The viral sensation, Bite, has taken over the personal care market, with one mission in mind–to empower change one little bite at a time.
The sustainable hygiene company was created to show how our daily routines and lifestyles have an effect on our environment, from plastic tubes to brushes to harsh chemicals. Through their 5 pillars and core values, Bite has taken steps further in creating a clean future while reducing waste and aiding our planet. Their 2022 Sustainability Report outlines their impact, aid, and future endeavors for the company and the planet.

Bite believes that transparency and sustainability are at the heart of everything they do and give a meaning to the ‘why,’ or purpose. They are bringing people clarity of what they are getting in their products, ingesting into their bodies, and giving back to the environment.
