Their mission is to provide families around the world with high quality, affordable reusable goods in the interest of helping minimize their use of single-use paper and plastic, and lessen their environmental footprint.

founding story

The business was started by a mama (the Big Bee), in Huntington Beach, California, and was inspired by her now six year-old daughter (the Little Bee). Founded in 2016, it evolved from a baby goods company to a sustainable goods company as the Little Bee grew, and the family began their own greener-living journey.

The majority of their products are their own inventions, and were created to solve problems they encountered on their journey toward sustainable living. For example, the Original ScrubBEE was created to help little ones learn to wash themselves easily and effectively. It's made out of silicone (reusable, hygienic and long-lasting), has a textured handle for easy manipulation, a solid core to avoid trapping the yucky stuff, and an adorable design that kids love.

Bios

Amy Leinbach
Owner

Amy Leinbach has been inventing since she was a little girl, but it took many years for her to build up the confidence to put something on the market. She has no formal training in anything related to inventing or business (her degrees are in education and the majority of her work experience had been in voice over), but she’s figured it all out as she’s gone along. Now she spends quite a bit of her time helping others bring their ideas to life.

She grew up in New York, went to college in Southern California, and never left. She lives with her husband, Rob, their daughter, Marlo, and two dogs, Walter and Auggie. Her family has been on a a journey toward living a more sustainable lifestyle for the paste few years, and continue to enjoy learning more about what that means every day.

testimonial

Love these towels! I have granite countertops and a glass cooktop. Cleaning with these towels there are no streaks or clouding. Since there is less water in these towels all surfaces dry very quickly. They are tough enough to scrub stuck on food. Also, they do an excellent job on stainless steel. Again, no clouding or streaks. I would highly recommend these towels. And I'm going to order more!

All Purpose Towels [Clean Bee]
I ordered the trio because my son was having so much trouble soaping up the wash cloth with his small hands. First bath after receiving the trio he and I fell in love with this product. I put one by the sink in the bathroom to help him wash his hands and in his bathtub for bathing. I gave my 13 year old one to help wash her face. Combined with the Rodan and Fields product for teen acne her face has completely cleared and is glowing. Worth every single penny.

Amazing for Family [ScrubBEE]
I got a set of straws for myself because I do not like metal ones or paper ones, and wanted something reusable. I love the colors and the way they work because you can match the straws to your cups, your wardrobe or even your mood! They are of great quality and I especially love the little cleaner that comes with it because it is so important everything be clean, especially these days. I ended up getting more for my nieces and they had loads of fun making long straws in their fave colors.
