We are grateful for your support and can't wait to hit the finish line on this Kickstarter campaign. We are excited to move into the next phase of our products and get these out to people so that we can continue to support schools in need.
What have we accomplished?
-We are in the process of moving our site to a new hosting service which will greatly enhance our abilities to sell online.
-We just finalized new packaging. Our new packaging is going into production and will be more professional while holding to our mission of being environmentally conscience as it has no plastic and will be fully recyclable.
-We found two new suppliers who are FSC certified and bring our costs down. Huge + for us.
-We have been able to speak to a few movers and shakers who are interested in what we do and we may have some future opportunities to partner.
-We are now Utah's 5th Certified B Corporation which is huge for us. This means that we have been certified by an independent body who took 3 months to make sure that we do what we say we do. Now customers can be assured that their money is going to help the community, environment and schools across the US.
In the end this company was not started to make millions of dollars, but to make people aware that teachers are having to support their students, our next generation, with their own money. While pencils are just one of the many things teachers need in the classroom we hope that we can help as many as we can across the US. While we may be a mouse we have the heart of a lion.
Thanks for being part of our journey so far and we can't wait to see what comes next.
