how it all began ūüíĀ‚Äć‚ôÄÔłŹ

Katie Pearson Fucci, Founder & CEO
Brittany Gandy, Research & Product Development 

Hello, I'm Katie and I am the founder and CEO of Parrotfish and I am a graphic designer at National Geographic. I am originally from the Washington, D.C. metro area, but I currently live in New Bern, North Carolina, where my husband is a Harrier pilot for the Marines.

When I was started my plastic-free journey, I felt that all of the products were unexciting, and needed an instruction manual to figure out. As a response, I created Parrotfish ‚Äď making your sustainable swap one of beauty and ease with our refillable plastic free, palm-oil free, personal-care products.

I knew that I did not want just any "holier-than-thou," plastic-free company. Parrotfish ended up being the nexus of all that I love, which is art, the environment and having a positive impact to this world! It gives you the ability to ditch your branded plastic bottles and showcase a handmade bar that always strikes up a conversation! 

After learning of my venture, my sister-in-law, Brittany, was eager to join and quickly learned to make body bars, salt scrubs and much more. She is innovative and loves learning about the science behind the beauty. As a kick-ass mother of 2 boys, Brittany cares about the ingredients that go into the products she makes. You can rest assured that every product sold is both planet, and mother approved! 

Parrotfish creates their own products, as well as showcasing independent makers around the country. We want you to experience the beauty and joy our handmade, plastic-free products will bring to your personal-care routine, and join us in the movement that will change the world.
