Let me tell you a little about myself. My name is Ellie and I currently live in Brisbane QLD, but I grew up in a small country town in New South Wales.
I was lucky to have been brought up on a farming property being surrounded by animals and beautiful landscapes, that helped create my passion for animal welfare and my love for the environment. I then went on to study at the University of Canberra undertaking a Bachelor degree in Environmental Science.
I have worked for the public and private sectors within the environmental industry. Working as an Environmental Scientist remediating polluted land sites from human factors. So instead of getting angry and just continuing to do a job where I would remediate our mistakes, I wanted to make a difference, to make a change, to contribute towards creating a more sustainable future, so, therefore Eco Box Australia was created!
So, with the help from my partner Jack, we would like to welcome you to Eco Box Australia, an Australian owned business with one mission in mind: to make eco-living easier for you.
Creating awareness that by living an eco-friendlier life you will see benefits in your life and home. You will be one of the many that is on the path to creating a more sustainable future for our environment and generations to come.
Being a small Australian business, we try our best to support other small Australian businesses breaking out into the market that is in line with our mission.
We are here to help you on your journey to living a life that is of minimal waste and to reduce plastic consumption with products that are environmentally sustainable alternatives.
Throughout this journey of creating Eco Box Australia we want to be transparent, and continue to follow our mission statement and improve anyway we can to make this possible.
We have made sure that all our boxes are completely recyclable, the ink used on the boxes are non-toxic, we use biodegradable packing tape, biodegradable mailing satchels that you can put into your compost bin to decompose, or alternatively your landfill bin as it will decompose, and our packing materials used are all completely recyclable.
We know it can feel overwhelming initially, but old habits will change, with one step at a time, we will support you and guide you through this journey. We are excited to have you, and thank you for supporting a small Australian owned business and our dream of creating a more sustainable future for the generations to come.
