For the start of the fresh year 2021, we decided to give you an update on what's been going on in Skosh lately. We do hope you enjoy reading team updates as much as we enjoy sharing them!
What a year 2020 has been! Wow, really WOW!
We're not gonna cite all the unfortunate things that happened last year, social media and news channels do it daily anyway. Take a deep breath, this is a negativity-free space. Bad things surely happened this year. But we spent more than usual time at home which gave us an opportunity to introspect and think about stuff that really matters. Not to mention it was also a decent time to free ourselves from worries that used to seem big or important but in reality, were not.
At Skosh, we also had lots of time to improve our product and reflect the values we express. After our testing phase in September, we gathered huge feedback from people who tried our product and were willing to share their views (huge thanks to all of you for this!). It was such a blessing to see that we actually managed to touch your lives and you were willing to include Skosh in your cleaning routine. After reading all answers one by one, analyzing and categorizing them, we discovered key points that should be improved. By staying loyal to our organic and eco-friendly formula, we talked to our manufacturers and made the changes you asked for.
Have you tried our tablets? Do you want to give us feedback? All comments are highly appreciated, send us your thoughts!
Another exciting news… oh wait ... Drum-roll, please?
We now have an online shop! We started selling all our tablets - multipurpose, glass & mirror, and bathroom - on the website. What's more convenient and exciting than ordering your eco-friendly, space-efficient cleaning tablets now and supporting a local startup? We prepare and send packages in our office with love and they come in a small, minimalistic, recyclable paper packaging as you see below. But most importantly, we finally received our sustainable and premium cleaning bottles !! They are now available in our online store as well and will be shipped to you within 1-3 business days after your order. Order your Skosh products now, they're one click away!
By offering small cleaning tablets we removed plastic waste partly from our everyday lives. Our first success was to reach the milestone of 1000 plastic bottles saved! In the long term, it means saying “goodbye” to plastic waste in the cleaning industry forever and changing deep-rooted believes that plastic is an irreplaceable and inseparable part of everyday life.
We also teamed up with the amazing Sveeka Postcards for Christmas Giveaway on our Instagram page. Sveeka Postcards produce sustainable postcards made of grass paper to spread joy and happiness through handwritten messages. The winner was announced in December and she got 3 Skosh bathroom cleaning tabs, 3 multi-purpose cleaning tabs, 3 glass & mirror cleaning tabs, and 6 Sveeka postcards. Congratulations again!
Missed our giveaway or did not win? No worries! We'll soon have one more giveaway! Follow our Instagram account to be updated.
Of course, it was not just rainbows and butterflies for Skosh. According to our calculations, we were supposed to receive and start selling Skosh bottles already before Christmas. Like our cleaning tablets, Skosh bottles are also designed with sustainability in mind. They are practical, minimalistic, and made of 100% recycled plastic. Unfortunately due to the pandemic and border restrictions, the transporation took a lot longer than anticipated.
All in all, we made it through and are now able to ship out all the pre-orders. And we appreciate every single one of you who supported us in this journey throughout the year. It was a hard year for most of us. We could not travel, we lost our jobs, we got more things to worry about. But on the positive side, we also slowed down, stopped planning everything, and trying to be perfect. We spent more time with our loved ones and we started thinking about what truly matters. If there's one lesson we learned from 2020, it's that if we slow down and spend more time thinking about what's important in life, we'll see most of our worries and concerns in life were superficial and not that scary.
Happy New Year to all of you!
