Episode 145 Kate Westad, Founder, Palette by Pak

Kate Westad is the inventor and founder of Palette by pak, a refillable, reusable, sustainable beauty system.  While packing for a trip after a long day at the office, she realized that there had to be a better way to bring, store, and reuse the many goops, glops & glam™️ she was taking with her on her vacation.  As an attorney by trade, Kate began the research process and soon learned that the beauty industry was fueling its sustainability crisis. With statistics including the ones below, Kate knew she had to change the beauty industry from disposable to sustainable.  She's a Forbes Next 1000 honoree, has been featured in Glossy, Martha Stewart, Travel + Leisure, Women's Health, Glamour, and more.
