Providing affordable and sustainable cleaning solutions for all homes in Brisbane
Alette is a born and bred Aussie, whose travels and studies have impacted her daily life. She saw the severe addiction to plastic in countries like Japan, where a single banana was wrapped in plastic and then handed to the customer in another plastic bag.
She has dedicated her life to living simpler with as small an impact as possible. Her degree in 'Sustainable Enterprise' has driven her desire to share her knowledge with the world. She knows sustainability is the more affordable option, and she wants to prove it.
Alette and Din, the Co-founders of Billy's, were astounded to see the enormous prices for sustainable services in Brisbane. They knew that being holistically sustainable actually saved them money, time and made their clients so much happier. In comes Billy's Cleaning Co., a cleaning company that goes beyond simply using 'eco' products.
Din is a Singapore native, who takes pride in his country's vision for sustaining their ever-growing population. Originally aiming to become an aircraft maintenance engineer, Din's experience in airlines opened his eyes to the severe impact the industry has on our world.
Not only the emissions but the direct erosion of local ecosystems from blasé colleagues and the toxic substances they 'disposed' of. Joining Alette, he hopes to spread awareness about the affordability and benefits of choosing a sustainable business.
Who in the heckerooni is billy?
Both Alette and Din are renters and have gone through many bond cleans. Nearly every exit clean they would complete themselves, or follow up after the paid team had been in. This sparked the idea that their attention to detail and passion for sustainability could work.
Our little icon, the blue car, is Billy. Alette's rockin' Nissan Cube.
She named him Billy the Cube when she imported him from Japan in 2017. You'll probably see him around town doing his darndest to transport Alette, Din and their cleaning equipment to keep your spaces clean and clutter-free.
But how is this car sustainable? Shouldn't you be driving a hybrid?
Alas, we would love to own an electric car, but our student sized budgets means we stick with what we've got. Between us, we only own one car. We work from home which means we don't commute everyday, and always use e10 where we can afford it. It's not the best option but it's better than nothing.
We're also big believers in using what you've got, and repairing and reloving it over and over again. We don't see the point in buying something brand new just for the sake of sustainability (it actually goes against it!). So, our mascot stays. Give him a wave if you see him!
