Our Story

"I’ve been mesmerised by the rainforest ever since I went on a family trip to Sri Lanka at the age of nine. As an adult, I’ve been fortunate to explore several rainforests and jungles: from the volcanic rainforest of Indonesia to the mountain-covered jungles of Laos. My passion lies in preserving and protecting the rainforest habitat." - Louis (Co-founder)

"It’s long been a passion of mine to reduce single-use plastic water bottles and the catastrophic amount of landfill waste they generate. As co-founder of TouCan, I’m leveraging my experience of the packaging industry to confront this challenge head on – by launching an easily recyclable alternative that positively impacts our environment." - Vitaliy (Co-founder)

After a joint trip to the Southern Japanese temperate rainforest in 2022, we decided to pool our joint passion and team up to launch TouCan
