gurus).

We were inspired by fond memories of the milkman who delivered full bottles to our front doors and took the empties away. Applying the same eco-friendly and efficient model to home & body essentials, we offer reusable bottle delivery to your door. All the convenience, with none of the hassle.

Our Mission

We’re here to show you how easy it can be to free your homes and offices from the single-plastic packaging. It is only in the last 60 years that it has become the default way we buy all our household essentials.

Our partners share our vision for a circular future - we only stock products with a clear conscience, all sustainable and fully traceable, ensuring that we look after people as well as planet.

Reduce plastic pollution one bottle at a time.
