This Woman Turns Ski Poles Into Toilet Plungers | My Shopify Business Story

Three years ago in the scenic mountains
of Canmore, Alberta, just an hour outside of Calgary, one woman made a decision
that changed her life forever. Mom, dad, I’m moving home to start a
plunger company. I’m Kelly I’m the owner and
founder of Big Dump Plungers, and I put the poo in “entrepooneur”. So a couple summers ago I had a ton of weddings and I didn’t know what to
get my friends for a wedding gift. I thought well wedding gifts
are supposed to be household items right? So why not give them a
toilet plunger and then I thought well they’re all skiers, why can’t I combine a
ski pole and a toilet plunger? So I made them all ski pole plungers and I said
congratulations on taking the plunge. Boom, Big Dumps was born. My heart lies in recycling because I see the problem. So at Big Dump Plungers the whole goal
is to save things from the dump. So Big Dump, saving things from the dump. So what I do is I go to
golf courses, ski hills, hockey arenas, and I recognize that there
is a surplus of discarded equipment that nobody is doing anything with. I just call him up I’m like, “hey you got the stuff?” And so I get everything donated to
me and then we upcycle it into plungers. When I started the business I started
the business with a $150. I had absolutely nothing so I got
really really creative with my marketing. What I did is that I went out
and I bought a wagon and a toilet. And I pulled it around and I took it out to the most beautiful locations in my backyard and I did #PoopWithAView and I get so
many so many great looks. My goal is to have everyone change
how they look at a recycled item. It is ridiculous, it’s outrageous, but they’re gag gifts for people. They make people laugh and at the end of the
day to me, if I can make people laugh then I think I’m doing really well. Oh my God I just fell through the toilet.

    You're using the wrong type of plunger for a toilet. The one you are using is for flat surfaces such as a sink. Fail.
