About me

.
Welcome to The Sustainable Change, a California based online zero waste store owned and run by myself, Amber Kang. My mission is to help you accomplish a Zero Waste lifestyle. I believe in providing you with an accessible and affordable way to achieve a more sustainable way of living.

The inspiration behind starting this small business began with a casual conversation with my sisters. I wanted to start an eco business simply because of my sheer respect for the environment. Combining my drive to start a small business and my concern for the planet The Sustainable Change was born!

The main focus of my store are my Ayurvedic soaps. These soaps are handmade in the Himalayas by a small religious site called 'Sundaram.' Living in India for 10+ years, I grew up using these soaps.I strongly believe in giving back as much as I can to the community. And it was not till recently that I realized that the best way I could give back to this site of religious heritage is to share their soaps with the rest of the world! So after a lot of planning, I was able to organize a way that I could ethically transfer the soaps from the Himalayas to your doorstep. And I assure you that all individuals involved in this process are treated with love and respect. My family and I have formed a very deep trust with the members of the religious heritage site over the years. As a result, I am proud to say that through the this store we all can help support a site of religious heritage.

The natural loofahs are made from dried up loofah gourd plant and are sourced from California, which is where I am now based. You can read more about the loofahs on the home page.  Lastly, the cork yoga mats are supplied to me through a partner in NYC. All the yoga mats are made from stripped cork as a result, no trees are harmed in the process of production. I have a blog post that goes more in depth about this if you would like to learn more.

.For your benefit, I like to maintain full transparency and honesty and wish to keep all my customers satisfied with my service. I am currently a one woman business therefore, I do handle 100% of the work.  So if you have any questions or doubts about the ethics behind the products or the process please do not hesitate to reach out to me on shop.sustainablechange@gmail.com. I use all the products myself, so rest be assured that they are genuinely amazing.
