Hello investors and followers!
Time flies, and now this campaign is about to end - we regret not having posted any updates here for a while. In the last few months we have come a long way as a company, building on the momentum we had in 2020. Here are some highlights:
We have been growing fast (double digit % month over month), and continuing to accelerate further. We believe environmental consciousness in the mainstream is finally moving from denial (“What, really?”), to awareness (“I’m worried about this”), to taking action (“I’m ready to change my lifestyle to be more environmentally responsible”). And Trashless is perfectly poised to not only bring access to a zero-waste lifestyle, but also making it more modern, convenient, healthier, local, and affordable as well.
The ‘Milkman for Everything’ now finally delivers milk! Our partnership with Volleman’s Dairy - producers of arguably the best dairy milk at least in Texas - has been growing amazingly well. We are already their largest retailer, eclipsing all the retail stores in Austin combined!
Exciting Product Pipeline
A whole bunch of new items are rolling onto the launch pad, including: A complete range of dairy products, fresh new selection of nut milks, amazing specialty granolas, incredible vegan cheeses, CBD products, fresh pet food, chicken feed, a line of name brand candy items . . . and Meal in a Jar is coming back - better than ever before with a new name too. All 100% trashless!
We moved into a new facility recently - a significant improvement on our operational template that is more efficient, while delivering zero-waste products faster, better and cheaper. We expect that this, of course with further tweaks, will be the heart of our operational blueprint as we look to expand beyond Austin after achieving profitability over the next few quarters.
Chief Sustainability Officer
Earlier this year we welcomed John Gorman to the Trashless team as its Chief Sustainability Officer (more on him in the team section on this page). He has been tirelessly working to bring a slew of new products, partnerships, team members and prominent new investors to the company. We are adding more seasoned executives to the management team soon.
New content publishing system, new CRM, operations management systems, zero-waste container tracking SaaS platform, redesigned mobile apps, a consumer carbon footprint tracking system - these are some of the new developments our software engineering team has been working on - all rolling out through the rest of the year.
All of the above is helping us make steady progress towards achieving profitability - an important step for us before we truly step on the gas, raising significantly higher amounts of capital for wider roll outs.
We are not extending this campaign at this time. We will continue to raise capital privately at a higher valuation, and may also do another equity crowdfunding campaign sometime in the future.
So, for now, this is the last chance for a while and at this valuation for you to invest in a life without plastic packaging waste, and a world with a lot less trash. And if all goes well, just like we intend for it to, get a great return on your investment too!
Thank you for all your support, the comments, the sharing and investing in us!
