The Pleasant Journey

If not us, then who?

Never mind a global pandemic, 2020 was the year we set out to revolutionise the way we clean our homes, and what a wild ride it's been. It all started with a crowdfunding campaign. Now, we're delivering planet changing products to thousands of forward-thinking Australian homes!

Our Why

The Pleasant State purpose

Honestly? Because it seemed like a no brainer. To do this right, we've had to start out small, but we have big plans to be the best. We all know that in this current climate, keeping your home and family healthy is more important than ever, but this doesn't mean we need to stock up on plastic baddies that are filled with toxic chemicals. That's not doing anyone any favours! Why go backwards when we can go forwards?

Our founders Ami and Sian banded together to create a sustainable solution when we needed it most. They've been blown away by the support of the community, suppliers and basically everyone they meet!

Pleasant State is changing the way we clean our homes. Cleaning products are no longer a necessary evil that's hidden under the kitchen sink. Instead they're beautiful, waste-free and non-toxic products that you can proudly display in your home.

A Pleasant Letter

We’re so glad you’re here!

We’re Ami and Sian, the founders of Pleasant State. We’re on a mission to change how people clean their homes...for good! Our aim is to prove that doing good is good for business by balancing people, planet, and profits. 

 

In 2019, Ami was dealing with chronic headaches. After consulting with healthcare professionals, she began working to remove plastics and nasty chemicals from her home. However, when it came to cleaning products, she couldn’t find any healthy, zero-waste, and effective solutions in Australia. We quickly realized that traditional cleaning products and their plastic packaging are major contributors to indoor air pollution and are making Australians sick. So, we did something about it!

 

We created Pleasant State, Australia’s first concentrated cleaning bars that dissolve in tap water to make healthy, plant-based, and zero-waste cleaning solutions that actually work! Our ridiculously good-looking just-add-water products make it easy for you to do the right thing for people and the planet without compromising on effectiveness or convenience.

 

Despite bootstrapping and pre-order crowdfunding Pleasant State to date, we’ve achieved incredible results and made a heck of an impact! In the two years since we began shipping our revolutionary products, we went from Ami’s garage to our Sunny Coast warehouse, and now our products can be found in over 20,000 homes. We’ve stopped 150,000 plastic bottles from entering landfills, generated 75,000 liters of toxic-free cleaning solutions, and raised over $45,000 for charities, including Take 3 for the Sea. We are also proud to be Australia’s first certified B Corp and a 1% for the Planet member.

 

We both relocated to the Sunshine Coast to be closer to the ocean and nature. Ami as a surf lifesaver and Sian as a surfer, we have a deep love for the planet and are driven to do everything we can to protect it. We’re design-led individuals who believe that the way to make a lasting change is with strong ethics, powerful branding, and well-designed products.

 

Gone are the days of hiding ugly, plastic, and toxic cleaning products under your sink. Our focus on aesthetics, premium effective ingredients, and bringing joy to cleaning means we are more than a cleaning brand. We are becoming a self-care brand that’s leading the way in the just-add-water space. 

 

So what are you waiting for? Make the switch to our revolutionary products today and help us make waves, not ripples when it comes to social and environmental impacts.
