For nearly 20 years, our goal has remained unchanged. To reduce our use and reliance on plastic by providing people with beautiful, non-toxic product made from nature.

Back to Nature
With roots in the Pacific Northwest, we have a strong connection to, and respect for the natural environment. Our appreciation for the natural world inspired us to leave our careers, and focus on creating thoughtful products made from renewable resources.
Central to our core purpose, is creating product solutions that rely less on resource-intensive, petroleum-based resources, and more on plentiful plant-based materials.
Our Company Values
We set out to create a business that reflected our personal values.
• Turn people onto renewable materials and discourage the use of plastic and other harmful materials
• Support organizations doing good work and give back to the causes that matter
• Treat people fairly and provide opportunities to others
• Create products that are affordable and accessible
We thank you for supporting what we do.
