OUR STORY

LEARN MORE ABOUT US

OUR MISSION

OKO was created to bring eco-friendly alternatives to the everyday bathroom and personal care item. We have so much plastic waste in our bathrooms; shampoo bottles, conditioner bottles, soap bottles, deodorant, creams, make up wipes and so many more items.

Our mission is to eliminate all that plastic and bring you some awesome alternatives.

We are bringing you a place where you can shop beautiful products from various brands that are in line with our mission and values.

We want to bring you items that just happen to be eco-friendly so you don’t have to compromise.

A PLASTIC FREE PASSION 

OKO was founded by passionate eco-friendly advocate Beth Williams in 2018. 

Whilst travelling around South East Asia, Beth was astonished by the amount of rubbish in these beautiful countries, both in landfill and in the ocean. It was clear to see that OUR single use plastics were ending up in THEIR oceans.

“When I arrived on the beautiful island of Koh Rong, Cambodia I was speechless. Looking down at the sea all I could see was plastic, rubbish. It is safe to say I didn’t shut up about it for the duration of our trip. I could not believe that we could possibly be destroying this beautiful world with our waste. I was determined to find a solution to this horrific reality”.
