Here at Emilie O’Connor Homestore, we design with nature. Our collection, including the blue wave gift set and bamboo lunch box was carefully created to connect you back to nature, whether it be via the design itself, as a reminder, or how you use it (made from eco-friendly bamboo, the collection is suitable for indoor and outdoor use - we love taking ours
connecting with the ocean. So, how can we do more to save and protect this environment for our children and future generations?
You may have heard that it’s plastic free July. A great movement started in 2011 in Western Australia which encourages millions to participate in going plastic free for the whole of July,to show how living without plastic waste can be done. We’re all for this, which is why all of our tableware is made from bamboo and reusable rather than single use.
- We have teamed up with eco-friendly companies like Wearth , who encourage
eco-friendly buys, support small designers and aim to bring planet friendly
options. With every tableware piece you buy, you support Surfers Against Sewage.
- Our friends at little Earth Baby are making beautiful products for littlies, from
Bamboo sleeping bags to organic cotton comforters.
- Switch from plastic cling film to reusable bees wax or vegan food wraps. You can now find the unforgettable Dugong Design on reusable vegan and bees wax wraps.
Handcrafted in South Australia using 100% GOTS certified organic cotton,
either local filtered beeswax or plant based wax ( VEGAN friendly), damar resin
(we do NOT use pine resin due to high allergy and jojoba oil. There is also no coconut oil in our wraps which means they will not go greasy!)These are the only wrap in the world which is also certified palm oil free!
- Keep learning and talking with others about environmental problems. At the
moment there is tonnes of research going on and many ways to show your
support. For example, Surfers Against Sewage are currently calling the British
government to end sewage pollution and guarantee safe seas all year around.
