Treestar

SUSTAINABLY CLEAN FOR THE HOLIDAYS.

This holiday season, we’re partnering with local artisanal soap company, Treestar, to make our holiday gifts. Why a soap company? “This year needs meaning,” says Versatile’s Mike Dos Santos. “So our holiday gift has to mean more than the standard holiday swag, which is often far from sustainable. With Treestar, we’re giving back with a company that gives back to the environment in many ways.”

THE TREESTAR STORY. MEET JOSÉ ALVAREZ.

Before making soap, founder José Alvarez worked in corporate law. “I’ve always had sensitive skin and a passion for creating something good for the world. So I quit law.” Now, his New York City-based company prioritizes sustainability all the way from their organic, fair trade- sourced ingredients to their plastic-free packaging.

OUR MISSION IS TO SPREAD LOVE, NOT GERMS.

Treestar was founded on the idea that bath and shower time should be fun, nourishing, sensational experiences you look forward to. They use premium plant oils in all of their products. “Soap-making is a magical process, and cleaning up should be, too. We want people to feel good because when they feel good, they do good things.”

ONE FOR YOUR BODY, ONE FOR THE ENVIRONMENT.

Treestar not only uses organic, food-grade ingredients to handcraft their soaps. They partner with OneTreePlanted.org to plant a tree for every dollar their customers spend. So every time they sell soap, the atmosphere gets cleaner, too.

COLLABORATIVE VALUES ALL YEAR LONG.

At Versatile, we collaborate with communities, artists, and eco advocacy groups who love to give back and live by the same values we do: People, Purpose, Planet. That’s why we’re showcasing Treestar this holiday season.
