Plastic-free products for positive people that clean and leave the world cleaner ✌︎
Plastic is everywhere.
Call it Sqwishful Thinking, but we’re here to change that.
Small things add up, especially when it comes to waste. That’s why we’re turning ordinary, everyday essentials into extraordinary, zero waste products that are better for you and the earth.
At Sqwishful™ our zero waste kitchen and home essentials clean and leave the world cleaner.
Our products are plant-based, plastic-free, and crafted with natural, carbon-saving materials. What materials, you ask? 100% renewable and compostable wood pulp, luffa, bamboo, and hemp.
The products' efficacy is in no way compromised by the fact that they're all-natural and biodegradable. This is a great alternative to plastic-based kitchen products, which wear down over time and contaminate the water supply (and our homes) with microplastic waste.
A sustainability leader explores how a year of unprecedented upheaval has transformed where we shop and what we purchase.
