This episode features Kate and Nataly Trusova, the founders of Kiwi Eco Box. Kiwi Eco Box is a monthly eco-friendly subscription box that helps you integrate zero-waste concepts into your lifestyle easily and build a plastic-free routine. Every month Kiwi Eco Box subscribers get from 5 to 7 different products, that are shipped in 100% plastic-free packaging with paper wrapping, labels, and tape — all of which are recyclable and compostable.
Kate and Nataly realized that when going zero-waste, knowing what to buy, where to buy it, and if the products are good enough is both challenging and confusing. They thought it would be great if there was a service that delivered everything they needed on a regular basis, so they decided to start Kiwi Eco Box.
Michelle, Kate and Nataly discuss how their grandma's lifestyle in a village in Ukraine introduced them to low-waste living, how COVID-19 resulted in them having the time to pursue the Kiwi Eco Box idea and how living zero-waste doesn't have to be hard or expensive.
