Marcel Belt

Chief Soap Officer

Marcel Belt

"What I would like about Marcel's Green Soap is that we are really making an impact with a small team. More and more people know us and more and more people are talking about us. The best thing about working at Marcel's Green Soap is that everyone is there every every day and that we are successful. Every week there is another success to be achieved. And somewhere in my head there is a little voice that says that this could become very big. No business like soap business! And if I I'm not into soap? I love adventure travel (I have to keep an eye on my footprint). I would also like to say that I can play the saxophone, but all three of my daughters don't think so...:)"

"As a Junior Operations Manager at The Green Soap Company, I am responsible for ensuring that the logistics run smoothly. Outside of working hours I like to be in the kitchen, where I enjoy cooking as a creative outlet. I also like the dishwashing liquid radish and bergamot smell wonderful and use them after a good cooking session. I also cherish my plants for relaxation. In my role at this sustainable company, my love for good smells, cooking and greenery come together perfectly."

"Since the beginning of Marcel's Green Soap, I have been working on coming up with new, sustainable products and improving the current product range. One of my greatest passions is also one of the greatest passions of Marcel's Green Soap: scents! Scents, ingredients and sustainable packaging play an important role for us, so as a product developer it is never boring. Because innovation is our strength, I am in daily contact with suppliers and manufacturers to jointly create the most beautiful sustainable products. In my spare time I I can often be found in nature with my child, and I collect old perfumes!"

"As a business controller you have the luxury of choosing the industry in which you work. Numbers will always be numbers, unless you find a super cool organization with a great story behind those numbers. And that is exactly why I worked for the Green Soap Company I love all our products, not only because they contribute to a better world, but also because they are wonderful to use. Outside of work, I am a dedicated mother of three, so let's just say my laundry baskets are never empty and my house can always use a cleaning - I absolutely don't mind with our delicious products!"

"If I'm enthusiastic about something, everyone gets to hear it! Then I don't stop talking about our latest innovation or how we want to positively change the industry. When I talk to friends about Marcel's Green Soap, a bell usually rings. ringing, but not for everyone. Fortunately, it is my job to ensure that everyone knows us and uses our fantastic products. As a born and bred Brabander, I love cooking, eating and drinking delicious food with friends. You can see me on the tennis court, in a sailboat or on a hike. I think it would be super cool to climb Mount Everest, ain't no mountain high enough!"

"I recently joined the Green Soap team as Brand Manager. I like to combine commercial with creative, but it also has to add something to the world. Within the company I am mainly concerned with campaigns, product launches and partnerships. When I If I'm not busy with that for a while, I'll probably be in a fanatic sports class or discovering nice new catering spots in Amsterdam (balance is key, right?)"

"I really enjoy working at Marcel's Green Soap. Together with a very nice and friendly team, we work hard to make the world a bit greener. And that with very nice and colorful products! In my work I can enjoy being creative and finally my social media addiction comes in handy ;) I also love having a drink on a terrace or I'm always up for a nice city trip!"

“Why do I jump on my bike in the morning with a smile? Working for Marcel's Green Soap is working for a brand that not only makes the company, but also the world a little better. Every day we work with a small team on a big mission: making the entire laundry & cleaning products market sustainable. To be able to contribute to such a wonderful mission and make an impact together is very satisfying. And when I get home? Then I play a game with my son, take a sports lesson or try a recipe from Ottolenghi's latest cookbook.”

Online Marketing Manager

At Marcel's Green Soap we challenge the traditional, less sustainable market by showing how important sustainability is. We work hard and act quickly, which leads to creative marketing campaigns and innovative products. It's great to see that more and more people know our brand. Outside the bubble, I enjoy being with family and friends, watching TikTak with my daughter (not to be confused with TikTok), enjoying cooking (and eating), following Arsenal matches or being active on the football field or tennis court.

"I have enjoyed working at Green Soap Company for a number of years now. From a small startup to a fully-fledged company. Every year I get new colleagues. That's so much fun! We are all working to introduce more and more people to our fantastic products, wonderful scents and good for our planet. Satisfied, I get back on my bike at the end of the day and head home. With a glass of wine and music on, I then stand in the kitchen to prepare dinner."

"The nice thing about working at Marcel's Green Soap is that every day looks different! We are still small and have to help each other where we can. In addition, the market is constantly changing and no one can ignore sustainability anymore. The ultimate goal is of course everyone spontaneously thinks of Marcel's Green Soap when it comes to sustainable cleaning and personal care. In addition to my work, I can regularly be found on the tennis or padel court, with my son on the football field or on my racing bike (also towards office!). And of course it's always nice to 'reset' during a nice holiday with the family."

"No day is the same, we work in a small & driven team and want to take advantage of all opportunities! In addition, it also contributes to preserving our planet, something we all attach great importance to. In my role as Junior As an account manager, I have a diverse client portfolio from online to retail, so there is no shortage of diversity in my work! In addition to my work, I can often be found on the hockey field or on the sidelines in a committee, and I am always up for a game."
