The most sustainable cleaner.

We use wasted food as a resource to provide an alternative for common cleaning ingredients: water, alcohol, acetic acid, and lactic acid. To make sure it smells nice, we included essential oils which are stabilized by plant-based decyl glucoside. 

Every ingredient is natural, meaning that it's bio-based, organically derived, and petrochemical free. We are also free of cruelty, sulfates, VOCs, palm oil, and greenwashing.

our ingredients

Water

Liquid cleaning products are ~90% water. Food waste is ~75% water. We’ve figured out how to isolate and purify water from food waste. So we’re both diverting food waste from landfill and saving clean water. Problem solved!

Sorry to burst that bubble, but they depend on water from your tap which municipalities expend 30-40% of its total energy consumption to clean for drinking.

Ethyl Alcohol

Among other uses, alcohol is great at cleaning sticky stuff and leaving a streak-free shine. 

Also known as ethanol, it’s either produced naturally by the fermentation of sugars or chemically from petrochemical feedstocks. When manufactured on a large scale for use as a solvent, it’s typically made from petrochemicals. Ours is a byproduct of the food waste recovery process. 

Fun fact! Ethanol is an antidote to methanol poisoning, the chemical mentioned below.

Acetic Acid

With an ‘A’ rating from EWG, it’s the active ingredient in many of your favorite natural cleaners for its solvent properties. Most acetic acid is produced synthetically using the toxic chemical methanol through a process initially developed by Monsanto in the 1960s. Only 10% of acetic acid produced worldwide is done so biologically. 

We hope to balance out that ratio by introducing acetic acid that’s biologically derived from food waste.

Lactic Acid

Lactic acid is another common ingredient in green cleaners with an ‘A’ rating from EWG. It has multiple benefits from acting as a natural preservative to removing soap scum. Lactic acid is produced industrially by either bacterial fermentation of carbohydrates or by chemical synthesis from acetaldehyde that comes from coal or crude oil. 

The fermentation process relies on raw materials (sugar or beet juice). Growing these raw materials requires precious resources. We are turning this around and using food waste as the catalyst for fermentation so these resources can be spent in other ways (like fixing the food system). 

Decyl Glucoside

A plant-based, biodegradable, and safe solubilizer we use to stabilize our essential oil fragrance in water. Decyl glucoside is produced by the reaction of glucose from corn starch with the fatty alcohol decanol which is derived from coconut.

Essential Oils

For a unique, pleasant scent we have created a blend of lavender, bergamot and mint essential oils. We've tried our best to prioritize only traceable and responsible sources. Our fragrance concentration is very low, 0.5%, and safe around pets.

This product is completely plastic and petrochemical free.

For bulk packaging, glass is the most eco-friendly and wallet-friendly choice. The label is paper, the cap is metal, and we even use a tamper-evident shink band made from cellulose. That means this bottle is 100% plastic-free! 

Compost or discard the shrink band, then recycle the label and bottle separately. Or better yet, reuse it!

If you have to clean, at least make it interesting.

Food waste and a household cleaner probably couldn't sound further apart, but they’re actually connected by water.


Liquid cleaners are at least 90% water, and food contains 75% water on average. We use organic compounds from food waste to manufacture common cleaning ingredients, then safely recover the water.  


Each bottle saves four pounds of greenhouse gas emissions and two cups of water.
