Single Use Ain’t Sexy opens up equity crowdfunding
Sustainable soap company Single Use Ain’t Sexy has opened the flood gates for investors to buy up a piece of its ever-growing pie.
The business, which launched its dissolving hand soap tablet and reusable glass bottle products in April last year, enjoyed a number of sold-out months last year and now sees it’s sales increase an average of 15 per cent each month.
“With hand washing and single-use plastic dominating our lives for much of the past year, we’re embarking on an equity crowdfunding campaign to empower Aussies to own a piece of this environmental revolution,” said founder and chief executive Josh Howard.
“We’ve already saved up to 125,000 single-use plastic soap bottles from landfill. But with 13 billion bottles thrown out each year, it’s time to scale up our business and make a much bigger impact.”
The business’ plan is to become the global leader in the ‘just-add-water’ soap category, which helps customers to cut down on their own carbon footprint while also minimising the water needed to produce its products.
“It is a simple and frictionless way for Aussies to embrace sustainability in their homes,” said Howard.
