Sustainable small business uses Surface to stay agile

By / Senior Marketing Manager, Surface

The Dostals use Microsoft products and a bi-product of biodiesel creation to produce premium soaps and lotions.

With holidays approaching, along with some of the busiest shopping days of the year, we wanted to slow down and highlight a small business called Further using Surface Pro 4, Windows, Office as well as pen and touch to keep their sustainable, premium business running smoothly.

Megan and Marshall Dostal’s innovative business started out with their plan to collect waste oil from restaurants to make biodiesel. The primary bi-product of that process is glycerin, and that’s the key ingredient in soap. Now they produce Further, a sustainable, premium brand of soaps and lotions that they sell right back to those restaurants. As Marshall will tell you himself, sometimes “a small idea can turn a big idea”.
