'We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children’
It started with becoming a Mother.
I’ve been working towards being more eco and sustainable for a long time, but it was only when I had my own children that I began a journey towards a simpler lifestyle that embraced all areas of my life - tiny living, minimalism, gentle parenting, nature, free play and the use of natural, organic and minimal waste products as often as possible.
As a naturopath and herbalist, I was searching for products to use for both myself and my family that were truly natural and ‘eco-friendly’. Time after time, I found products that claimed to have these features but as I looked more closely, I found that they really weren’t. They would contain additives in the products, were not sustainable and the ethics of the company often focused more on profit than on values.
I began researching and embarked on a journey of making my own products to save on packaging and to know exactly what went into them. The first product I made was a belly balm, due to my growing belly at the time. I loved using it so much that I shared it with my friends and family. Before I knew it, my first product ‘Connect’ was born.
Eco at Heart is my line of products for mama and child. I guarantee that all products are made with love, with minimal impact to the earth (from sourcing through to manufacturing and packaging) and that truly nourish you and your baby. There are no hidden additives and values come before profit - always.
I’ve embraced motherhood with arms wide open. I’ve researched, read, experienced and found what feels good to me and my family. I feel so passionately about the importance of empowering and supporting pregnant and new mamas through sharing what I’ve found while creating honest, simple products that I just had to change the direction of Eco at Heart from selling reusable straws to becoming completely holistic and family focused.
I dream of this being more than a line of products, but also a community of mothers on a similar journey. A place where we can empower, inspire and educate each other and grow and learn together.
