‘Olava’ aims to reduce the environmental impact of body wash, by removing the water content, which makes up 90% of standard body wash. Removing this excess weight drastically reduces carbon emissions throughout production and distribution. The product retains the quality and experience of liquid body wash, appealing to a broader audience beyond eco-conscious consumers.
Olava’s carbon footprint is 99% lower than using single-use body wash bottles
The ceramic main body ensures a timeless design that will last users a lifetime. The pump and base make use of the abundance of existing waste as they are made of recycled single-use body wash bottles, symbolising the transition from single-use to refillable.
Users refill their body wash concentrates in-store and store them in the portable base container. This removes the need for secondary packaging. One concentrate lasts an average user one month and refills are needed only twice a year. Simply place the concentrate in the dispenser, fill with water and shake to mix.
The pump facilitates optimal product consumption as it effectively controls the amount of product dispensed at one time. As there are no metal components the pump (and base) can be easily recycled at the end of the product’s life.

Moss in urban areas provides several advantages: it cools the surroundings through evapotranspiration, increases biodiversity, reduces noise pollution, graffiti resistant, and requires minimal maintenance.
Internal components are housed in a dry box, ensuring they are protected and allowing easy maintenance. Bolts are hidden under a locked hatched to prevent tampering.
