Ellie & Jen Peters/Cool2Sweet
Ellie Peters is an 11-year-old entrepreneur who loves homemade stuff. She learned from school that we should protect our environment by using green products so she started making her own lip gloss and teeth whitening by using Vaseline and baking soda. They were not only safe, but also very effective.
Ellie then started making natural soaps after her cousin developed skin rashes by using other bath products. She saw the benefit of using green products and wanted to share her products with other people. In 2014, Cool 2 Sweet was born after persuading her parents to allow her to start her own business.
