Eniko was born in Hungary. Her family emigrated to the United States when she was a child, but some of the key values of Eastern Europe stayed with her throughout life. Values such as frugality and rejecting the idea of ‘waste’. She ended up traveling the world during her college years, getting an MBA, and working for world’s largest consumer packaged goods companies. Although she was ‘successful’, she wasn’t happy. She saw firsthand how much waste was created in the manufacturing, shipping, and usage of everyday household items. At first she tried to change things from inside of these giant companies. But ultimately profits rule Corporate America, and so she decided to leave to find a better way. A healthier way. A more sustainable way.
And so Sans Market was born…
