As it is wont to do, life is rarely a straight path. It is fraught with winding curves and unexpected obstacles, a fact that Freshique’s Founder, Jill, learned firsthand. In 2012 she experienced a debilitating neurological disorder that greatly affected her lower extremities and confined her to a wheelchair for months. She was diagnosed with Peripheral Neuropathy, and as she learned more about the condition, she slowly realized the life she had come to know was now crumbling into something completely new, all around her. As both a mother and an entrepreneur, she had no shortage of stress in her life. And yet, that was the very thing she would have to change, else it would continue to affect her emotional, mental, and physical health.
After meeting with an MD specialist who recommended holistic methods of healing, Jill managed to emerge on the other side of the traumatic experience with her head held high and a new perception of the world. Dedicated to living a healthier life, both for herself and the environment, Jill applied herself to educating others on the importance of natural remedies, and shared her message whenever and wherever she could. All too aware of the phrase ‘life is short,’ Jill wanted to make a lasting impact in the world, slowly but surely.
For as long as she could remember, Jill had been passionate about improving the lives of children, families, and those less fortunate, as well as helping to heal the environment. After discussing her views and experiences with her cousin Patricia, something amazing happened. Their one-off discussion became daily brainstorms—they are both mothers who shared the same beliefs and advocated for the same causes—thus, Freshique was born.
Freshique is an eco-friendly company that is committed to creating and offering products that recognize the quality and value of nature. As conscious consumers themselves, everyone at Freshique understands the impact of buying products that can harm Mother Earth. So, Freshique carefully chooses products that are natural, eco-friendly, and sustainable. And yet, Freshique is more than just a business.
For Patricia, Freshique was a breath of fresh air. It was aligned with her goals and lifestyle choices, providing eco-friendly, natural, and sustainable products for on-the-go moms. When this realization hit her, the next step was obvious. Promoted under the Instagram blog @helloecomoms, Patricia and Jill have worked tirelessly to create a community that promotes and enjoys buying environmentally-friendly products and living sustainable lives.
In 2021, Freshique took it one step further and has actively partnered with an orphanage in the Philippines. As an adoptive parent herself, Jill has an unending desire to provide a chance at a better life to as many children as possible, and she is achieving this by donating a percentage of every sale to the orphanage. For every $10 in sales generated, $1 will be donated to the organization to help deliver food, supplies, and clothing. Customers are also welcome to donate more and/ or directly to the orphanage.
For the rest of 2021 and onward, Freshique is fully committed to supporting suppliers that share the same values: ethical fair trade practices, traceability of product origin, eco-sustainability, and health and wellness. It is at Freshique’s core to continue promoting healthy, sustainable, and environmentally-friendly products and lifestyle choices, and we aren’t slowing down anytime soon.
