When you fan bam on some snazzy online ladies and love their blog, store and website it's a good moment when they agree to be interviewed to feature as playful people on this lil ol blog.
I first discovered Rose and Tanya of Ecolosophy back in early 2014, long before I knew I'd one day be living down the road from them both and I loved them straight away, I got to love them a little more when I spoke to them all about ecolosophy, their journey to where they are now, their challenges along the way and of course suss out how they play!
So what is ecolosophy? Well to make it easy for you, here is a link to this snazzy little store. In summary it's an online eco store with a heart...a big heart. Here is a snippet straight from their about page that kinda gives you the idea:
'We wanted to curate a collection of gorgeous and interesting wares that in one way or another, make our world a better place. .. There are so many clever and motivated folk crafting and creating wonderful things from the everyday to the unusual and we wanted to provide a place where you can indulge yourself in something that not only makes you feel good but is also doing some good, giving you an opportunity to make a better choice for yourself, your family, the planet and the generations to come.'
I met with Rose and Tanya and Tanya's place...AKA the Ecolosphy patch. We sat outside in the warm sunshine overlooking the Ecolosophy patch and the beautiful Lake Warden, which also is the main location that the business operates from. The 'warehouse' lives upstairs and the office is often out in the garden whilst Tanya's kids play in the sand pit or with the chooks and frogs on the property.
Make sure you read to the end... it's a long read but it's worth it!
