Julian says. “But it was very exciting.”The following season, the two attended Natural Products Expo West, a big trade show in Anaheim, Calif., where they met buyers from Whole Foods and other eco-conscious retailers. With purchase orders in hand, they decided to change their business model, primarily selling wholesale rather than directly to consumers (although their retail site still contributes 10 percent of sales). They began adding more products, including divided food containers, insulated coffee cups and ice packs. About 5 years ago, they changed the company’s name to U Konserve, to reflect consumer interest from teenagers and adults. U Konserve products are now sold in 1,000 stores, and internationally in Europe and Australia. (They declined to disclose annual revenue.)Environmental ImpactToday, Julian and Claxton are proud of the impact that their small, 6-employee company has had on the environment. For instance, for the past 4 years, they’ve been selling stainless steel straws. Julian estimates that their product has kept 74 million plastic straws out of the waste stream. In 2015, U Konserve became a B Corporation, a designation that means the company meets rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency. (Etsy, Patagonia and Warby Parker are examples of well-known B Corps.) Next up for U Konserve: Expansion. “We are in the process of seeking either funding from an institution or an angel investor or a strategic partner,” Julian says. “We have the opportunity to grow to another level, which simply cannot be done with limited resources.”Julian says she’s personally happy that she and Claxton have been able to achieve their goal of building a successful eco-friendly company while raising kids. The two worked from their homes for 5 years — Julian in Scottsdale and Claxton in Sausalito, Calif. — until the company (and the kids) grew enough that outside offices made sense. “Both of us had a strong passion for creating a business that has a positive effect on the environment, and [we] wanted to make the Earth better for our kids,” she says. It’s “quite fulfilling.”/... (The Story Exchange)
