14 Apr Working Moms Finding Simple Solution to Eco-Friendly, Natural Soap
As working moms, one of the most challenging jobs is finding a soap solution that is natural, efficient, eco-friendly, and easy to use. There are many soap solutions nowadays, but they seem to have downsides. Whether it’s related to plastic bottles, preservatives or synthetic lathering chemicals, and even carbon footprint from transporting liquid soaps, it’s challenging to sort through while balancing between your career and taking care of the family. Where are the best options that match the needs of an environmental-friendly, skin-friendly solution for such a simple yet essential task in life—cleaning?
“As a mom-founded company, with 95% of top management being women, we are trying hard to balance work and life every day,” said Mooi Space. “But we have advantages because moms are always creating simple solutions to make impacts far beyond the home. Clean is Cool Soap Sticks is aiming to remove the complexities from everyday life, bring back the smells of nostalgia, and create rituals that provide a healthier living environment for the family.”
A Pack of Soap Sticks to Rethink Soap Use
Soap & hand washing is essential for the household. You clean in the kitchen, bathroom, shower—almost every room needs some kind of soap. Many people opt for plastic bottled liquid soaps, but here’s what happens when the bottles are empty and “recycled”: over a billion plastic bottles in the soap category end up in garbage or recycling every year, and 75% make their way to the landfills, which take ≈ 450 years to decompose. In addition, liquid soap bottles take 5x more energy to produce & transport, which increases carbon footprint—a shocking reality.
Mooi Space decided to create the Clean is Cool Soap Sticks to solve this dilemma. Soap sticks are tube-shaped, natural soap pieces that can be inserted into any soap dispenser. The more sticks inserted, the thicker the soap consistency is, customizable upon preference. Dissolve with warm tap water to create liquid soap or keep it solid for soap needs on the go, such as going on a trip to the beach with the children or in public restrooms. It is a natural and simple way of cleaning & washing without the harsh chemicals found in a pre-made liquid soap bottle on the market.
How to Use Soap Sticks
You can use soap sticks to refill your glass or plastic soap bottles you’re looking to reuse. It can also be used in solid form as a personal soap on the go! We will go through every method of using soap sticks with a step-by-step guide.
