The 2016 Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro did more than award record-setting champions, it spurred the idea for a new way to clean. One of our founders, Rodrigo Tostes, was the Chief Operating Officer for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio. The Rio Olympic Village was the largest in Olympic history, but with size comes challenges. How do you clean such a large facility with quality and speed? Rodrigo turned to his lifelong friend and YVY Naturals co-founder Marcelo Ebert, who was the CEO of a cleaning company at the time. When Marcelo mentioned testing out a new solution that would be effective and at the same time 100% natural and create less waste, Rodrigo became immediately interested. Rodrigo saw this type of product as a game-changer. His teams could move faster to clean the thousands of rooms because the pods were much lighter than carrying around traditional cleaning supplies. Not only did they save time and money, they reduced plastic not needing to toss out single-use bottles when empty, and pods were much easier to store. It was a win-win-win, strong cleaning power without chemicals and less plastic to haul around meant quicker speeds and less impact on the environment. Thus, YVY Naturals was born.
We Live By Our Principles
YVY (ee-vve) was born in Brazil, a result of watching the deforestation of the Amazon Rain Forest and wanting to help. But our motivation goes farther than just helping Brazil. We see the waste and pollution in the entire cleaning industry and think we can do MUCH better. We want to change, for the better, how products are created, the ingredients they use, how they get to you and how they are used and reused. Brazil and the Amazon was our inspiration but the world is our goal - we know we can do better! Let's Clean for Good!
