Fast Company Honors Truman’s as World Changing Idea


LEXINGTON, KENTUCKY – April 8, 2019 – Fast Company has honored Truman’s as part of its World Changing Ideas Awards, which were announced today.

Launched just two months ago, Truman’s brings stark simplicity to the $30 billion home cleaning products industry. The company’s lineup of four cleaners, which are shipped directly to customers, tackle virtually all of a home’s hard surfaces.

Beyond convenience and simplicity, Truman's boasts today’s greenest cleaners by offering patented refill cartridges that eliminate single-use plastic bottles. All you do is fill your bottle with water and pop in a cartridge. When the bottle’s empty, admire your cleanliness and simply refill the same bottle with water and a new cartridge. To compare carbon footprints, it takes 31 semi-trucks filled with ready-to-use cleaners to equal just one semi-truck of the equivalent of Truman’s refill cartridges.

Truman’s was co-founded by Jon Bostock and Alex Reed, who have decades of experience with companies including General Electric and direct-to-consumer fan maker Big Ass Fans. “It’s exciting to see thought leaders like Fast Company so quickly embrace how we’re bringing real change to cleaning,” Bostock said.

Now in its third year, the World Changing Ideas Awards attracted more than 2,000 entries from across the globe. Truman’s will be highlighted in the magazine’s May issue.
