Cutting Down on Plastics?
LIKE US, ARE YOU...
Tired of "recycling" your empty cleaner bottles — knowing 91% of them end up in landfill anyway? 😱
Excited to support our Canadian student-led small business (just us 5 Hopes)? 🇨🇦
Frustrated with paying too much in US$ for your eco-friendly products? 😕
Worried about greenwashing & tablet refills that don't have what it takes to clean the tough jobs? 🙄
Taking on the Big Brands
No Dragon's Den required 😈
I'm Matthew Hope
OUR HOPE STORY 💚
Over 2.5 BILLION plastic cleaner bottles are diverted to landfill EVERY YEAR.
That's why William, Lauren & I (with a "little" help from friends & parents) launched HopePodz.
HopePodz is the only Green Seal Certified liquid pod that doesn't come in (or with) a plastic bottle, bag or wrapper — cleans great — and doesn't break the bank.
How about packaging?
Every day, we head into our parents’ basement here in Ontario to hand-pack your Podz into tiny, recyclable pizza boxes. NEVER plastic bags!
Why? 91% of Big Brand's factory-packed pouches & wrappers — even "Recyclable" & "Compostable" ones — cannot be easily recycled by Canadian facilities.
So, despite all our best intentions — Big Brand packaging almost always ends up joining their plastic bottle cousins in landfill 🙅
I love mine!

If you’re on the fence, I urge you to give them a try. I have issues with liquid hand soaps really drying my hands out - but have been using the hand wash podz for awhile now and they really are fantastic. No dry hands and they clean farm grit off my hands just as well as any other brand, plus it doesn’t burn cuts or blisters! So, I’m my opinion these podz are far better than any other soap! And no freaking plastic! ~ Holly L, Planet Hoper since 2021)
Makes so much sense

I have been a subscriber for almost a year. When I go into the store and see all those bottles that are 95% water I just can't believe people still buy these ~Karen P, Planet Hoper since 2022
Podz vs powdered tablet refills: What's the difference?
Podz liquid concentrates = more active ingredients so cleans better (vs powdered tabs)
We charge in CDN$ and ship by Canada Post (vs 🇺🇸)
Podz makes 400mL MORE cleaner (vs tabs)
Podz packaging = recyclable cardboard (vs foil-lined "compostable" wrappers diverted to our landfills)
We're a 🇨🇦 family-run company (just the 5 of us) operating out of our parents home here in Toronto (vs big US brand)
Check out this blog post: Podz vs Tablets: What cleans better?
What do the 3 HopePodz cleaners clean?
All HopePodz house-cleaners are Green Seal Certified to be AMAZING cleaners 😊In fact, they're used by professional cleaners to keep offices, malls, gyms & health facilities clean. We're first to offer them to the Canadian home market!
HopePodz Multi-Surface Cleaner (purple pod) is specially formulated to tackle dirt and grease on all NON-POROUS SURFACES, including: counters, sealed wood floors, laminate & sealed stone (marble, granite, quartz, travertine, terrazzo). Great for use in your kitchen, family room & in your Vileda floor spray mop.
HopePodz Bathroom Cleaner (green pod) is specially formulated to tackle soap scum, water stains, and messes you find around the toilet! Again, it's safe for use on NON-POROUS SURFACES, like your counters, sealed stone & shower surfaces, tubs & sealed tile
HopePodz Glass Cleaner (blue pod) is designed for use on glass, mirrors & windows. There's NO AMMONIA in it so to avoid streaking, we suggest you try our HopeTowelz Swedish sponge cloths (which really are a game changer).HopePodz
What are the ingredients? Are they safe?
HopePodz Cleaners: Our Green Seal Certified cleaning formulas are non-toxic & non-carcinogenic. They contain: Ethoxylated alcohols, C9-C11 blend, Hexylene glycol, Propylene glycol, Water, Synthetic fragrance (lavender), Dye
Foaming Hand Soap Podz are made without ammonia, chlorine bleach, parabens, phosphates, phthalates, VOCs — and are sourced from ingredients that are vegan, cruelty free & gluten-free. They contain: Triethanolamine Dodecylbenzenesulfonate, Hexylene Glycol, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate*, Aqua, Fragrance, No colour added
Safety: As with all cleaners, please keep your Podz out of reach of children.
The following safety information is for concentrated Podz only. Once diluted with water at home, these warnings no longer apply. Please refer to the dilution instructions included in your Pack... "KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. May irritate eyes and skin. Do not get in eyes or skin. Do not ingest. FIRST AID: Contains: Ethoxylated alcohols C9-C11 blend, Hexylene Glycol, Propylene Glycol. If contents come in to contact with skin rinse with water. If ingested, drink plenty of water and do not induce vomiting, consult a physician or poison control centre. In case of eye contact, flush with water for at least 15 minutes and seek medical attention"
What's the fragrance?
HopePodz Cleaners: Our manufacturer calls it lavender — but I really don't smell much of anything. In fact, many Planet Hopers tell me they add a few drops of their favourite essential oil to beef up the scent a bit.
Still, we caution you that HopePodz may not be suitable for individuals with scent sensitivities. If you find you cannot manage the fragrance, we have a 100% money back guarantee
Where are HopePodz manufactured?
🇨🇦 We're a student-led company (with a little help from our parents) that's based in Ontario.
We ship everything using Canada Post
We charge in CDN dollars
There are no duties or custom charges
Our manufacturing partner is also Canadian, with facilities in both Canada & the US
Is HopePodz packaging recyclable?
Yes! In our parents basement, we hand-pack your Podz into tiny, RECYCLABLE CARDBOARD boxes.
We avoid factory-packed, plastic "recyclable" pouches used by Big Brands — as well as "compostable" wrappers (often foil-lined) used by our American tablet friends.
Sadly, plastic pouches & compostable wrappers too often end up FOREVER in landfill. Few major Canadian Municipal Waste Centres have the facilities to compost/recycle these materials.
Do the Podz break down into micro-plastic?
Our Podz do NOT contribute to the Planet's micro-plastics issue. The Podz casing is made up of polyvinyl alcohol (PVA,PVOH). PVA is Green Seal Certified to 100% biodegrade into a non-harmful monomer that's safe for aquatic life. A recent scientific study in Germany (MARCH 2021) concludes that PVA does not meet any of the definitions of micro-plastic:
it is not micro- or nano-sized;
it is highly water-soluble; and
it is biodegradable in the environmental conditions where it is discharged
