Jen is the owner of Living Eco. She started her business in March 2018 out of a desire to make a change for herself and her family. This little project has already grown beyond expectation and Jen has been blown away by the response. With a strong belief that by creating awareness, motivating and teaching people about the harm of plastic on our environment, we can make a difference, Jen has thought out and carefully planned every item in the range down to the last detail.
By providing beautiful alternatives to single use plastic, she encourages us to be conscious consumers and hopes to show that being eco-friendly can be easy and affordable.
This business constantly reminds Jen how much people care and how they want to make the necessary changes to save our beautiful planet. Let’s all stand together and keep our earth magnificent for generations to come.
WHY WE LOVE THEM
The ethos and values behind Jens business, Living Eco, align perfectly to what Epiphany stands for. Encouraging a conscious consumer who supports small, local and female run businesses is where our heart lies. Being conscious is simply being aware of the choices you are making and the impact those choices are having. A huge part of that includes not only the impact on our people and community, but also the impact on our planet.
We try our best to promote sustainability, purchasing well and shopping for items that are made to last.
Living Eco is just that. Jen has created a beautiful yet affordable range of quality, plastic free products that make it easy to save our planet. Just by visiting the Living Eco website you can tell that every product, material, even photograph, has been carefully thought out and created with so much love.
The heart of Living Eco feels very connected to our own, and we are so pleased to be able to showcase this beautiful store.
FAVOURITE FINDS FROM THEIR LATEST COLLECTION
ROSE GOLD INSULATED CUP
ON MY WISHLIST
I saw this 600ml Insulated Cup online and immediately added it to a want list somewhere in the back of my mind. Every time I've seen it since, it reminds me of how pretty it could be to drink things on the go!! But besides that being the obvious, I have now seen this lovely creation in person and the quality is impeccable.
These handy insulated cups are perfect for smoothies, juices, coffees, shakes and water. They are double walled - keeping drinks hot or cold for longer. Use for take away drinks or make at home and sip on the way to work as they conveniently fit most cup holders. Drink straight from the sliding lid or use one Living Eco's Stainless Steel Straws.
EARTHLY TOOTHPASTE BITS
ON MY WISHLIST
Did you know that approx. 1,5 billion toothpaste tubes are discarded every year?
Besides the plastic tubes (which are made from a mix of materials that are difficult to recycle through conventional methods, and therefore usually end up in landfills and oceans, taking hundreds of years to decompose)
actual toothpaste contains some chemicals that when rinsed out your mouth and down the drain, leak into rivers, lakes and ocean downstream, causing serious water pollution.
As people we spend around 3,000 hours brushing our teeth during our lifetime!!
It can't be ignored that this twice daily habit needs a little adjustment if we have any hope for the well being of our planet.
Earthly Toothpaste Bits are a great Eco Friendly Alternative. Cruelty Free, Vegan and 100% Natural. Simply bite until fully disintegrated and brush with a wet toothbrush. Each Tin contains 60 bits.
ADULTS BAMBOO TOOTHBRUSH
ON MY WISH LIST
So now that I have given you a lecture on toothpaste, I may as well give you the stats on the rest of the process.
Not only do toothbrushes pollute oceans and beaches, but the chemicals these silly little things are made up of are released into the air as they settle in landfills. Lovely! More pollution to breathe in.
It takes over 400 years for a toothbrush to decompose. I don't know about you but that is a lot longer than I plan to be around for.
If we are going to be conscious about our impact on this earth, we have to start taking our choices seriously.
So if we are prepared to change up the tubes for Earthly Bits then I don't see why it wouldn't be an obvious decision to replace our plastic toothbrush with the Living Eco Biodegradable Bamboo Toothbrushes.
P.S. Medium bristles with activated charcoal, which keeps your teeth looking pearly white. 175mm
Note: these need to be disposed of in the correct way to avoid further damage to our environment
