WE LOVE SEED & SPROUT.
It’s one of just many successful startups in Byron Bay, and founder Sophie Kovic’s ideas for creating a new type of lunch box which eliminated the need for single-use plastics hit the right chord at the right time. Their initial Kickstarter campaign raised nearly 700% of their goal amount and was fully funded in just 48 hours. Impressive.
Their mantra of ’starting somewhere’ is one we share at Byron Beach Abodes too. As they say: “You don’t have to be vegan to reduce your meat and dairy intake. You don’t have to be a zero-waster to start minimising your rubbish. You don’t have to strike to be an eco activist and you don’t have to live in a tiny house to lower your footprint. Just do your best.”
They continue to inspire us with the simple things like replacing disposable razors with a Leaf Razor with its three-blade pivoting head nestled into a beautiful, durable, all-metal razor. No waste. No plastic. Lots of tips like how to make your own sustainable, multi-purpose cleaning products, why it’s smart not to wash your fruit and veges before you store them and so much more.
