The Birth of the Magnetic Soap Holder
The journey of moss & pear began with a personal frustration — soggy soap that never seemed to dry out on the soap dish. Determined to find a sustainable and stylish solution, we embarked on a quest for the perfect soap holder. After years of contemplation and exploration, we decided to design one ourselves.
Inspired by childhood memories of magnetic soap holders, we sought to create a modern and eco-friendly version. Our Timber Magnetic Soap Holder is meticulously crafted in small batches, ensuring each piece meets our high standards. While they may take some time to make, the result is a beautifully designed product that effectively dries out your soap between uses.
In our first year, moss & pear was honoured to receive two prestigious awards. At the Australian Non-Toxic Awards 2020, we received the Silver and Editor's Choice awards in the Zero Waste - Home category. This acknowledgement affirmed our commitment to providing sustainable alternatives. In 2021, we were thrilled to be named a finalist in the Clean + Conscious Awards for Zero Waste - Home.
Supporting Sustainable Causes
We plant trees monthly with ReForest Now.
The decision to plant trees comes from an understanding of the interdependence of ecosystems and the need to correct some of the damage us humans have caused to the planet. The most effective tool we currently know of is trees.
Trees remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and the more CO2 that can be removed from the atmosphere, the lower the levels will be.
Trees helps prevent land soil erosion by holding the soil in place.
Trees clean the air by capturing harmful pollutants in their leaves and bark.
Trees absorb carbon dioxide when they take in water and nutrients from the soil and break down carbon compounds in leaves to release oxygen for us to breathe.
And trees are beautiful!
