FURTHER Products is owned & operated by Megan & Marshall Dostal, with occasional after-school help from their 8 year old son.
For years, Marshall, a guy who drove a bio-diesel fueled automobile & brought his own shopping bags to the market way before it was fashionable, picked-up depleted waste grease from some of America’s finest restaurants. He then converted it into bio-fuel.
Megan, a former event planner for Vogue Magazine, walked into the garage & became alarmed at what her husband had accumulated: drums of glycerin, a byproduct of the bio-fuel distillation process.
Megan stared at her grease-covered soul mate & lovingly suggested he clean up his act.
That’s when Marshall decided to take things one-step FURTHER. He put the glycerin to use by creating a hand soap – Megan loved the idea, but was not a fan of the smell. So she joined the team & got to work.
Together, they developed a signature fragrance from the oils of bergamot, olive, and grasses to create a scent that is at once clean, fresh & sweetly aromatic. The restaurants that provided the waste grease started using the soap, & FURTHER Products was born.
Today, Marshall still picks-up waste grease from local restaurants but the biofuel is created in a warehouse, not the garage. And Megan has traded-in her SUV for a vintage diesel wagon and Marshall’s biofuel now powers two family cars and one company truck.
The soap has been joined by a hand lotion, a dish soap, two candles and a bar soap!
FURTHER Products are available at fine hotels, restaurants and retailers nationwide.
Our products are DERIVED FROM locally sourced depleted vegetable oil, refined into biofuel and then ARTFULLY CONVERTED into EXCEPTIONAL GLYCERIN SOAP, GLYCERIN LOTION, and SOY CANDLES.
Our BIOFUEL DISTILLATION PROCESS drives our vehicles, and the pure GLYCERIN BYPRODUCT drives FURTHER.
FRAGRANT OILS of BERGAMOT, OLIVE AND GRASSES are combined to create PRODUCTS that are at once FRESH, SUSTAINABLE, and PLEASINGLY AROMATIC.
We hope you enjoy using FURTHER as much as we ENJOY MAKING IT.
