Meow Meow Tweet

Made With Spirit

Who They Are

Like the name suggests, Meow Meow Tweet (MMT) is a quirky, unorthodox, small-batch skincare company that specializes in environmental awareness and sustainability. Founded in 2009 by musicians Jeff Kurosaki and their partner Tara Pelletier, the two were looking for ways to fund their artistic endeavors. They started creating soaps and deodorants as a side project, hoping to bring whimsy and fun into the organic skincare world. They started this off with a name as creative as their concepts–Meow Meow Tweet is named after their two cats and a pet bird.

Meow Meow Tweet has its headquarters in upstate New York, and goes out of their way to ensure their ingredients and production live up to their values. Each product is carefully crafted in the US, meaning they have full oversight over the formulation of each and every product. Along with creating vegan, non-toxic, plastic free products, MMT works charitable giving into their monthly routine. MMT is a young, humble company that understands the struggles they’ll face in the competitive world of skincare products–but they’re also passionate about their products and believe that their sustainable alternatives are worth some extra elbow grease

Why We Like Them

Before Meow Meow Tweet begins production of any of their skin care products, they know that they first must begin with sourcing high quality, sustainably produced ingredients. As they like to say, all of their goods are treated like modern culinary dishes. The ingredients that comprise their formulas are all made using organic, vegan, unrefined plant oils and butters, steam-distilled and cold-pressed essential oils, and organic and wild-crafted botanicals, nothing more. MMT is also proud to be a Leaping Bunny Cruelty Free certified company, meaning that neither themselves, nor any of their suppliers, test any products or ingredients on animals.

MMT also prides themselves on going above and beyond when it comes to their packaging. In attempts to be sustainable, and to keep business within the US, MMT has partnered with the Chicago Paper Tube Company to make their deodorant tubes. This company uses at least 80% post-consumer waste paper with no plastic or metal liners to create push tubes for MMT’s deodorant products. The packaging is printed using non-toxic soy and vegetable-based ink, and the paper and glues are all FDA compliant with no harmful solvents or chemicals. All of this outstanding work means that the packaging is compostable, and if you were so inclined to bury it in your backyard, it would biodegrade in just a year! 

Burying things in your backyard might be fun, but Meow Meow Tweet provides another great alternative to the products’ end of life with their bulk refill program. MMT works with their suppliers to create a bulk version of their products, meaning less waste and less items that need to be shipped! Plus, MMT also works with rePurpose Global to ensure their products and packaging are plastic-negative; meaning for every ounce of plastic they use, they work with rePurpose Global to remove more than that amount from our oceans and waterways. They’re also Climate Neutral Certified, meaning they’ve undergone an extensive process of measuring and offsetting their overall footprint to achieve net-zero (or better) carbon emissions!

A company that values sustainability is always great, but one that also shares the love makes us love them even more! Meow Meow Tweet does just that. Each month, MMT finds a charitable organization that aligns with their goals and values to donate to. Some of these organizations include the Sierra Club, Amazon Watch, Earthjustice, and many many more.

This means that in addition to helping clean up our oceans, they’re also investing in recycling infrastructure in developing nations. A brand’s partnership with rePurpose Global involves offsetting various amounts of their plastic usage, from partial, to full (plastic neutral) or even offsetting more plastic than they produce (plastic negative).

Parabens are synthetic chemical preservatives, commonly used in beauty products like shampoo, lotion, and deodorants. Parabens can accumulate in your body, and have been linked to hormonal disruption and reproductive problems. In studies of breast cancer patients, parabens have been found in the tissue of cancerous tumors–yikes! If you want to avoid Parabens in your beauty products, keep an eye out for methylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, and ethylparaben in the ingredients list.

Phthalates are found in toys, electronics, personal care products, plastic wraps, containers, and more. These petroleum based chemicals help soften plastics, and bind fragrances to perfumes, deodorants, creams, and other personal care products. Phthalates are are not chemically bound, meaning they can easily get released into the air, water, or your body, just by using the products as intended. Phthalates have been found to disrupt the endocrine system, which can cause reproductive damage, hormonal imbalances, infertility, mood changes, metabolism changes, and more.
