We build a new consumption model that works better for our children's health and our planet.

UpChoose Sustainability model


Our mission


We create services that eliminate excess and waste by reconnecting us with what we truly need while improving access to natural and healthy products. We focus on key life moments and we start at the beginning: birth.




UpChoose cares about customers

Reduce excess

At UpChoose, we think that the best way to solve a problem is to not create it in the first place. So we designed a service that sends you what you truly need and helps you avoid excess. Fewer shipments, less clutter, less waste.
