Pure and simple: The clean way to clean!
We’ve always known that there is a consistent way to go through life with a clean slate and a clean ecological conscience. This aspiration planted the seed for the idea of sodasan, an idea that continues to grow today. Nearly forty years later, humanity is facing its greatest challenge of all time: the preservation of the ecosystem of our planet, for us and for future generations! Sticking our heads in the sand or pointing fingers aren’t the solution. We are convinced that every one of us can make a big difference by taking small steps. And we want to inspire and motivate others to do just that.
Join us in saving our planet, simply by cleaning the clean way!

Fresh into spring.
The sodasan liquid soap Lavender & Olive is now also available in the innovative 5 l Bag-in-Box package. This saves up to 92% plastic compared to the original product. This is how it works: refill instead of littering. Learn more about our packaging concept which was awarded as a finalist by the German Sustainability Award 2023.
Donation for Ukraine
A total of 10 pallets of urgently needed soaps and disinfectants has been provided by Sodasan for the people of Ukraine. This is a donation in kind in the amount of approx. €30,000.
“Since we were unable to reach our sales partner in Ukraine by phone or e-mail at the beginning of the war to offer our help, we joined the aid initiative “Deine Ukraine Hilfe“ of Bundesverband Naturkost Naturwaren (≈ Federal Association of Natural Food and Natural Products) BNN“, says Sodasan managing director Kerstin Stromberg.

sodasan shines in the ÖKOTEST eco-friendly product tests
We may be convinced that our products are “the clean way to clean”, but when the high quality of our products earns them an award from an independent testing organisation, we have every reason to be delighted. With five “very good” and “good” commendations from ÖKOTEST, confirm that we are on the right track.
sodasan’s management team expands
Thorsten Godau (38) joined the sodasan management board on 1 January 2022. Godau, a qualified process engineer, first joined sodasan in 2018 as Operations Manager. Today, Kerstin Stromberg and Jürgen Hack, the two founders of sodasan, are transferring the responsibility for Research and Development, Purchasing, Project Management and Manufacturing over to him.
“Thorsten Godau has exactly the right qualification and dynamics to ensure that sodasan is well positioned for the future, regarding sustainability, energy efficiency and environmentally friendly use of resources,” explains Hack. As a young family man, Godau considers it his calling to work alongside the organic pioneers Stromberg and Hack, supporting the sodasan philosophy of promoting “the clean way to clean”. He finds it fundamental to produce innovative and sustainable alternatives to conventional detergents and cleaning agents that help preserve our planet so that future generations can enjoy living on it.
Certain things are just meant to be – like the partnership between sodasan and Ozeankind®. We are united by the same goal: a clean world.
Changing the world together is the very philosophy behind the partnership between sodasan and Ozeankind®. We support their initiative and make a donation to the cause for every Limited Edition One Ocean product sold.
Let's pitch in together – for oceans without plastic!
Naturally clean as a matter of principle.
It started with a kiss: As activists in the environmental, peace and anti-nuclear movement, Jürgen Hack and Kerstin Stromberg met and fell in love in the early 80s. With a handful of their fellow activists, they embarked on their mission 'the clean way to clean'. Their goal: to offer ecological alternatives to the 'whiter than white' products from the large industrial players. Even back then, the founding team was already certain that you can win in business without sacrificing the environment. The rest is exciting history, which we are still continuing to write.
Our promise for preserving the planet.
Green and pure instead of harsh chemicals: We harness the cleansing power of natural raw materials –nearly half of which are certified organic.
Renewable energy plus reforestation: To protect the climate, our eco-friendly production plant in Ostfriesland is carbon neutral.
Too good to use just once: Our plastic bottles are made from recycled PET or recycled PE.
Refills, not landfills: With our sustainable bag-in-box packaging, you can save up to 92% of plastic waste (compared to the original product).
Join us in our 'no plastic' mission: We do not use any microplastic or water-soluble plastics in our products.
Crude oil? No thanks! When it comes to maintaining the ecological balance and preserving natural resources, we believe that petrochemical ingredients are a no-go.

Matters of the heart
We stand firmly behind people, companies and campaigns that advocate for the protection of our planet and create genuine awareness for sustainability in our society. So we're even happier when environmentalists choose to use sodasan products – such as these two fantastic initiatives, which are both close to our hearts:
Setting sail for Mission Zero!
Did you know that the international shipping industry emits more CO2 each year than the entire Federal Republic of Germany?! If we ever want to end this, we have to start getting behind more sustainable alternatives. The Timbercoast - Cargo Under Sail initiative is doing just that: With the sailing cargo vessel AVONTUUR. Founder Cornelius Bockermann and his crew use the power of the wind to transport goods across the ocean. That way, they demonstrate that there is a sustainable alternative to cargo ships, which are fuelled with heavy crude oil and resemble floating hazardous waste tankers. Just like our mission 'the clean way to clean' anchors ecological responsibility in everyday life, Timbercoast sets sail for environmental protection.
'Sea' the value of natural habitats!
The Wadden Sea of Niedersachsen is an UNESCO World Heritage Site and a marine protection reserve that is home to common and grey seals. Sadly, every year, up to 150 pups are separated from their mothers, because humans carelessly invade their natural habitat. This is when the Norddeich Seal Sanctuary springs into action: Volunteer vets and helpers care for these little pups until they are big enough to be released into the wild of the North Sea. We support this important work by sponsoring seals. This way we help protect the species and help to preserve this unique natural paradise right at our doorstep.
