This is Change to Green

Posted by Claudia Schwaiger at

This is Change to Green. What is Change to Green? It’s a brand. Created by people for people. Who are we? A lot! Let me introduce Change to Green: Ralph, my beloved husband.

Education

Posted by Claudia Schwaiger at

A very important topic. Change to Green offers organic cotton products, right? Organic cotton tampons, organic cotton bags and book bags. With the book bags, we thought education was very important, because they are for kids. That’s how we came up with the idea of the “Story of the Happy Book Bag”.  https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0580/4789/files/Happy_Book_Bag.pdf?13974749640967776193 What about the women using our tampons?

This is to our wonderful customers. Every now and again I manage to fit an order in one envelope or a smaller box than expected. That means we can save shipment costs. What I usually do is adding a few more tampons in return, making sure our customers are getting the value they have actually paid for. It is always gratefully received and I get kind replies from our customers. Today, a customer wrote: Actually, if you haven’t packaged the order yet please give the extra ones to Hygiene for Homeless. I wanted to share this with you, because I...

Work for a cause

Posted by Claudia Schwaiger at

A couple of months ago, we had an email in our inbox: “ … We are sixteen year old students. We are contacting you to inquire about the production process involved in manufacturing your sanitary products, as well as to see if we would be able to visit or meet with you to learn more about your business and products. Thank you for your help.” We replied, I met the two 16 year old girls and understood what they are after: First of all they want to understand our business and if it presents itself the way we communicate it: honest,...
