Business Story

Why this business was started

I'm passionate about saving the planet, and happy so many products these days are slightly better for the environment. Yet most are aimed at an affluent market segment. The idea of a brand that promoted actionable, manageable changes to live a more sustainable lifestyle has a lot of growth potential. I developed the concept as a store that would also eventually constitute an online community of people encouraging each other to make one small change at a time: E.g., I began with reusable straws, and planned quarterly featured products / changes and social media connections featuring user stories.

The reason of selling this business

Simple! I had a baby and just do not have the time or energy to invest in building the brand. In the months before the birth, I just lacked the energy (and money, thanks to medical bills) to keep building the brand and adding to social media. I am very sad to let this go, as it's a concept I'm passionate about and believe in. But I can only have one "baby" at a time! I think this concept is valuable and deserves someone with the time to build it out in the way it deserves.

Other details about profit: The profit dropped markedly in summer 18 once I found out I was having a baby. At that point, I had to cut back on Adwords expenditures; Health-wise, I just lacked the energy for building social media. I am confident that if that had not been the case, profit would have grown more. The average profit is a bit artificially deflated because it includes months with almost no advertising or activity, i.e., times when the store was effectively on pause. Thus, the margin is an estimate.
