Kempii is an online eco shop created for people who want to reduce their waste, but aren’t sure where to start. Our mission is to inspire as many people as possible to reduce their waste, by showing them how easy it is!
Kempii was named after Kemp's Ridley Sea Turtle (Lepidochelys Kempii), the smallest and rarest species of Atlantic sea turtle and one of thousands of ocean species threatened by plastic waste. By 2050, it is estimated that the ocean will contain more plastic than fish by weight. We hope Kempii will inspire people to create a better future for Lepidochelys Kempii and other endangered wildlife.
Working in busy careers in London, we had always lived the convenient disposable lifestyle, leaving behind a trail of waste - from coffee cups to takeaway containers.
After waking up to the global waste issue, we decided to make a change. We thought reducing waste would mean committing to huge lifestyle changes, but once we started out, we discovered it actually didn’t. Guided by the 5 Rs, we were able to drastically reduce our waste just by picking up some new habits and switching to reusable eco-friendly products.
We realised that more and more people were waking up to waste. So we created Kempii eco shop in 2018 to demystify the idea that reducing waste demands effort.
