Our dream is to offer fuss-free plastic-free alternatives to everyday household items that we can all afford

We are a wife and husband team and their dear friend. We met working on music festivals, where we witnessed firsthand the amount of unnecessary plastic that ends up in landfills and pollutes our planet. Travelling to stunning places that were ruined by trash and coming to terms with statistics like “by 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in the world’s oceans” spurred us on to take responsibility to make changes in our own lives.

We were shocked by the amount of plastic we had in our own households when we actually stopped to take a look. That’s when we actively started looking for everyday swaps we could make. It turned out to be pretty awkward to source some stuff that should be basic. We found ourselves paying way too much for postage because we either couldn't find what we needed in Germany (C and Tam live in Berlin), or were paying prices that felt very high compared to non-sustainable alternatives. So we decided to take matters into our own hands and try to offer an accessible alternative, so that we can all make easy swaps to help the environment.

We’re far from perfect and we still have plastic around the house. So what we’ve decided to do is consume less, (ref)use (single-use plastic) more, repurpose what we can’t reuse and then, failing all of that, recycle. It’s only a start but if we all make small changes bit by bit, we believe that we can get to where we need to be.

Our dream is to offer fuss-free plastic-free alternatives to everyday household items that we can all afford. We’re on a learning journey and wholeheartedly welcome any ideas for how we can improve.

Please feel free to contact us in case of any questions or feedback you may have, we look forward to connecting with you.


Sending love and good energy,

Tamara, Carlton and Ema
