As Earth Day is coming up, we'd love to introduce you to the people who inspire us the most to keep growing and evolving on our journey to sustainability. We get our best tips from them and we had to share with you the incredible people who keep us motivated to make a change everyday!
We'll start with Samantha Merritt, a digital creator showing us the benefits of slow living and taking the time to make conscious choices. Her beauty and skincare recommendations are some of our favourites! We asked her a few questions to get to know the person behind the influencer:
- Where abouts do you currently call home?
I am currently living in rural north South Aus.
- What’s your favourite part of having such a loyal following?
I truly love how passionate my followers are! Everyone gets so pumped about sustainability and I love hearing how people have changed up the way way they shop because of something I've said around sustainable shopping.
- Who’s your favourite artist and why? (Musician, painter, designer, anyone!)
My favorite artist is Cy Twombly, his pieces feel like if someone painted what the inside of my mind would look like ahah
- Your favourite city in the world?
Favorite city is Melbourne hands down (sorry Adelaide)
- How about your favourite beach?
My favorite beach is this tiny little spot out of Noosa heading north, its so secluded and feels like a hidden get away.
- 5 things you can’t live without… go!
Sunscreen, water bottle, my ipod, pasta and my cat ahaha
- What is your favourite quote?
"Be the change you want to see"
- What is your best Eco Tip to share with others?
My best eco tip is do your best because we need a lot of people doing a bit instead of a few people doing a lot.
- If you could say one thing to our Mother Earth, what would it be?
- What’s one cause that you would want people to rally behind and why?
I really want people to rally behind shopping slow and sustainable, clothing and accessories create so much trash and the whole fast fashion industry is incredibly dangerous.

You hear us talking about our 'Plant Dyed Apparel' but what does that actually mean and how on earth does one dye clothing with plants you ask!? I know, it's a buzzy concept and one that I too couldn't quite believe when I first heard about it either. But guess what? This is where it all started! Plants are where the original colours started... and we are here to bring it back - no chemicals added!
My Mother in law first made this for me many moons ago and it was instant love at first bite! Tangy yet fresh, more-ish yet healthy. This lemon tomato pasta has all the ingredients to warrant being on the weekly meal schedule without too much hassle. Hey, it's even good enough to wow your pals for dinner on Friday night! Serve it up with a fresh garden salad or opt for a carbo load with some toasted ciabatta with fresh garlic butter? Mmmm hmmm. If this doesn't have you hungry for dinner... I'm not sure we can be friends. Bon Appetit friends x
As you know... We've got lemon's on our mind! On our search this week we stumbled upon these healthy, sweet little morsels and couldn't help but share them with you. Sweet yet tangy, and oh so healthy, these lemon bliss balls are a simple and nutritious treat designed to get you through a busy day. The best part? They’re made using only 7 ingredients and are vegan, gluten free, and refined sugar free . With all that in mind, what are you waiting for? Get the blender ready & it's time to whizz up these Lemon-y treats!
