Local Businesses We Love: Live Eco

Meet the owners behind an online eco store helping Victorian consumers to be more eco-conscious.

Committed to showing consumers how easy it is to be eco-conscious in their purchases, mother and daughter duo Heather and Erin started Live Eco, an online eco store offering a wide range of products from fashion accessories to kid’s products, cleaning and kitchen items, personal care items and everything in between. Each product sold has one thing in common; they are all eco-friendly, reusable, biodegradable or made from recycled material.

The business has also teamed up with innovative recycling company TerraCycle, offering consumers a convenient recycling service for items that are more difficult to recycle such as oral care products, razors, beauty products, mobile phones and much more. Offering free pick up with any service, the Live Eco team will collect unwanted household items and recycle them in a sustainable and ethical manner.

Be sure to check out the Onya Reusable Shopping bag, a lightweight, durable shopping bag made from recyclable drink bottles as well as the Eco Bling Recycled Wood & Tyre Bow Ties, made from recycled floorboards, tables and tyres!

Local Businesses We Love: Little Earth Nest

The team at Little Earth Nest are on a mission to offer parents and families a sustainable choice when it comes to household products! 

A family business on a mission to provide original, eco-friendly resources for the environmentally conscious, Little Earth Nest offers a wide range of natural, organic and environmentally friendly products ranging from kids toys to household care products.

Beginning in 2006, the business now operates an online store as well as physical store in Grovedale, Geelong, allowing founder Pip to help families understand the benefits of eco-friendly products for both the environment and their children.

Among the product highlights includes the Replay Recycle range, a range of recycled plastic tableware for children, featuring bowls, divided plates, sippy cups, cutlery and tumblers. Equally as colourful and quirky as they are environmentally friendly, the Replay Range is a great way to take a positive step towards reducing the production of single-use plastics.

The business also operates a blog, sharing their eco-friendly tips, from recipes to daily living advice and inspiration, offering advise on sustainability, permaculture, pregnancy and parenting.
