When coming up with the idea to start Willow and Coconut, we realised we would have the opportunity to do more than just sell products and could use our platform to spread the message of sustainability and a more conscious lifestyle. For a long time, sustainable living had a bad rap. It meant you wore sandals with woolen socks and lived off the grid. At least that’s what many people believed. For years now, amovement of sustainable brands in fashion, food and interior has erupted that makes sustainability more approachable and sexy.

Taking care of our environment has never been this easy, with so many companies now working on their carbon footprint and creating sustainable goods. We have so many choices available to us.

Even small steps make a difference, here at Willow and Coconut we work hard to find brands working on taking care of the environment.We cannot say we are 100%sustainable but we come close to +/- 70% when it comes to sustainable and Eco products and we keep working on improving this number.

Buying Fair trade enables artisans in developing countries achieve better trading conditions. Not only does it create fair trading, but it also creates amore long- term and therefor sustainable development in their town and country.

When buying sustainable products, you create demand and incentive for manufacturers who wish to make a difference.

Many manufacturers have made bold strides in reducing their carbon footprint. This can be seen in all operations, such as collecting raw materials from the earth, the preparation of these materials, the manufacturing process, packaging, transportation etc?

So, no matter how small the effor t, every step we take collectively. Is a giant step towards creating a better planet!

With love,

Willow and Coconut
