Hi I’m Jen,
owner and creator of Eco Living Ideas. I’m a Mum to two beautiful girls and a Labrador and wife to a very supportive Husband. We are a military family, currently based in Hampshire.
I started my own eco journey at the beginning of 2018, just before our second Daughter was born. The first changes for our family were washable wipes, cloth nappies and reusable make up remover pads. As time went on I realised that more and more of my friends and family were coming to me for advice on how to make changes in their lives that were plastic free, zero waste or simply better for the environment. I started to spend a lot of time researching different products, homemade alternatives and community groups to get the answers, and my passion for the subject grew and grew.
Two years in to the “job”, I still love researching new products and finding solutions for the eco problems people come to me with. My favourite part of owning this business is that more and more people are coming to me for advise and I can share my knowledge and enthusasm with them!
Alongside the shop, I run a community group on Facebook (Eco Living Community), which is a safe place for people to share ideas, hints and tips and ask questions on all things eco. I set a monthly “challenge”, which is a great focus for the group and helps people tackle one area of their lives at a time. Changing old habits for new can be daunting but by having somewhere to go and ask questions and get some guidance, it makes it a whole load easier.
I hope you enjoy browsing the products available on the website. Please message me if there is something you think would be worthwhile stocking that I don’t have. Join in on the community group and look out on the Facebook page and Instagram for offers and competitions.
