Who We Are 

EarthSuds is a sustainable shower products company run by Laurier students. We've created the world's first single-use dissolvable tablets of shampoo, conditioner, and body wash to replace the 5.7B cosmetic plastic bottles sent to North American landfills every year. The tablets turn to liquid form when you apply water and pressure, and lather just like traditional products. However, their initial solid form means they can be kept in reusable, plastic-free shower cases. EarthSuds products are sold to hotels, retailers, and direct-to consumers via our online store. See www.earthsuds.co

 

What We’re Looking For

The primary responsibility of the Sales Representative will be to put EarthSuds in as many retailers, bed and breakfasts, campsites, and hotels as possible. This means prospecting, performing background research, cold-contacting, and pitching in person to various customers simultaneously. This role requires a high level of independence. The Sales Representative will also be expected to attend 2 team meetings weekly to report progress.

What We Offer

  • Opportunity to work and grow with a fast-growing social enterprise startup
