The Eco Friendly living Co was born out of my desire to change our shopping and product habits in our own home. I’ve always been passionate about wildlife, raising awareness and fundraising for various environmental and health charities. In 2014, I flew to Namibia to work in an animal sanctuary and research facility, what I learned there about the impact humans have on wildlife has never left me. In 2019, we decided that some changes in our own lives were in order, to ensure we were living more sustainably so I spent time searching eco-friendly living. Throughout my search, I was amazed at what sustainable product alternatives were out there, yet we didn’t know about them. Fast forward to the following year and The Eco Friendly Living Co was born!
As you can imagine ethos and brand values are at the absolute core of what I do. My aim with our store is to encourage families to ditch the single-use plastic and switch to more sustainable product alternatives.
It is also important to use that I use this platform to give back. 2020 was my first year in business and I ran several campaigns throughout the year where I pledged to plant trees for every order placed. My charity partner for these pledges is One Tree Planted who plant trees in areas where it is deemed they are needed the most. Since launch, thanks to my awesome customers, I have now planted 259 trees and launched several charity campaigns.
