About The Little Green Orca
People often ask why we wanted to start a business selling environmental products in the toughest economic environment, particularly while we are fortunate to have well paid day jobs. There are many reasons but one that stands out for us was during our honeymoon in 2019 we visited a dolphin sanctuary in Eilat. It was the first time we have got up close and personal to these wonderful animals, watching them happily swim about and play with the visitors. While we were enjoying the closeness between humans and animals, one of the guides told us about how so much marine life is threatened by plastic pollution. The scale is enormous and heart breaking, thousands of species of marine life are literally hanging on for survival and meanwhile the plastic waste in the ocean increases hourly. The current estimate is that a mountain of plastic waste the size of Texas floats menacingly in the Pacific Ocean causing destruction in its path. We were shocked but inspired by this and want to get the message out that.
If we do not try to change the situation quickly the damage will be irreparable. Our inaction will echo through generations depriving them of clean water, blue skies and a healthy ecosystem. The Little Green Orca was created to bring you the convenience of everyday household products but in a way that is totally planet friendly. All our products are made from 100% Bamboo, which is completely biodegradable, recyclable, and sustainable.
Our bamboo: we carefully source and make products from Moso bamboo, one of the most sustainable natural materials, with a minimum impact on nature. Our family of suppliers harvest the raw materials with utmost care to ensure the environment is protected and nurtured for continued bamboo growth. Our suppliers ensure waste water is treated with care to achieve zero discharge, thus preventing environmental pollution. We also ensure our suppliers pay their workers a decent wage and work in a safe environment.
All our products are biodegrable and packaging is compostable disposable. There is zero plastic waste. We are aiming to replace traditional day-to-day household products with our sustainable portfolio and support individuals, businesses and organisations to create a sustainable way of living.
