Can you tell us a little about your background and where the inspiration came from for your business?

My husband Paul and I have always shared a passion for nature and environmental sustainability, and have wanted to do as much as we can to avoid causing harm to the planet. Accordingly, as we established our own family, we were constantly on the hunt for safe, toxic-free cleaning and hand and body products that not only could make our home smell (naturally) fabulous but also would actually work. We felt our sons Emerson and Arthur and our pets shouldn’t have to hold their breath in order to avoid absorbing harmful chemicals every time we cleaned the family home. But we couldn’t find any effective non-toxic, eco-friendly products. We realised we couldn’t be the only people frustrated by the lack of choice, so our solution was to set up a business to address this gap. Our goal was to make natural, pant-derived products equally if not more powerful than mainstream ones; and importantly, to make the experience of cleaning and caring for the family home a whole lot more pleasant for people. Added to which, people using our products could have the reassurance of knowing that they were not harming the planet, because all the ingredients are biodegradable and environmentally sustainable.
