Our story

In a nutshell

Pike's Pouches was launched in the spring of 2019 with the purpose of offering high quality natural products in a sustainable alternative to plastic bottles. 

Why go to war with plastic bottles?

  • 8 million tons of plastic enter the ocean every year. This is equivalent to dumping a garbage¬†truck full of plastic into the ocean every minute!
  • There is now more plastic than fish in the ocean by weight.
  • Plastic bottles make up the majority of ocean plastic pollution.
  • A plastic bottle can take up to 1,000 years to decompose. That means that plastic bottles used today can still be floating around by the year 3000.
  • Plastic pollution kills an estimated 1 million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals each year. Plastic bottles are a major culprit, as animals can mistake them for food or get entangled in them.
  • Only 9% of all plastic waste is recycled. The rest ends up in landfills, incinerators, or the environment.
  • Virtually no beauty/personal care bottles can be recycled. Sadly, due to residue virtually no¬†beuaty/personal care bottles can be recycled and instead they are down-cycled into something like a traffic cone or fleece.

Why our pouches kick their... behinds!

  • 80% less plastic than standard plastic bottles when compared on equal capacity.¬†
  • Up to 9 times less natural resources used in manufacturing and transportation meaning a substantially¬†lower carbon footprint.
  • Unlike plastic bottles,¬†our pouch comes with a BPA-free aluminium lining to¬†prevent plastic impurity contamination.
  • Due to their acute size and flexibility our pouches¬†save space on your shelves or in your cupboards.
  • We proudly offer a Zero waste programme whereby we ask customers to collect pouches to return to us to then be reused or forwarded to a specialist recycling facility. For more info please click here

What about the products inside of the pouch?

  • We offer premium quality products and we never compromise quality for cost or dilute products down with cheap ingredients as so many others do.
  • We are committed to offering products purely of natural origin. This means nothing artificial or GMO's will be found in any of our products.

We go that one step further

  • As a brand we are certified by cruelty free international¬†and the vegan society¬†meaning our products have undergone rigorous scrutiny to ensure¬†they have not been tested on animals or contain ingredients of animal original.
  • As proud members of 1% for the planet¬†we pledge to donate 1% of each sale to grassroots environmental groups making a difference in their local communities.¬†
