Our birth Story
Elsewhere Supply began in a Chicago apartment in 2017 between two friends. Ahead of an international business trip to Tokyo, co-founder Lisa Chapman said “I hate packing my toiletries.” And asked fellow founder Lynn Marcello “Where can I order a customized toiletry kit?”
After searching for an affordable option online to no avail, the idea was born.
Centered around delivering a hassle-free solution, Lisa and Lynn created the new way to pack and travel with personal care products and designed customizable, TSA-ready travel kits, perfect for one time use. After countless strategy sessions, handmade toiletry kits and product tests, Elsewhere Supply officially launched in the summer of 2018.
We built Elsewhere Supply to help people look and feel their best wherever they go. And while we recognize that not everyone has the same access to travel, we believe everyone deserves a home.
That’s why we’re partnering with organizations that offer long-term housing options to women experiencing homelessness or facing barriers in finding a stable home.
To help support those organizations and women, we will donate a bottle of shampoo, conditioner, body wash or a needed personal care item for every Elsewhere Supply travel kit purchased.
