The Kappi Principles
Reduce your waste
Make small changes that are sustainable for your lifestyle! We don’t believe in going from zero to hero over night but instead we encourage taking small steps often. There are many changes and swaps that you can make to reduce your impact on the planet - we’re here to help you get started!
Operate our business free from Plastic
We are a plastic free operation! We work closely with our manufacturers to ensure that no plastic packaging is used throughout our supply chain. Often this means paying a higher price to use options other than plastic.
Educate and Inspire
We aim to provide helpful education and inspiration via our blog and social media posts on how to reduce your impact on the planet. We also aim to inspire our community by sharing our lifestyle on our Instagram page and Facebook Community.
We donate 1% of all revenue to 1% for the Planet - an environmental non-profit creating change.
Hi, we’re Fred and Em, husband and wife, co-conspirators, partners in crime and founders of Kappi. We created Kappi to fill a need for beautifully-designed, incredibly functional and fairly-priced alternatives to single-use plastics.
It was early 2017 when our journey towards reducing our environmental footprint truly began. Prior to this, we thought we were doing our best. Sorting our recycling, replacing our incandescent lights with LEDs, taking public transport whenever possible - there were no shortage of mental high-fives we were giving ourselves over these little changes. And while these were great first steps, it wasn’t until the ABC’s War On Waste that we realised the true scale of Australia’s waste epidemic and the devastating effect our own mindless consumption of single-use plastics was having on our natural environment.
Almost overnight we became super aware of the excessive levels of waste we were generating every week and set out to find alternatives to some of the most common single-use plastic items. But it was hard. At the time, the majority of reusable alternatives were either a) pretty daggy; b) very expensive; or c) shock horror, packaged in plastic!
So you could say that Kappi was started to fill our own desire for affordable, gorgeous and functional alternatives. We wanted to create products that we would be proud to carry around with us everywhere. Products that were so effortless to use that they would become second nature. Products that were so well designed and so well built that they would last a decade or more. And, most importantly, products that at the end of their life cycle could be returned to the earth having had no negative effect to the overall health of this planet we call home.
Over the years, Kappi has evolved and so have we. What started out as a side-hustle has now grown into Em's full-time job. We have a wonderful team, and in July 2020 we welcomed our beautiful son Archie.
However, no matter where this journey takes us, we can promise you this. We are in this for the intent more than we are for the returns. Our products and the brands we represent will always adhere to our values. We will keep designing our own line of products and there will be no corners cut, no shortcuts taken. Only the most durable, best designed and fairest priced products on the market. That’s our commitment, both to you and to the earth.
