Launched in 2019, the Canada’s Top Growing Companies editorial ranking aims to celebrate entrepreneurial achievement in Canada by identifying and amplifying the success of growth-minded, independent businesses in Canada. In total, 400 companies earned a spot on this year’s ranking. Details on Tru Earth’s placement will be published in the October issue of Report on Business magazine—out now—and online at tgam.ca/TopGrowing.
“Launching a zero waste, compact, disruptive product into a well entrenched consumer packaging market allowed Tru Earth to fill a gap in the system,” said Brad Liski, CEO and Co-founder. “People were seeking a better way of doing laundry and we were able to fill that need. Then utilizing 25 years of subscription experience, the co-founders (Ryan McKenzie, Kevin Hinton and I) were able to distribute the product globally at a very cost-effective rate. The entire organization was built to scale and the customer response has been exceptional.”
Further, Tru Earth invested heavily in customer acquisition and started a social media movement which kept the flywheel turning. The company’s single greatest achievement in the past three years is the elimination of more than 1.5 MILLION plastic jugs from landfill sites and donating more than 2 Million loads of laundry to those in need. These achievements, while building a brand from $0 to a run rate of $26 Million, make the financial achievements pale in comparison to the fact that Tru Earth, along with more than 160,000 customers, are actually helping save the planet.
