Meet the faces behind the brand
Katie Pearson, founder & Brittany Gandy, product development

Katie lives in Washington, D.C., where she work as a graphic designer for National Geographic. It is here where she learned all about the extent and damage done to our planet from plastic pollution. When Katie found out that 552 million shampoo bottles could end up in U.S. landfills this year alone, she decided to switch to shampoo bars. However, whenever she finally found a product she liked, it was shipped in plastic! So, she created Parrotfish.

Katie knew that she did not want just any "holier-than-thou," plastic-free company. Parrotfish
 ended up being the nexus of all that she 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 Katie's venture, her 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.
