PLASTIC FREE MERAKI

$200 of $500 goal

Raised by 6 people in 18 months
Hello and thank you for your interest in my fundraising campaign to go plastic free with my organic plant self care products!

At Meraki Farmacy  I organically grow herbs and flowers and sustainably harvest wild plants that are then infused into oils and/or water, used as the main ingredients in affordable, safe, healing, non-toxic self care products. I offer a variety of soaps, Boo-boo balm healing salve, Teeth Paste and the Pit Stick deodorant.  Please visit  http://www.merakifarmacy.com to learn more about what I do and why! 

The Pit Stick has been offered in plastic containers since opening in October 2016. I set the goal that once I had used all the plastic up I would make the switch to a much more responsible container. 

I am raising funds to obtain biodegradable containers made from recycled paper because as a 1 woman operation with no investments or borrowed funds I need some help! My goal is to always keep my products accessible to all folks, because no one should have to make a choice on non-toxic products. Health is a human right! 

I am raising funds to go no plastic because it is my honor as a business ownher to take responsiblity, to help change how we consume, make, market and exchange. 

I am asking for your help to make our world a bit healthier, a bit safer, with more leadership and stewardsip. 

Any amount of assistance is so very much appreciated and I thank you in advance for your generosity, for spreading the word, for joing me and the plants in doing our small part in creating change in this wild world!

Hello Radishes!

Happy to report I am back to VT and Meraki Headquarters after a thrilling and life changing adventure on the road with my dog Kinga.

I road tested the new container for the Pit Sticks and it was amazing! It survived the desert, high altitudes, being thrown around in camp gear, all sorts of temperatures and attitudes . . . It is amazing! You are going to LOVE it !

Please support this effort!

It occurred to me you probably would like to know more about what you are supporting when donating towards Meraki Farmacy Goes No Plastic.
You are specifically supporting The Pit Stick deodorant, a paraben and aluminum free, all natural deodorant that works!
It is so loved already, with folks recommending it to friends, buying several at a time for family, and coming back again and again, which is such an honor.
Here is what folks are saying and why this is a noble endeavor that deserves your attention and support:

From Sarah:
"A friend posted a link to Meraki Farmacy last winter when I was in the midst of a natural deodorant spree (I was determined to make the switch and was buying many different kinds to find what worked for me). The Pit Stick was not the first one I bought, but it is the first one that I ran out of and I was sad when I did! Of all the natural deodorants I've tried, this is the most soothing to put on and makes me feel like my armpits are the most pampered part of my skin. It's got a permanent place on my toiletry shelf."

From Amanda:

"Most of the natural,chemical-free deodorants I've tried in the past either reacted poorly with my sensitive skin or when applied, felt wet and never dry. I've been using the lavender pit stick for the past few months and it's amazing! I just ordered two more so I'll never go without! I highly recommend it."

From Jan:

"Pit Stick is amazing, it comes in a variety of scents, and I only have to apply it once a day--that's difficult to find in all-natural deodorant! "

From Jess:

"Meraki Farmacy has changed my life!!! I worked for a pretty well known grocer for a while and tried every single natural deodorant they had. Nothing works as well as Meraki's. The soaps and the salve is lovely as well. My very sensitive eczema skin doesn't disagree. Thanks to this lovely lady for making these much needed natural products. Finding ones that are this high quality and work well is not easy. Hip Hip Hooray!!! "

You can read more about why using the Pit Stick is a simple way to increase health and remove toxins from your life at http://www.merakifarmacy.com/ingredients-and-process.html .
Thank you for supporting a great cause for a powerful self care essential that is worth getting out into the world, particularly for women!

Thank you!
