Who Are Your Suppliers?
We take pride in sourcing from phenomenal, sustainable suppliers who care about people and the environment as much as we do. We source locally whenever possible and purchase our products from a variety of women and family-owned companies. We evaluate all of our suppliers on the ingredients they use and the sustainability practices that they employ to ensure that we are offering you a quality product that is as close to zero waste as possible along its entire supply chain! Learn more about our suppliers below and what they put in (and leave out!) of their products.
Our largest supplier is Rustic Strength, a family-owned company located in the Ozarks. We source hand soap, dishwashing soap, liquid laundry detergent, lotion, liquid shampoo and conditioner, dryer balls and body wash from Rustic Strength. Rustic Strength offers an innovative close-loop system, so we return our bulk containers to be refilled and reused. They only use the highest quality ingredients that are good for you and the planet.

ETSW is a family-owned company in Alcoa, Tennessee. After Phil and Sunny Tune's son was a toddler, they learned he had significant allergies and became obsessed with reading labels on the products they brought into their home. They started making their own soap in 2016 with real oils and saw an immediate and significant improvement in their whole family's skin health. They make small-batch, ethically-sourced, sustainable, and eco-friendly concepts. We source shampoo and conditioner bars as well as beard oil from the Tunes!

Kay and Matt started Green Llama to combat our single-use, throw away plastic problem. As a neuroscientist and occupational therapist who care deeply about the environment, they worked hard to develop biodegradable cleaning tabs that cut down on plastic, prevent water from being shipped, and that work! Made up the road in Johnson City, you can simply drop one of these cleaning tabs in a 16 oz spray bottle, fill with warm water, shake, and get to cleaning once the tablet is dissolved!
