Eco & Basics
Eco & Basics is based by the ocean on the beautiful Bellarine Peninsula in Victoria. It began in 2018 with founder Bianca’s journey towards a low waste lifestyle. While on holiday in Bali – a place where she had visited many times – she noticed that the beaches were becoming filled with more and more single use plastic items than ever before. She knew she had to do something back home in Australia to guide people to start living a more sustainable lifestyle, before our beaches started looking the same way. Her vision for Eco & Basics is to inspire other people to live a low waste lifestyle by curating a range of stylish and affordable eco friendly products to replace single use products.

They offer a thoughtfully curated range of products to facilitate a sustainable, zero waste lifestyle.

In her home and business she is committed to reducing the use of single-use plastics and finding sustainable alternatives to plastics. All of their products are 100% compostable or recyclable at the end of their useful lives. Eco Patch is committed to being plastic free as much as possible.

Our products are made with all natural ingredients for everyday use on the body and around the home.
In 2017, Mirablue founder Michelle Butler stood gazing over the beautiful waters of Phuket, feeling grateful and in awe of the seemingly pristine ocean before her. Then, that illusion was shattered as a trawler came into view and dumped its contents directly into the ocean. Although sad to see, this incident sparked Michelle to action, creating a company to inspire, educate and encourage people to think more about their single use plastic consumption and make simple changes at home which will contribute to a lasting positive global impact. Mirablue aims to make plastic free living simple and affordable.

They use minimal packaging and recyclable labels and containers to minimise the plastic in your bathroom.
