The Billie Goat Soap Story

Billie Goat Soaps were created in 2005, by a mum whose son was suffering from eczema. Concerned about long-term steroid use on her little boy’s skin, she believed there had to be another way, and started researching the benefits of natural eczema treatments, including goats milk.

The mother was living on a farm, with her family and a pet goat they had adopted from the RSPCA, so she decided to make her own goats milk soaps. After a lot of experimenting and taking soap making lessons, the first batch of Billie Goat Soaps were born. Seeing the remarkable effects the soaps had on her own little boy, she was spurred on to share the message of natural remedies in the management of eczema and other serious skin conditions. The Billie Goat Soap range has expanded to include beautiful, premium products that cater to all skin types. Products are designed to help people suffering from eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis, such as our Intensive range and our hand-made. There are also products for all members of the family, especially for mum and baby.

Billie Goat Soap utilise the highest quality ingredients, including premium oils and extracts derived from nature as well as fresh Australian goats milk, and combine them in unique manufacturing methods, keeping the goodness in and the nasties out. Proudly 100% Australian owned and Australian made.

The ever ECO Story

The ever ECO story is still to come.

The Full Circle Story

A life cycle. Every product in our homes has one—from a scrub brush to a sponge. They’re designed and manufactured, serve out their purpose, get old and are thrown away. In Australia alone, if one scrub brush per household gets thrown out every year, that’s about 8 million brushes ending up in the garbage. Yes, you read that correctly—8 million!
 
And many of them are plastic (petroleum-based plastic) which means it takes about 1000 years before they start to break down. Yes, you also read that correctly—1000 years!
 
But what if there was a scrub brush made from sustainable, biodegradable materials? One that would eventually break down into those same biodegradable materials? And what if it was made in a factory with great working conditions and higher environmental standards? And what if it was ergonomic, worked great, and looked terrific in your home?
 
Well, that’s pretty much the thinking behind Full Circle.
You will notice on their packaging that Full Circle states, “Sustainably made in China.” Many might think these two things are mutually exclusive, but that is up to the manufacturer. Full Circle look at the environmental and social practices of our factories to ensure they are up to standards. And more importantly, they are on the ground making sure they keep up those standards. Want some examples? They thought you’d never ask….
 
– Full Circle sources raw materials close to where all of the processes and packaging is done to minimize transportation.
– Full Circle ensure scraps and waste materials are recycled.
– Full Circle use recycled and FSC certified paper for our marketing materials and packaging
– Full Circle audit our factories according to the following: fair labor practices, health & safety, compensation & work hours, environmental conditions including air and water, as well as waste disposal.
Full Circle are not perfect and do not claim to be, but they do closely monitor the environmental and social impact of our products. They look forward to expanding our initiatives and welcome comments or suggestions.
That’s just the kind of company Full Circle set out to be.
 
It’s a simple reality: our product choices are limited to what we can find on store shelves. And more often than not, products that are the most accessible aren’t always the most eco-friendly. Or good looking. That’s just the way it’s been for ages.
 
But the game has changed—with Full Circle’s line of stylish, functional products made from sustainable and renewable resources. Like scrub brushes with sleek, bamboo handles and sponges made from cellulose, a plant-based fibre. We’ve even made pot scrubbers that fully biodegrade! (As you can see, we’re really into this stuff.)
Important behind-the-scenes changes are happening here, too—such as improved working conditions, cleaner manufacturing methods and higher environmental standards. Even Full Circle’s suppliers have come around to our way of thinking. (They’re kind of persuasive that way.)
 
Full Circle believes in constantly striving to do things better. While there may be a finite number of resources in the world, there’s an infinite number of ways to use them more wisely.
And figuring out how to do that is what gets us them every morning.
 

Come Clean, Come Full Circle.

The GAIA Story

Launched in 2002, GAIA Natural Baby was created by mum Michelle Vogrinec after her baby developed eczema when he was just 8 weeks old. Michelle couldn’t find skin care products suitable for little Josh’s skin which led her to create a range of gentle non-irritating products to care for his skin.

The GO BAMBOO Story

When GO BAMBOO’s founders Mick Williams and Anna Proctor heard about the The North Pacific Gyre they were dismayed to hear of this sea of plastic twice the size of the state of Texas! They were so shocked and disgusted that they decided to try and live their lives with as little plastic as possible.

They started to pay more attention to what they were buying in their weekly shop, making better choices about packaging and choosing non-plastic alternatives when available. This was going fine until they needed to replace the kids’ toothbrushes. They were struck by the amount of plastic that goes into a toothbrush, plus the unnecessary packaging, and that there was no non-plastic alternative. They buy three or four of these a year and questioned – how many is that over a lifetime? Not being able to purchase eco friendly toothbrushes in New Zealand, Mick and Anna designed their own using bamboo. They were pretty popular and wondered, why couldn’t bamboo be used instead of plastic in more disposable items?

GO BAMBOO expanded their range to include other household items like pegs, veggie brushes and cotton buds, and are constantly on the lookout for opportunities to provide simple and sustainable alternatives to the little things we all use every day.

GO BAMBOO won the waste minimisation section of the 2012 Green Ribbon Awards, which honour outstanding contributions to protecting New Zealand’s environment.

GO BAMBOO is serious about keeping plastic off our coastlines and beaches and out of our oceans.

The Hanky Folk  Story

Hanky Folk Dan is a surfer, traveller, foodie, father and hanky creator. He grew up with hankies. His old man always used them and the tradition naturally rubbed off on Dan. It wasn’t until he met his wife, that he realised not everyone used hankies. This was a shock to him.
Dan decided the humble handkerchief needed a voice, a revamp and a future.
Hanky Folk make hankies in the most sustainable way they can, knowing full well that the most sustainable thing to do would be not to make them at all. However we think the world needs cool hankies and hope they bring you nothing but happiness, a clean nose and years of great service.

The Jack N’ Jill  Story

Jack N’ Jill is a natural toothpaste for babies, toddlers & children that is safe to swallow. It was first made in Melbourne, Australia in 1949 and it has been a family business for more than 20 years. It proudly continues to be made in Australia!

A few years ago Justin and Rachel, the creators of Jack N’ Jill, had their first child and immediately joined many parents, the world over, who are concerned about current environmental issues and the direct effects they have on children. They started to question everything he came into contact with, not wanting to expose him to unnecessary additives and chemicals. They felt frustrated about the lack of choice in early childhood oral hygiene. With a background in pharmacy, they set out to formulate the absolute safest toothpaste for their kids and yours. In the process, they also made it the most fun & yum!

Jack N’ Jill Toothpaste is 100% safe for young children – especially because they have a tendency to swallow it, rather than spit it out! All Jack N’ Jill branding is designed to be appealing to children and is cute enough that parents won’t mind it sitting on their bathroom vanity. Alongside the toothpaste we have designed and manufactured the first children’s toothbrushes with handles that are made of NON GMO cornstarch, and are therefore biodegradable and recyclable. Did we mention ‘cute’?

Jack N’ Jill are extremely proud of our formulation, having successfully developed a toothpaste containing ingredients with mild and known safety profiles.

Jack N’ Jill believe that businesses have an obligation to the environment, that’s why we have formulated an all natural, hypoallergenic toothpaste with organic ingredients, and designed our packaging to be minimal, recyclable and BPA Free.

The Natural  Evolution Story

As a second generation farmer Robert Watkins has a strong farming philosophy and believes that ultimate nutrition begins with healthy soil and plants.

For many years Rob and his family were among the largest banana growers in Australia, specializing in a variety known as Lady Fingers. This variety requires 25-30% more labour to grow than ordinary Cavendish bananas and also has a reduction of 50% less plants per acre due to their height.

Week after week Rob would find himself disposing tonnes of beautiful Lady Fingers that he had poured so much energy and resources into growing all because they were too big, too straight or too bendy for the supermarket giants. The fruit was perfectly good for eating and packed full of nutrients. Like every week the local Agile wallabies would flock to the area eating as many green Lady Fingers their tummies could handle.

Cattle would break fences to get to *wasted green bananas. *wasted – unsuitable for specific supermarket guidelines approx 500 tonne in Australia every week.

Rather than disposing of tonnes of beautiful Lady Fingers that had been so carefully grown with so much energy and resources. The fruit was perfectly good for eating and packed full of nutrients yet “unwanted” by the supermarket giants because they were too straight, too bendy, too big or too small.

Finally though, Rob had found an outlet, an opportunity in the market, through the production of Banana Ointment and Green Banana Starch!

Natural Evolution’s Banana Ointment is quite possibly the largest natural medicine breakthrough we will see in the world. The ointment is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory. The ointment was made out of need. Rob and Krista own 3 blue heelers that constantly suffered “hot spots” a bacterial infection related to staph that is present in soils and surges in the tropical months with rain and sultry days. Fed up with antibiotics and cortisone creams two or three times per day with three dogs taking a number of weeks to heal Rob and Krista decided to turn to natural remedies in an attempt to heal their beloved dogs faster, more cost effectively and more nurturing. It was in the thermomix that their first batch of ointment was made – the result was astounding. After first trialing it on themselves Rob and Krista waited for the dreaded infection to return on their dogs. In one application the “hot spot” infection stopped spreading, cleared and ceased to weep, new healthy skin could be seen reforming with new hair beginning to grow. The infection healed more than 10 times faster. From here the ointment was used on the farm for first aide burns, cuts, skin rashes etc. Word of mouth spread and people as far as North America began seeking the ointment to try on complicated skin issues. The banana ointment was born and has been used on arthritic pains, spurs, wart/sunspot removal, intensive healing, nappy rash, burns, blisters, minor cuts and abrasions, fungal and bacterial skin infections.

For his enthusiasm and vision Robert has received numerous accolades for his inventions and food processing techniques. None more so than his ability to design a thriving business that began by transforming waste bananas into a highly nutritious food source and now revolutionizing the banana industry where bananas are being grown for the sole purpose of flour production.

The ONYA Story

The team at ONYA, go to work everyday because they want to make a difference.

The feel as though every minute of every day they are bombarded with another ingenious way humans are damaging our environment.

At times the ONYA team they feel life can be a bit doom and gloom and it can be hard to see just what to do about it, but we know there are many people out there like you and like us who want to create a good news story for our environment.

The seed of just what we could do to help the planet began back in 2004. It was a fragrant summer evening that our founding father Jon Brousson, lying in his hammock amongst the trees, with the stars blazing above,was asking himself how he could create meaningful change in his community by reducing the prevalence of single use plastic.

Every day Jon found himself confronted by out of control plastic waste with disposable shopping bags being a major contributor. With a little ingenuity and few sewing skills, Jon created ONYA’s first reusable shopping bag.

He proudly used his shopping bag at every opportunity – at the supermarket, farmers market or just shopping for anything that would require a bag, and pretty soon people were asking him to create one for them too.

ONYA has since grown into a company that prides itself on creating high quality, useful, reusable products for your everyday life that can easily be kept ‘On You’.

From reusable shopping bags, produce bags, backpacks & coffee cups, to one of the highest quality stainless steel drink bottle ranges on the Australian market.

Our products are responsibly made in China. Wherever possible our products are not only 100% recyclable, but they are also made out of recycled material such as rPET, a fabric produced from recycled plastic water bottles.

We are quite literally taking plastic waste from landfill and turning it into something reusable for many years to come.

Our goal at ONYA is to offer our customers a well thought out quality alternative to single use plastic and it is by companies like us, partnering with people like you that can actually make the change we want to see happen in our world.

Why wait for tomorrow when we can take action today?

The TOM Organic Story

TOM Organic is an Australian, female-owned business, started in 2009 by Founder Aimee Marks. The range of certified organic tampons and pads have been developed by women, for women and are available Australia-wide.

When TOM Organic learned about the impact conventional tampons and pads have on our environment and how they are not always made with pure cotton, they felt a responsibility to make an alternative – women use over 15,000 tampons in a lifetime and they come into contact with one of the most absorbent parts of our body! That’s why TOM Organice products are designed with some important questions in mind: how do the materials used to make them affect us? And what impact do they have on the environment, both whilst they’re being made and after they’ve been used? TOM Organic believe in building a community of conscious consumers, empowering women to lead healthy, fulfilled lives.

TOM Organic also believe that business can be a force for good, which is why they’re one of the founding B Corporations in Australia.

So why do they call themselves “TOM”? When first launched, they were purely a feminine hygiene brand and TOM stood for “Time Of Month”. But they are so much more than that now! TOM Organice launched a maternity range in 2014 and more products are in the pipeline (they also just launched a baby range, Tooshies by TOM which they are very excited about!).

Who Gives A Crap®

First of all, Who Gives A Crap is funny. Lots of room for toilet jokes, which everyone at Who Gives A Crap loves.

But really, Who Gives A Crap love toilet paper because for them, it’s thier way of making a difference. Who Gives A Crap started when Simon, Jehan and Danny learned that 2.3 billion people across the world didn’t have access to a toilet. That’s roughly 40% of the global population and means that diarrhoea related diseases fill over half of sub-Saharan African hospital beds and kill 900 children under 5 every day.

The boys thought that was pretty crap. So in July 2012, Who Gives A Crap was launched using a crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo. Simon sat on a toilet in the draughty warehouse and refused to move until they had raised enough pre-orders to start production. 50 hours and one cold bottom later, they’d raised over $50,000.

Who Gives A Crap delivered their first product in March 2013 and have been thrilled to keep growing ever since. Not just because Who Gives A Crap toilet paper is gracing bathrooms across the country but also because they donate 50% of profits to help build toilets and improve sanitation in the developing world.

Though Who Gives A Crap are still growing, and now make more than just toilet paper, they always want to stay true to their roots: toilet humor and making the world a better place.
