The evolution of our supply chain and responsible manufacturing
An insight into our supply chain journey
At Tirtyl, we've proudly been building an Australian-first supply chain since we started in 2020, and we're proud to be making waves in the local manufacturing economy.
When we started the business, making products of our nature was simply not achievable in Australia. The infrastructure didn't exist, and manufacturers were unwilling to work with us given we were a new business, with no track record, investors or any guarantee of high volumes.
Fast forward two years, we're now selling thousands of tablets a day, and launched two world-first of it's kind products both manufactured in Australia, our Foaming Body Wash and Universal Cleaner. Our 100% home compostable tablet wrapping is also made locally and is being exported around the world including the United States!
Here's a summary of our manufacturing location per product:
|Hand Soap Tablets||China|
|Body Wash Tablets||Australia|
|Univerasl Cleaner Tablets||Australia|
|100% Home Compostable Wrappers||Australia|
|Dispensers & Tins||China|
Where to next?
Our next major initiative is to also transition the manufacturing of our hand soap tablets to Australia, which is currently being made in China. This has been a challenging process with a heavy investment in R&D over the past 2 years.
For a tablet-based product, the infrastructure in Australia is extremely limited compared to China, and we are currently working with our supply-chain partners to create new capability in the country. For example, did you know that there is no such thing as a dishwasher tablet that is Made in Australia? There are no manufacturers that are able to do it commercially, and as such every dishwasher tablet here is imported - including ours! We source ours from an ethical manufacturer in France.
Despite these challenges, we're crossing our fingers for exciting announcements in Q1 2023, and customers will be the first to know once we've succesfully transitioned the manufacturing of our hand soap tablets in Australia.
After that, we'll be turning our attention to dispensers, packaging, laundry sheets and yes, our dish tabs too. With our traction to date and willingness to be leaders in the Australian manufacturing economy, we're confident we'll have more exciting news to announce in the near future.
Overall, when it comes to supply chain we're dedicated to leading by example and setting a new standard for small business in Australia - so watch this space!

The most effective concentrate
Our foaming hand soap contains many of the same ingredients as other effective and moisturizing soaps, less the nasties of course.
The biggest difference is we've packed ours into a powerful tablet, so you don't have to pay for water or plastic packaging!
The smarter way to
Save a trip to the supermarket where you'll pay more for less! Instead get refills economically shipped to your doorstep. It's simply the smarter choice.

Maybe a GIF - with plastic waste piling up, vs cutting wrapping into pieces and burying or putting in recycle bin.
No more single-use plastic
Only 9 percent of plastic is recycled in the USA. Instead, most plastic waste including soap and cleaning bottles ends in landfill, or worse our oceans.
In the near future, single-use plastic for most household consumables will be gone forever.
