Our Story



Start QuoteHi, I'm Pat Kane, founder of reuziEnd Quote


After becoming a mom for the first time, I started to notice the amount of rubbish we were going through every day rising at an alarming rate – from plastic wraps and bottles, to random boxes and let’s not forget about the hundreds of nappies!

I started to think: “If just 2 adults and a tiny little baby can generate so much waste, imagine an office or a school?”, proper disaster, right? Right!

My initial reaction was to educate myself on recycling and composting – two powerful initiatives that seemed to be, in theory, quick wins.

After just a few months, I realised that recycling and composting were not the only answers – we needed to address the thoughtless consumption of plastic bottles, shampoo bottles and all single-use, disposable material that we were bringing into our home every weekend, after our weekly visit to the shops. And so, we did it.

Today, I can say that we are a family that watches its consumption and tries really, really hard to avoid unnecessary waste. Our end goal is to replace everything that won’t be recycled or composted for reusable alternatives.

Based on my personal journey and my family guiding principles, I decided to create reuzi.
