Taiao Tribe is a local, family run business that offers eco-friendly home starter packs and most recently their monthly eco box subscription. They are a family run business who are passionate about reducing plastic pollution after seeing the damage to marine life with their own eyes.
I have been lucky enough to receive their very first eco box which has been a delight and contains a mix of practical and indulgent products.
Our modern world is naturally heading towards a more sustainable and eco-conscious future. It is great to see New Zealanders like Taiao Tribe founders Keryn and Austin stepping up and leading the way.
Based in beautiful Matauri Bay, Northland they organise and run beach and waterway cleanups in the local area and donate 5% of their profits to other organisations with the same intention.
For the kitchen I got a coconut husk dishwashing scourer, which can replace any steel wool or sponge scourers. This is something I never would have thought to get, mainly because I didn’t know it existed!
Plastic takeaway cutlery is another plastic product adding to pollution issues. It was great to get a bamboo cutlery set by Ever Eco, designed to be the eco-friendly replacement when out and about. It comes in a handy washable pouch to keep everything together and compact enough to be a constant fixture in my handbag, ready to pull out when I need it. Score!
As a little indulgent treat they included a tin of Loving Earth organic creamy drinking chocolate, delicious! Vegan and free from gluten, soy and dairy this is a winner plus the main cylinder of the “tin” is made with recycled cardboard.
Last but not least I got a divinely smelling soy wax candle by Earth Candles. They pour their candles into the bottom of recycled glass beer bottles, how cool is that? Once again free from any chemical nasties such as paraffin, petroleum, phthalates and dyes.
I can’t wait for next month’s Eco Box!
