With Us and the Earth, Liz set out to help other mothers and nature lovers to make smarter choices, and also recognise that 'eco-friendly' doesn't need to be unattainable or daggy or 'alternative'. Her dream in bringing Us and the Earth to life was to shift up the term 'eco-friendly' and instead transform it into something beautiful and stylish, adding to one's life instead of being a daunting task that overwhelms the everyday Australian. Us and the Earth represents empowerment, conscious living, and connectedness to the planet and to the community around us. The brand's ethos is all about zero waste, plastic-free solutions to products we use every single day in our homes and overall lives.
Liz's desire to explore and learn, to contribute and connect with others in meaningful ways, stems from her zest for life attitude and travels abroad. From city to country, San Francisco to Tuscany, Liz has made the most of a lifetime of educating herself on eco-friendly living.
The Way we Pack and Ship
I am not at the stage in my business to use pretty ‘Us and The Earth’ branded boxes. Mine come from the stash I collect behind my local ‘Kidstuff’ or the supermarket. I have also been known to stop my neighbours on their way to the recycling bin with boxes. That’s just how I roll.
I recycle. I reuse.
The jewels are on the inside and packed with so much love!! And just in case you are wondering - any bubble wrap used is all recycled too. 😀
I also use Hero Packaging for small parcels.
Carbon Neutral Parcel Delivery
The process of delivering a parcel emits carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, which is shown to harm our environment.
We are using Australia Post and Sendle for our shipping delivery.
Silicone Returns Program
We are proud to offer recycling of our silicone products through TerraCycle.
They provide a great program and offer recycling options for items that can’t necessarily be put into your curb side recycling bin. Once your silicone product has reached the end of its lifetime ( which may never happen - they are pretty damn sturdy!!), simply complete the silicone returns form below or send us an email.
We’ll send you a pre-paid postage return slip to print. Send your product back to us and we will recycle it through TerraCycle. Amazing!
