We are driven to create quality, trusted products that adapt with the ever-changing needs of our planet and people. We proudly disrupt markets that have poor environmental and health impacts.

Most importantly, we invite you to join us to create a better world.

• Why 1908? •

1908 refers to the year in which our Founder and CEO Steve Savage’s Great Great Uncle – William Kent – saved one of the last great Redwood Groves from being sold to lumber interests.

He bought all 300 acres and presented the property to Teddy Roosevelt and the US Government as a gift. The land is now known as Muir Woods National Park.





Just as William Kent sought to conserve the Redwood Grove, Stephen Kent Savage continues the tradition and leads 1908 Brands to help consumers make environmentally conscious choices in their daily lives.


• Our Brands •

We currently manufacture, manage and market seven natural product brands. Our family of brands with products that are healthy solutions for home and planet.

An extensive line of natural cleaning and laundry products. Dating back to 1993, Boulder Clean is a pioneer in the green cleaning product market as they focus on making cleaning products that work just as well as (if not better than) all those products that are packed with toxic chemicals.

A convenient snack that uses superfood ingredients without sacrificing taste? We got you covered. Yummari was inspired by the Rarámuri people from the Copper Canyon of Mexico. This tribe of celebrated endurance runners rely on indigenous foods (like chia) to help them run impressive distances. They inspired us—a couple of athletes to create our own superfood bites for ourselves.

Chia and hemp make it a complete protein organic snack food packed with omega 3s. Portable, gluten-free certified, nourishing, and super yummi, we’re delighted to share them with distance runners, weekend warriors, and occasional couch-and-tv lovers alike!

We envision an eco-oriented consumer audience becoming the mainstream, demanding performance in the same way their less-than-eco-friendly predecessors did.

We are constantly looking to develop new brands and products to meet this goal – feel free to contact us if you would like to join forces!
