Our mission is simple: a cleaner and brighter world. We go after this by producing detergents and cleaning products based on the Sapindus mukorossi fruit, because it has many advantages. Not only for you, also for the environment, the Nepalese farmers and the champs who work for us at our social work facility.
Seepje only uses the most environmentally friendly ingredients, like our Himalayan supershells. By paying a fair price for these shells, the Sapindus trees in India and Nepal now have added value and they are being conserved. Also, our natural ingredients have a significantly lower impact on the sewage system connected to your house!
Meet Hari! He’s our contact in Nepal. Together with his employees he harvests the shells in the indigenous forests. The harvesting and processing of the shells are ecologically certified, so that we are guaranteed a fair base product.
Together we try to create a better working and living environment for Hari and his people. The Fairtrade audit, which is compulsory for the ecological certification, helps achieve this goal. We support Hari with know how and means to run his company in a sustainable way.
In April 2015 we started the ‘Washing for Nepal’ funding campaign in response to the earthquake which wreaked widespread havoc, as well as destroying much of Hari’s workplace. With the amazing help of 1200 Seepje fans, we raised over 30.000 Euro in less than a week, which we immediately converted to relief aid. 1300 people were supplied with water, food, tents and medication.
Furthermore, we also work with Siza in Arnhem. They provide a sheltered working environment for people with various handicaps. We provide jobs for 15 people at Siza who all love working for Seepje! They assemble all the shell products and are responsible for the small-scale distribution, including to a number of retailers, as well as your webshop orders!
The positive impact we pursue originates in the core of our products and that is where we measure our success. We would like you to join us in our mission! Together we can make the world a cleaner and brighter place!
As 21-year old students Melvin and Jasper eagerly watched a documentary that showed how a Nepalese woman used a natural form of soap. They wondered: why do we use synthetic and oil based products, when a natural alternative is available?
Currently, we have a team of nine and from our Headquarters in The Hague we aspire to have a positive impact with nine different Seepjes. Our products are available in more than 1400 stores in the Netherlands and Belgium!
