It’s almost 18 months since the COVID 19 outbreak. And, it’s been such a journey for every one of us. Among all the challenges it came with, the best part was that I got to spend a lot of time with my 4-year-old. We started doing a lot of little things together - making sandwiches, growing kitchen herbs, family game nights, pretend play and keeping our home clean & safe.
Our home became our whole world and my husband & I worked hard to keep our house clean and germ-free. We built our everyday hand wash rituals, protocols for handling stuff that came from outside, how to wash fresh produce and what have you. I know you did too.
Here we were, cleaning more than ever before. That's good, right?
No, not always. Along the way, I discovered that my everyday cleaners were full of super-toxic chemicals with scary side effects. In our well-meaning routine of scrubbing every surface, I was building up toxins in our home.
As terrifying as this may sound it’s, unfortunately, true. Research* shows that toxic chemicals in conventional household cleaners cause several health issues ranging from acute hazards such as skin or respiratory issues, chemical burns or watery eyes to chronic hazards such as cancer, fertility issues, ADHD and more. This was not ok with me.
This is where the Koparo story began.
We're obsessed with cleanliness and we're on a quest to make cleaning products that are incredibly powerful and yet safe for you, your kids, your pets and our planet.
At Koparo, we believe it's the little habits that matter. It's about the choices you make when you choose eco-friendly and plant-powered products. It's about the care you show when you use cleaners that are safe for those who do not have a voice. It's about the happy cleaning moments you create when the kids wipe a spill. Finally, it's about the habits you teach from hygiene to independence that have the greatest impact.
Join us on our quest to redefine clean and create great habits to live by. Habits that sparkle are the real shine in any home.
