Laura & Chris (partners & co-founders) started That Eco Lifestyle after travelling the world for a year and seeing the severe impact that single use plastics are having on the environment, particularly our oceans.
After returning from their travels they knew we wanted to be a part of the movement and collective of poeple and brands that are 'greening-up' Earth.
That Eco Lifestyle believes that caring for our planet needs has to be something that is part of all our lifestyles. Their mission is to create everyday essentials that stop the need for single use plastics. Whether you are on the go, travelling or in your home.
That Eco Lifestyle designs beautiful, sustainable, everyday essentials that are inspired by their deep love for the ocean. They want to make being kind to our Earth a part of people's everyday lifestyle. Plus every That Eco Lifestyle purchase gives back to cleaning up ocean plastic pollution and protecting the Great Barrier Reef with the Australian Marine Conservation Society.
"A major highlight for us has been all the incredible Australian business we have connected with and had the opportunity to have our products on websites and in stores that really align with us and our mission" - Laura, Founder of That Eco Lifestyle.
Laura's favourite product is the Sand Glass Tumbler; "I am a HUGE smoothie lover, so it's something I use everyday. Plus it's an essential that I bring when picking up any takeaway drinks from our local cafes"
For Laura and Chris, the most exciting thing in the "green world" is seeing states across Australia starting the process to ban single use plastics with some of them finally being banned!
A huge goal for That Eco Lifestyle is to become B Corp certified as well as continuing to give back to organisations that align with us.
