As an Eco we are committed to caring for country.
Our 2021 Vision: The Power of One is inspired by the belief that each and every one of us has the power to make change.
As we welcome the change of seasons in the north, its a good time to refresh and renew our ideas for choosing green.
Some of the ways we care for country each and every day that you can help support are:
🧺 We have boomerang bag baskets in both our stores. We welcome you to drop by your unwanted shopping bags for others to use. And when you shop with us, choose to reuse and grab a bag from the basket. Or better still bring your own!
🌐 Our devices are powered by Ecosia, meaning each time we are online we are contributing to planting trees
🚚 We give priority to selecting gifts handmade by local Makers and Kreators, or if items travel to us we choose to support those who care for country. Find out more of their stories in our Makers & Kreators blog
🎁 We showcase gifts that are made from upcycled, recycled or organic materials or at end of life can be repurposed. This month we feature new tea towels and candles by Tiwi Art by Lulu
📖 We have a Good Reads for Good Deads initiative at our Port Douglas store, where you drop by and pick up preloved inspirational and eco friendly magazines like Frankie, Small Collective, Peppermint and more (saving them from going to waste)
🏷️We use washi tape and kraft tags to price our products for display
👗Our Darwin store features our Higher Attire for Young Stars initiative, gifting preloved formal wear to women in need of a dress to help celebrate their success
📝We choose eco stationery and cleaning supplies, recycle our ink cartridges and do all we can to reduce our footprint in store.
📦We reuse and recycle packaging from any deliveries
💸We choose to pay extra for a carbon offset with our power companies.
🌿Our stores are refreshed by greenery, we love our plants!
We also regularly share stories across our social media platforms that highlight ways to connect with and care for country. Follow us for more inspiration...
