If you're like me and need some creative ideas for your last-minute Christmas list, I've compiled my favourite eco-friendly and ethical Australian brands to make sustainable gift giving a little easier for you.
Innovative circular brands who chose to use recycled leather save thousands of waste from reaching landfill every year, and in the case of The Elsewhere Co., a single product saves up to 200grams of waste. The production process itself creates zero manufacturing material waste too.
My dream zero-plastic pram does not exist, but this is the next best thing. When it comes to baby products and having to choose from plastic options, I know that investing in quality means longevity - and that's sustainable too.
Scrunchies have become a sustainable, zero-waste statement for fashion brands and a practical way to minimise fabric offcuts and waste. Help reduce waste and tame your mane sustainably with my pick of the bunch for Australian designed, ethical and sustainable scrunchies...
I believe that fashion should be consciously made with people and the planet prioritised over profits, and I believe it can co-exist with morals without compromising on style. Good fashion should make you feel good, inside and out, but not at the expense of the maker, and this is exactly what the team at Brooke Da Cruz believe in too.
Quality lingerie is a decadent treat and a little luxury that every woman should own - even if only one piece. Lingerie should be cherished and admired, and when ethically and sustainably made, the right lingerie is a wardrobe staple that can be styled in and out of the bedroom too.
When Patrice was on the hunt for that handbag herself - that special, luxurious and well-made bag that every woman dreams about - the seeds of ZURII were sown. Any bag wouldn't 'just do' though, and Patrice yearned for a bag with a story.
A woman's bag is her best friend; it holds every object she needs on a daily basis and it goes absolutely everywhere with her. When it comes to a handbag, every detail is important, and quality is a must.
Eloïse’s careful craft is commonly known as botanical dyeing; it's a natural dyeing process that extracts colour and texture from Australian leaves, flowers and berries, which are wrapped in silk and steamed.
Determined to establish an ethical brand synonymous with luxury, Tarn's values are embodied in each Ocre Designs bag, and her commitment to quality is obvious. Ocre Designs bags are Australian designed, Australian made, ethically handcrafted in limited runs, and they encapsulate the essence of natural landscapes.
