Ethical
Pleasant State is built around a B Corp model to ensure they meet the highest social and environmental standards, are transparent in their operations, are legally accountable and that they balance profit and purpose. The brand uses all non-toxic ingredients and ensures fair wage to all workers and diversity in their team. In addition, they support local business with their entire supplier network being Australian based.
Sustainable
Pleasant State has designed a zero-waste cleaning solution, whose bar wrappers are also certified home compostable and are sourced from the Australian company CompostMe. The brand is currently in discussions with Terracycle to implement a take-back scheme for the plastic triggers when they reach their end of life. The brand’s packaging is zero waste consisting of a recycled cardboard mailer box, an FSC certified complimentary card, and kraft tape to seal the box. In addition, they have significant transport emissions by not shipping water around the country (with their bars weighing 15g vs 550 g for a diluter 500ml bottle). Products are shipped using Australian Post carbon neutral service. The brand’s headquarters are powered with solar energy and any energy surplus being fed into the grid.
Responsible
Pleasant State’s Shareholder Deed makes clear that 75% of profits are to be invested into charitable causes, product development, and the establishment of a charitable foundation ensuring Pleasant State remains focused on its values. The brand supports their community by donating 2% of all sales to Take 3 for the Sea. In addition they have publicly committed to preventing the production of 100,000 plastic bottles in 2021, getting 15,000 customers to make the switch, and donating >$10,000 to our charity partner Take 3 for the Sea. They also provide public quarterly updates on our progress.

What our experts say...

I was head over heels about the colour coordination of the bottles with their cloths and also the overall quality of them. They feel nice in the hand and are ultimately more appealing than any plastic alternative could ever wish to be (like real cheese vs. plastic cheese!). I have previously bought colour-coded cloths and then completely forgotten which was which, so I was very excited to have the reminder right there on the bottles! Many friends have asked me about these products because they’re so visually appealing. The general purpose spray was impressive. We used it on loads of surfaces and they came up good every time. I loved the smell of them and my husband was a big fan. Smelled great, worked, looked good – what more do you need?

I am sincerely impressed by the thorough consideration of so very many aspects. In particular the 1:5 pay gap – something I haven’t heard of before. They have also clearly gone to great lengths to clarify and certify their commitments to the health of people and the planet (i.e. the CompostMe certification, working with Terracycle). I love the fact that they have set clear, measurable goals – how many bottles they’ll reduce, by when etc. You can tell that this is a company that truly considers the triple bottom line and that is something to be commended.

I absolutely love this beautiful product. It smells so nice and doesn’t leave a film on the surface after you have cleaned it like some other natural products I have tried. The bottle is lovely to hold and use and I also love that it comes with a colour coded washable cloth. I will definitely be purchasing more of this product.

I love that they are thinking of their customers’ health, which is really important to me as I have asthma and my husband has silicosis. I love that they are thinking about how products can exacerbate or cause health issues and have created a product that is safe for their customers and the environment.

A really effective cleaner which can cut through grease and pen marks on tables with ease. I love that it comes with a cloth that matches the bottle and that when I run out, I can make a whole bottle of solution more with a bar the size of a dishwasher tablet, wrapped in home compostable paper. This is zero waste cleaning at its best.

The kit came beautifully packaged with cloth and a refillable glass bottle of excellent quality that will last for years to come. I really like the outer protective sleeve and the colour coordination making it easy to identify what spray you have grabbed for what job. The concentrated bar dissolved easily to make a great multipurpose, refillable spray.

Pleasant State is clearly concerned about plastic reduction and the environment in their products and charter. Their company statements about their governance, workforce and community align with my corporate background demonstrating that to run a business like this, environmental causes are very important and so too are sound business practices to support them.
