Featured Producer: Tangie Natural Products
I base my life on one simple concept. “Do More With Less”. I was taught this concept from a very early age and my dad was my greatest example to do something because “It’s the right thing to do”. My company name, TANGIE was inspired by my dad, Terry. He believed in recycling and repurposing whenever possible and spent his entire working career doing just that while encouraging me to do the same. That’s why my company slogan is “Do more with less, because it’s the right thing to do”.
Growing up I was taught reuse it or get it recycled. My husband and I repurpose what we can, use travel mugs, cook in the Sun Oven, grow what we can, use a worm composter for kitchen scraps, make all the household cleaners we need. I worked my entire young adult life in law and finance and often found they did not mesh with my core beliefs. The corporate giant is not very good at reusing or recycling anything, especially paper!
I have been making my cleaning formulations for years with great success. Then in 2008 I was given the opportunity to develop my hobby into a real business. It was time to share what I knew about doing more with less!
Knowing the world is filled with harmful petroleum based cleaners, I decided to make a leap of faith and Tangie LLC, was born. Everything I formulate is free of petroleum, phosphates, harsh chemicals and animal testing or animal by products.
I’ve never looked back and continue to expand the line of products and the reach while always staying close to the lessons I learned growing up and being sure I always “Do more with less, because it’s the right thing to do”.
Most of you already know that recycling is not good enough. But do you know what to do about it? We have the answer….the “WASTE NOT” dispensing system. Delivery of bulk dispensing containers and refilling of bottles over and over again; saves you both money and time - not to mention the resources saved!
Let’s make it easier “do more with less, because it’s the right thing to do”.
We realize for some THIS IS ALL NEW….but so was taking our own shopping bags to the store a just a few short years ago and now plastic bags are banned in several major cities! Progress, one change at a time.
