Our mission is simple: a cleaner and brighter world. We make detergents and cleaning products using the best natural ingredients, like the Sapindus mukorossi fruit. You know, those foaming supershells! Together, we always try to find the best balance between your washing and cleaning experience as a fan, and the positive impact that we realise with our products.
The more natural an ingredient, the less it needs to be processed. That makes a difference in CO2 emissions! Did you know that all ingredients are filtered from the water by water purification systems? When using Seepje, the waste water is considerably cleaner! It therefore takes less energy to purify the wastewater.
Our supershells are transported from the port in India to the Netherlands on the basis of sustainable biofuel. These are 2nd generation biofuels, made from waste or residual flows. Seepje purchases this biofuel through The GoodShipping Program, and they make it available to the shipping industry. With transport alone, we save about 1,400 kg of CO2 emissions every year.
Seepje costs less energy to make and less energy is needed to filter the wastewater. Plus, we compensate for our transport from India and Nepal in collaboration with The GoodShipping Program.Read more
In selecting and developing our natural ingredients, we have three main priorities: the source of the ingredients, your health and the consequences for the environment. In total, taking all the Seepjes together, we replace an enormous amount of synthetic washing and cleaning products! This way we save on fossil raw materials, like oil.
We only use 100% natural fragrances in our products, and our fabric softener is the first one to be declared 100% natural and Vegan. These types of effective innovations are available for every other producer to use. How cool is that?All the ingredients are listed on our packaging, with a translation into everyday language. Did you notice the Ecocert logo yet? This international stamp of approval confirms that more than 99% of our ingredients are of natural origin.
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 our shell products!
We choose our packaging materials consciously and keep our impact on the environment as low as possible. In 2019 we saved 39,864 kilos of plastic. That’s the equivalent of more than a million plastic bags!
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 15 and from our Headquarters in The Hague we aspire to have a positive impact with over 18 different Seepjes. Our products are available in more than 4.500 stores in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany!
