how it all began 💁‍♀️

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

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

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.
