Hi, I'm Hazel the founder and owner of Little Eco Shop.
You are likely visiting our store because you are eco-conscious or want help to find ways of becoming more eco-friendly. Well, you’ve come to the right place! I’m making it my mission to help as many Australians as possible, take simple and easy steps in becoming that little bit more ‘green’ without breaking the bank. I believe if we all try to make little eco changes, we can make a huge difference to the health of our planet.
You may have seen the phrase ‘“It’s just one straw”, said 8 billion people’ around. It’s a great example of what we are trying to do, encouraging you to make one small substitution or change to an eco product in your daily life, in the hope that together we can make a world of difference.
I hope you like the range of products we’ve carefully selected but please don’t hesitate to get in touch if there is something specific you'd like that we don’t currently stock.
My introduction to zero-waste living came several years ago when a young woman, roughly my age, appeared on Channel 10’s the Project, toting a small jar that she said held one year’s worth of her household waste. I was gobsmacked. Interest firmly piqued, I began researching ways to reduce my household waste and why this was important. Some 67 million tonnes of garbage each year makes its way to hundreds of landfill sites – that’s 2.7 tonnes per person, per year!
Keep reading to learn how you can start your transition to zero waste. It’s worthwhile to remember that transitioning to zero waste is just that – a transition. It doesn’t happen instantly, but with one small, consistent step after another. Just like healthy eating or learning a new skill, you might slip up from time to time and that’s okay. Doing zero waste imperfectly is better than not doing it at all.
One way that women, specifically, can make a dent in environmental pollution, water wastage and plastic use, is by overhauling their sanitary supplies. Now, more than ever, caring for the earth needs to be at the forefront of the collective mind. Never underestimate your power to effect change.
There are so many great reusable options when it comes to periods and their gaining popularity has seen them become widely available, with lower price points, making waste-free periods attainable for all.
