WHAT INSPIRED THE LAUNCH OF PODSY?
The Podsy Founding Families answered many important questions during development of Podsy™ Cleaning Systems. They all circled back to what is best for consumers’ wellness, pets, planet, pocketbook, and ultimately our families. The message is simple. You should not have to sacrifice quality when looking for an eco-value cleaning solution.
WHAT DOES SUSTAINABILITY MEAN TO PODSY?
At Podsy sustainability has two core principles: The health and wellness of consumers and their families along with products that enable reduction of waste and carbon neutrality. Our non-toxic formulas are child and pet safe, with 100% all-natural formulations coming soon. Podsy bottles are designed to be refilled and reused for years. This helps keep bottles and packaging out of landfills when compared to single-use bottles. They also use less shelf space and weigh much less than Ready-To-Use bottles. It’s better for you and our planet.
WHY DO YOU PARTNER WITH GREEN SEAL?
It was important to hold ourselves to a higher standard. Partnering with Green Seal allowed us to quickly understand where we can improve and where we will have success. Verification of 3rd party performance testing is also very important.
WHY DO YOU THINK CONSUMERS ARE RESPONDING TO REFILLABLE CLEANING SYSTEMS RIGHT NOW?
Refillable, and specifically pod-based refillable cleaning systems are coming of age for several reasons. After more than a decade of success within the laundry and dishwasher space, trust has grown. Changes in environment are clearer to many who may previously have been reluctant to embrace new products. Adoption is happening faster as value plays an impactful role. Refills are cheaper than buying bottles many times over. It’s an exciting time and consumers are driving the demand.
WHAT VALUE DOES THIRD-PARTY CERTIFICATION BRING TO A CLEANING PRODUCT?
To us, it’s important to signal that we have aligned ourselves with successful trusted experts specializing in household cleaners. We do more than just say we are sustainable. Our certifications validate successful results from ongoing testing. They allow us to continuously improve our product lines while measuring with the highest standards in leading our industry.
WHAT ACCOMPLISHMENT ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF FROM A SUSTAINABILITY STANDPOINT?
We’re proud of developing a cleaning system that eliminates Ready-To-Use (single-use) bottles at scale while increasing value for consumers and the efficacy of cleaners.
WHAT’S NEXT FOR PODSY?
Product development is ongoing and we are even more excited about our 2022 product lines. The Podsy Pure line of cleaners with all-natural ingredients and enhanced packaging across all product lines will further highlight our focus on sustainability.
