Who We Are

We are EQUO. We are on a mission to rid the world of damaging and wasteful single-use plastic, by providing SMALL SOLUTIONS that have a BIG IMPACT.

Why the Name?

EQUO / Iː.ˈkwō / – Ee-Kwo

Derived from the words ECO, meaning not harmful to the environment and STATUS QUO, meaning an existing state or condition, EQUO stands for the ideal of creating products with minimal impact to the environment.

Our Mission

EQUO products are designed by harnessing the raw power of mother nature to replace single-use plastics. We are uncompromising in our mission - to provide a variety of truly eco-friendly solutions for everyday items. All of our products are 100% plastic-free, biodegradable, and compostable. Simply - we're here to rid the world of single-use plastic.

Inspired By Nature






Our values

Community Support

Our materials are sourced from regions that support local farming initiatives and communities.

Minimal Impact

Truly eco-friendly solutions that leave the earth as naturally as they came in, impacting the earth as little as possible.

To Have Fun!

Saving the environment is serious business, but we try not to take ourselves too seriously. Sustainability CAN be fun!

Small Actions

Every action, no matter how small, is a step towards helping preserve the earth. You don't have to be perfectly sustainable to make a difference.

By the year 2050, the weight of plastic in the ocean will outweigh the weight of fish.
