a year of MMT
TO OUR AMAZING CUSTOMERS,
We hope this New Year finds you well and happy! 2013 was an amazing year for Meow Meow Tweet, and we thank you for contributing to that. 2014 brings some exciting new things that will be unveiled in the coming months, stay tuned or join or mailing list for more on that!
In the interest of transparency, we’d like to share the following.
In 2013 our ingredients costs and overhead went up significantly as a result of our growth and changes in the raw material marketplace. As a result, we must raise our prices to accurately reflect the cost of our production. As you know, we are committed to crafting each of our products by hand in Brooklyn (our home), sourcing as many US materials as possible, and using 100% natural, primarily certified organic ingredients. For these reasons, our price points are higher than brands (large and small) that make compromises, but you’ll see that our prices still remain competitive with those who are producing and setting a new standard for quality and ethical products.
The most noticeable change in pricing is with our bar soap. Each bar is now $10. We still offer a discount if you buy three bars AND we are now offering free domestic shipping on orders of $25 or more.
We can’t say enough thank you’s for your continued support! We seriously have the best customers ever!
Happy New Year!
-Jeff & Tara
To be honest, everyone is going to have a slightly different idea of what ethically sourced means, which is why it's difficult to define. But most people understand ethical sourcing as sourcing ingredients and materials in a responsible and sustainable manner that considers the people and environment throughout the process.
Exfoliation is pretty simple, it's removing dead cells from the surface of your skin. It can be a confusing topic because of conflicting information on what products to use, how often to use them and why you use them.
We're always learning more about how our waste impacts our planet. Waste contributes to the pollution of our oceans and lakes, and it increases the greenhouse gas effect that causes global warming. The three R's aren't cutting it, so now we have the five R's; Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Rot. Let's break them down.
