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.

Ami and I are beyond grateful for the year we've had, and the support people like you have given to our fight against single-use plastic and toxic cleaning chemicals in your homes.
In March 2020 Pleasant State was just an idea, but in that time we've managed to build an incredible community of over 10,000 amazing people and smashed our crowdfunding campaign out of the park with over $80,000 raised from over 1,300 beautiful customers. Now it's all becoming very real as we prepare to pack orders and send out our game-changing products right to your front door. It's happening people!
2021 is going to be even bigger, as we work together to prevent 100,000 plastic cleaning products from going to landfill, and build a business that will take us from a crowdfunding success story, to an iconic brand you see in all forward-thinking Australian homes. Just imagine!
With all this going on, Ami and I are committed to building an ethical brand that balances people, planet and profits. We promise to always listen, always remain transparent, and always strive to be the best. Because you and our planet deserve it.
An advocate for adventure, conscious living and creative endeavours, Sian left her marketing job, packed up her life in Melbourne and moved to Noosa in 2019. The go to dreamer of the group, Sian has years of experience in Creative Digital Marketing, Social Media Management &; Public Relations. You’ll find Sian in front of the camera spreading the Pleasant State mission far and wide, but if by chance she’s not there, she’s probably snuck out of the office to go for a surf while she thought nobody was looking. Most importantly, Sian believes that we exist in a pivotal time in which it’s our responsibility to protect and change the way we interact with the planet.
Ami loves solving problems that no-one else is willing (or silly enough) to take on - be it in the corporate, start-up or not-for-profit landscapes. She’s never accepted the status quo and always fights against injustice. Ami looks after all the business side of things and ensures our team is moving together in the right direction. She holds an MBA and has a long history in big business and knows there’s a better way of doing things. She is compelled to prove that ethical decision-making is good for business, people and planet. Ami lives on the Sunshine Coast with her partner. You’ll often find her on the weekend patrolling the beach in her reds and yellows.

Wayne is a strange mix of chemist and ‘greenie’ – and we mean that in the nicest possible way! This unusual mix might also explain why he was appointed as a director of a chemical company at age 22, but now lives on 44 acres of rainforest on the Mooloolah River in a solar-powered off-grid home with its own tank water and oversized septic system. Wayne highly values his independence, which is why he became a freelance chemist at age 31 and has been working with innovative companies ever since then. Along with his wife, he enjoys swimming laps and looking for rocks in obscure destinations.
Heather has a background in political behaviour. She loved reading through the telephone book as a child so it’s no surprise that she now enjoys researching new subjects and navigating through Government Regulations! Heather’s a happy nerd with plenty of Apple accessories and thinks that the 1970s was the best decade ever. She’s constantly brimming with new ideas and is looking forward to a world that has fewer and fewer single-use plastics in it – like she remembers from her childhood. In her spare time, you can find her crocheting –in 1970s style of course!
