As Meow Meow Tweet sidles up to it’s third year, we have many exciting things afoot. Over time we have gotten a lot of similar questions about what we do and the things we make, and while we attempt to answer those questions to the fullest in person, we don’t always have the luxury of meeting you that way. So this is a way for us to do just that. We will showcase products (old and new) and our process, so that you can get the “behind-the-scenes” experience. Otherwise, it is a platform to share things that inspire our process and new collaborations that we have on the horizon.
As many of you know (or should know) we are a two-person operation. This means that everything with our name on it is conceived, formulated, designed, crafted and used by us. We founded Meow Meow Tweet out of a desire to participate in local commerce by sharing what we think is one of life’s simplest pleasures: soap. As purveyors, we hope to impact small changes in the lives of our customers through the physical, emotional and ecological healthfulness of completely natural and organic goods for your body. With MMT, we hope to make that experience accessible and our process transparent. We seek to inspire and be inspired with what we make, and when it happens share it with others. We hope that you’ll enjoy following along.
Disclaimer: We can’t make promises that we won’t post photos of our cats in the future- but in an attempt not to be too literal to our name, we will try to keep the cat-indulgance to a minimum. However, this is probably the place to introduce them, as they’ve inspired much of the look for our packaging. (photos graciously and beautifully taken by Doug Johnston)
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.
