Petal is a single-use plastic-free, zero-waste company specializing in hand soap, but it's really so much more. This is a startup tackling the bigger issue of plastic waste in our oceans. Did you know over 500 million plastic bottles go to landfills or become ocean waste each year? Yeah, it's sickening.
As you know, I'm not a stranger to mission-driven entrepreneurship. A couple of months ago I got connected with Jason Domangue, the founder of Petal, who opened my eyes to something I've become entirely obsessed with. Jason had been searching through his home for hand soap — long before COVID came into the U.S. — only to realize all the plastic bottles were empty. He didn't just open up his phone and rush some Dial via Amazon or get in his car to buy some soap from the grocery store. Instead, Jason got started on an idea that would become Petal, a single-use plastic-free, zero-waste hand soap.
