Our Story

Our Beginning | 

We were traveling in Asia and we came across these biodegradable dry-to-wet wipes in a plastic bag.  Yep, we said it - PLASTIC!  We loved using these wipes but it bothered us that they came in a plastic bag.  I mean - why have a biodegradable product in a plastic bag?  Right?  So, we partnered with a manufacturer to transform the packaging from a plastic bag to a biodegradable, cardboard tube. And this is how Sage & Alms was born.

 

First, we set out to make a company, then we considered the brands.

 

Our Brands | 

Today, we have Kanda Chocolates and DewBurst under our company.  Two brands that are align with our mission. 

DewBurst is a biodegradable, compressed dry-to-wet cloth that comes in a biodegradable tube! When wet, it expands to full size (9" x 12").  The sale of DewBurst aids in our commitment to bringing forth products that minimize waste in our environment.

 

Kanda Chocolates are bean to bar chocolates from Ghana.  The sales of these chocolates aid or commitment to a creating positive and measurable on the social wellbeing of others.
