Ethically Sourced Products & Suppliers
We are an aspiring B Corp company. That means we and the companies we work with are held to the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance.
I founded this business after many years of searching for what I was passionate about. I have always had a love for animals and nature but never saw how I could realistically have time to make a difference let alone make it something I am able to do for work everyday.
The time I spent as a fashion buyer really opened my eyes to the world of waste and consumerism. Visiting supplier factories overseas and retail stores and shopping centres around the world gave me an overall understanding of the lifecycle of a single product and it began to make me wonder if it was right.
The once shiny lights and excitement of the retail world didn’t appeal to me anymore. It was a very confusing time as the only thing I had ever known was the retail industry. I was even nominated as a finalist in the Young Retailer of the Year Awards but that same year I decided to quit retail for good.
The next few years were a blur of highs and lows, travel, failed start ups and working with my partner in his IT business. It wasn’t until Plastic Free July 2018 came around that I realised I could use my skills I had developed in the retail and tech industry to actually be able to help the environment and raise awareness for a low waste lifestyle. This is the start of the journey, thanks for being here!
