Better Life® named to Inc. 500 List

Inc. Magazine has ranked Better Life, a natural cleaning product company on its Inc. 500|5000 List, an annual list of the fastest growing private companies in the United States. Better Life is the brainchild of Tim Barklage and Kevin Tibbs, who wanted to create a natural cleaning product alternative for consumers. The duo achieved this goal by producing plant-based products that are cruelty, fragrance, sulfate and petroleum free.


It is this natural foundation that sets Better Life apart from the competition. Its green cleaning product line is not only environmentally friendly, but also keeps people, pets and the planet safe.  Better Life is one of only a few companies to date Inc. 500 has included on the Inc. 500 List that carries all natural cleaning products.

“We knew there was a niche that needed to be filled in the cleaning product industry,” said Tibbs. “That’s why we decided to launch our green cleaning product company. We wanted to place a focus on dingy household surfaces, as well as users. Our recent placement on the Inc. 500 List proves we are accomplishing this goal, giving consumers cleaning products they can feel good about using – products that don’t sacrifice the environment for the sake of cleanliness.”

Three-year explosive sales growth earned Better Life a spot on the Inc. 500 List. During that time, the company was featured on the ABC-TV hit “Shark Tank,” launched several of its natural cleaning products in Target stores across the U.S. and Canada, and added personal care products to its already impressive list of household cleaners.

“The Inc. 500 List recognizes the work of one of America’s most important demographics – independent entrepreneurs,” said Barklage, “We are extremely proud to be listed as one of the most innovative and successful companies in the United States. Our Inc. 500 listing suggests the growth and product strategy we set forth at our inception is working, giving us hope for the future and what is yet to come.”
