JOSHUA ONYSKO, FOUNDER & CEO

Some call him sagely, most call him a wunderkind, yet everyone can agree on one thing: Pangea Organics’ founder and CEO, Joshua Onysko, is an exemplary model for smart, successful eco-living for both civilians and corporations alike. He thinks outside the landfill, and it shows in the company he runs, the products he makes, and the people he inspires. 

 

GENESIS OF GENIUS

It was Onysko’s personal devotion and commitment to inspiring social sustainability that sparked the inception of Pangea Organics in 2000. Throughout Pangea's growth, Onysko, 34, has retained private ownership of his company, never straying from its vision: Ecocentric Bodycare: Always Beneficial, Never Artificial. He realized that corporations were inheriting the earth and that, by leading by example, there was potential to influence others to reconsider their ways. To propel the momentum of this new paradigm of social responsibility, a portion of Pangea’s profits go to support the important work of Women for Women International, a non-profit dedicated to helping women survivors of war rebuild their lives through rights awareness education and job skills training.

 

DISTINCTION AT A GLANCE

Through his stewardship, Pangea Organics became the first company to introduce (and be awarded for) biodegradable, compostable, plantable packaging; Facebook/Twitter on packaging; and origami fold packaging. His efforts and products have been lauded by Entrepreneur, O (The Oprah Magazine), Time Style & Design, among many other top tier media outlets.

To date, Onysko and Pangea’s efforts have been recognized in 53 notable awards since 2006, including: Entrepreneur of Distinction (Espirit) Award ’08, Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2007 & 2008 (Rocky Mountain Regional Finalist in the category of Socially & Environmentally Responsible), Redbook’s 2007 MVP Beauty Awards (for Facial Creams, Facial Scrub and Facial Cleanser), Gala Spa Award (Germany), and the New Business Journal Business Achievement Award ’07 (in the category of Environmental & Sustainability).  With his feet rooted on the ground and his head admirably in the clouds, Onysko is also a renowned sustainable eco-living speaker, and has been profiled in numerous leading print, online, radio and broadcast media outlets.

The Pangea Organics facial and body care collections – available in Whole Foods Market, independent spas, natural grocers and pangeaorganics.com, and in the global markets of the United States, Australia, Canada, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines and Switzerland – includes lip balms, facial cleansers, facial toners, facial creams, facial mask, facial scrub, eye cream, balancing oil, bar soaps, body washes, foaming hand soaps, body lotions and body oils. 

Onysko remains committed to creating products that are always organic, nurturing, handcrafted, fair-trade (whenever possible) and cruelty-free. The products are never made using petrochemicals, parabens, GMOs or other synthetic or harmful ingredients. 

THE FUTURE

Onysko and Pangea’s number one goal is to create a new understanding of health and beauty.  With this, they hope to reinvent the way we, as a society, nurture our bodies and raise the bar for other companies.  In his own words: “What we consume today directly impacts how we – and future generations – will live tomorrow.”
