Why this business was started
I started this journey in 2020 during the COVID-19 outbreak that shocked people in every corner of our world. The pandemic stopped me in my everyday tracks and shifted my gears to thinking about issues experienced globally that often go unnoticed.
In a matter of months, we saw single-use face masks skyrocket in sales, consequently introducing a new kind of pollution. Our environment is clearly suffering due to our human behaviour. Everyday actions really make a difference — good or bad. The number of masks I see littered on footpaths is absolutely ridiculous — the saddest part of this being the animals and marine life hurt by this newly created waste.
Our simple, daily actions have big consequences — this is where Sili Planet comes in. I decided to launch a business aimed at helping others make the world a better place with small daily actions.
The reason of selling this business
I've been granted a new opportunity with my corporate job, an irresistible offer and one that can open new doors for me. Unfortunately, that means I'm unable to give Sili Planet the love and care it deserves and put the effort in to the business to allow it to flourish.
After months of trying to juggle both, I came to the sad conclusion that Sili Planet deserves someone's fulltime attention to allow it to grow and educate the world as it should.

How to grow this business
The eco-business is still in its really early stages with such untapped potential!
If I had the time to continue down this path, I would continue to educate people via TikTok/Instagram/Facebook on the huge impact their small daily changes at home could be making!
As for the business itself, I would look to expand our range beyond the kitchen and look at ways to go sustainable in the bathroom, laundry and even outdoors.
Skills to have
Being educated in the sustainability space is a huge plus but not something that you can't learn!

Why use Exchange?
Exchange is the largest and fastest-growing marketplace for Shopify e-commerce stores
Verified listing data
The revenue and traffic data that you see on each listing is pulled directly from its Shopify account. This means that the data has been verified. Exchange reviews and monitors listings for thorough and accurate information.
Secure messaging platform
You will be able to communicate with sellers via a secure messaging platform. After you log in and request information from a listing, sellers are notified and have the ability to respond. When you are ready, you can make an offer.
Encrypted payment capture
Exchange and Escrow.com have partnered together to provide you with safe transactions that have bank encryption, making sure that payment is securely captured. Escrow.com ensures that its users pass verification checks before transactions can proceed.
Take time to inspect the business
Once you submit payment to Escrow.com and the payment has been secured, the funds are held until you confirm that all assets received are as negotiated. You can use the inspection period to ask the seller any extra questions about the business.
Safe store transfer
When the transaction is finalized, the dedicated migration team at Exchange will begin the process of making you the new owner of the store. Buyers and sellers will be notified via an email from the Exchange team once store transfers have been completed.
Post-purchase 24/7 Shopify support
Once you log into your Shopify account for the first time and choose a subscription plan, Shopify Support Gurus are available 24/7 to help you with the settings of the store.
