By introducing a plastic-free alternative, we are helping to reduce the amount of plastic produced by every single shampoo bottle purchase. And since Nohbo is completely waste-free, you don’t have to worry about throwing away any plastic bottles after you run out!
Nohbo is small and contains
Nohbo balls are quarter sized and fit comfortably in the palm of your hand. Which makes them perfect for taking them with you outdoors, or even for storing in your bathroom.
Nohbo is easy to use. Once exposed to water, the Nohbo ball starts to dissolve into a lathery shampoo to use on your hair. Simply run the Nohbo shampoo ball under water, rub in your hands until you create a good lather then massage into your hair
Great uses for Nohbo
No more of those nasty rings of who-knows-what accumulating under the bottles in your shower. With Nohbo, you don’t need a bottle at all. Just grab a Nohbo ball before your shower and use it like any other shampoo. It’s cleaner, easier, and better for the planet.
Nohbo takes the guesswork out of travel: 7 day trip = 7 showers = 7 Nohbo balls. It’s that easy. No more travel-sized plastic containers. No more worrying about bottles leaking in your luggage. Nohbo balls are always light and dry — take as many as you need!
Hiking with heavy liquids, you always risk ending up with a pack full of soapy clothes. Since Nohbo balls are dry until exposed to water, you can pack light and confident. Plus, you’ll leave your favorite places just as beautiful as you found them. Explore your world waste-free with Nohbo’s compostable packaging.
Plastic can take up to 1,000 years to decompose. Yet even after that much time, plastic remnants can still plague our ecosystems. As plastic degrades it breaks into tinier plastics called micro-plastics. These micro-plastics get into our food supply, fish, animals, and ecosystem in ways not seen to the human eye. In turn, they disrupt digestion and can sometimes cause toxic effects in living organisms. While recycling can help reduce this effect, it is not a consistent solution.
Not many people recycle. In fact, 4 out 5 people don’t recycle any items from their bathrooms. And even then, the items that do end up in a recycling bin rarely actually get re-purposed… Collecting recyclables isn’t cheap either—it uses about 50 to 60 percent of the budget of a typical curbside recycling program. In addition, most recycling programs are costly, burn more energy for the trucks to pick up the recycled items, and take a long time to process.
Hi. My name is Benjamin Stern, and I am the CEO and Founder of Nohbo. On Friday, February 19th, I got the deal of a lifetime on Shark Tank with Mark Cuban. My journey first started 2 years ago when I was 14. The idea for a single use, bottle-less shampoo ball seemed so simple. I was shocked to find there was no one on the market selling this kind of product. So I sought out to make my own. I have learned that the process of starting a business requires a lot more than just an idea. It takes tenacity and courage to pursue a dream.
I ask of you the environmentalist, the traveler, the outdoorsman, and of course the bathers such as myself, to please help us fund this Indiegogo campaign, so we can change this industry for the better!
