AHA” MOMENT:

I’m Stephanie, and I have been in the beauty industry for over 25 years.

Recently, I developed my own line of traditional shampoos and conditioners. In our facility, we offer a refill/reuse program that has been highly welcomed by our customers. Through this, I have come to the realization the need for a more environmentally friendly package, that will help eliminate the need for waste.

THE BIG IDEA:

Eliminate plastic from our daily hair care maintenance.

My team and I are working on a product development that will offer endless recyclability and reusable packaging. Our packaging will never need to find its way to a landfill!

With the reduction of water, reduction of plastics and the new recyclable packaging we hit the trifecta of global ecological focus.

WHY THIS IDEA IS BETTER THAN THE REST:

Statistics say more than 552 million shampoo bottles could be ending up in our landfills or oceans EVERY year! (https://youtu.be/AzLaGyzvjWw)

This is not bar soap shampoo! It’s a non-traditional idea that could change the industry standards of using plastic bottles.

Plastic recycling offers limited value for long term environmental responsibility. For instance, the same piece of plastic can only be recycled about 2-3 times before its quality decreases to the point where it can no longer be used.
