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. We had really grimy windows in our shower, with soap scum on them since moving in; this spray got them to come up an absolute treat without giving me a high-tox head spin in the process. I didn’t have to use excessive elbow grease to achieve the desired result either. Really liked the smell and it left everything all sparkly.

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. The brand has also clearly gone to great lengths to clarify and certify their commitments to the health of people and 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 love the smell of this product, no more over-powering bathroom cleaners! I like that it foams up in the bottle and although it is mixed (tablet and water) the solution doesn’t separate or go funny in the bottle when it has been left sitting. The spray bottle is easy to hold and use and I love that it has a corresponding (same colour as the bottle) reusable cloth so that you don’t get your bathroom cloth mixed up with your kitchen one, helping to have a sanitary home. 

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.

Having my cleaning products smell divine, work super effectively and in beautiful containers definitely brings joy to something normally lacking. My favourite bit about this beautiful product however is that I can hold a year’s supply of refills in the palm of my hand, saving on carbon miles, storage space and landfill. This is the complete package and I’m a huge fan.

A delightful zero waste, non-toxic solution for home cleaning. The bottle is robust with a silicone sleeve to prevent breakage… I can see it lasting a while. I loved the ritual of adding the bar to the water. The spray itself smells incredible and is effective at removing grime in the bathroom – all surfaces are sparkling.

This company truly goes above and beyond to be 100% sustainable, ethical and responsible in every way that they possibly can. I’m so impressed.
