Meet Green Pear Organics! Showcasing at our next show, outside on May 10!
Curated by 2 sisters, Onya and Sada believe in using only the best clean, natural, & pure products in the home and on the body. We are inspired by their business model and the earth-happy household products they offer to our local community so we wanted to get to know them a bit better and share our convo with you!

Q: Why did you create Green Pear Organics?
A: We have two driving forces — personal health and the environment — and we believe they go hand-in-hand. Taking care of yourself IS taking care of the planet and vice versa. As an example, toxins have incredibly negative effects on our environment just as they do in our bodies. We are passionate about educating and sharing with others what we’ve learned on our health and eco journey and Green Pear is the perfect vehicle for this. We introduce people to easy changes, we make it as simple and as friendly as possible to go green!
Q: If someone was just starting to ‘Go Green’, what would be your number one tip to get them started?
A: Pay attention, you are your own best advocate. Learn what is in the products you are using and recognize how they are packaged —and make better decisions. Our choices and our actions can create change.
Make a commitment, even if it’s to ONE thing. We often suggest starting with laundry. It’s an easy change…and it drastically affects both health and planet. Ditch single-use plastic at every opportunity— say NO to a straw or plastic bags at the grocery store. Don’t be afraid to be inconvenienced.
Q: You own your business. What’s the best part of being an entrepreneur?
A: For us, being eco-friendly and health-aware started with our grandmothers. They were both strong, independent entrepreneurial women who taught us the old school way of doing things. We love that Green Pear Organics is a way of honoring them while embracing the entrepreneurial spirit AND spreading the green love!
Q: Who or What is saving your life these days? (Ex: coffee, book, a friend?)
A: The current attention being given to living minimally and sustainably and going zero waste and plastic-free. It’s wonderful to see. It FUELS us because the more people that recognize and embrace an eco-life the greater and the faster change will come.
Onya and Sada will be launching a Green Pear Organic Laundry Tonic for the very first time at Mermade! Made from pure organic essential oils,with 4 different scents to choose from. These 2 are inventive, smart, and a lot of fun!
