Our impact and sustainability

Tangie company offers zero waste alternatives to beauty, cleaning and pet care products. Sustainability is at the core of Tangie’s DNA. Let us share with you how sustainability shows up tangibly in our business everyday.

Our fight against plastic

At Tangie we believe small changes in our daily lives can collectively create a substantial positive impact for our bodily health and the health of our beautiful planet Earth.

For years, the beauty, personal care, and household cleaning products industry have been a major contributor to single use plastic waste in the United States. Obviously, it’s happen all over the world, but as a United States based company, we focus on the reduction of waste in the areas as can have an impact.

Giving back

We are proud to say we give back in many ways but there are a few places we are most proud of. The following places are amazing and we support them by providing them cleaning products without charge when they need it.


Ruth House is a transitional shelter for women in crisis who possess a strong desire to overcome their life wounds, addictions, and/or addictive behaviors. This is accomplished through a research-based, systematic program that includes Bible study, group and individual counseling, and connections with the community.We teach women how to live a healthy lifestyle under the Lordship of Christ.We help women set goals, find employment and establish a permanent residence.Ruth House was founded in March of 2006 due to the high number of women with children who struggle with various issues of addiction and are in need of guidance and help in reconstructing their lives and the lives of their families.

Street Team Movement’s laundry program is called (Re): New

The goal of (Re): New is to provide a safe place for our clients to wash their clothes. Street Team Movement provides the location and any resources needed to perform laundry duties; our clients are required to make and keep their own appointments. Most homeless individuals either contend with dirty clothes or seek out new clothing as opposed to simply washing the clothes that they already have. In partnership with Thornton Park Coin Laundry, we are able to renew not only our client’s clothes but their hope and outlook on themselves. A fresh change of newly washed clothes should not be taken for granted.

Twice a week, an average of 212 people laundry. Which is about 424 loads of laundry. An average of $8 per person, so an average monthly total of $1,696. We have been proving laundry services since April of 2014. Year to date we have done 22,048 loads of laundry for 11,024 people. We have used an average of $20,352 in quarters to do laundry (Which comes to 1,017 pounds of quarters).

Forward paths

For those aging out of the foster care system. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to live up to their full potential. Our focus is on our community’s homeless youths and those who are aging out of foster care.

We believe together we can create a path that leads to independence. Our vision is a supportive community that aids in acquiring housing, transportation, job skills, and other needed services that will direct them on a forward path to success. With the support of our community, these vulnerable youth will flourish, uniting voices of change around the world.


Please, everyone bring all your newspapers, magazines, and other papers to the shelter and help us fill it to the top! The proceeds from this will benefit our shelter tremendously!
