About Eco By Heart

 

I am half Danish, half Inuit from Greenland living in Sweden with my husband two, boys, and our dog, Rufus, a miniature American Shepherd.

Nature has always played a big part in my life. I love hiking, camping, kayaking and try to spend as much time outdoors as posible. In Greenland I've witnessed our impact on nature at first hand. I was heartbroken when I went sailing for days without seeing any human beings, houses or anything else that indicated that man had been at that exact spot - except from plastic bags, toothbrushes and other trash that had washed up ashore. 

Eco By Heart was born from a desire to reduce the amount of daily waste and plastic sent to the landfill or somehow out into nature.

In my journey towards a more sustainable lifestyle, I learned that it takes a lot of effort and research to find out if a particular brand or product is sustainable. Sustainable materials are not the same as sustainable products; the material is only a small part of the product. To find out if a product is sustainable we need to look at the origin, how it is handled, the manufacturing process, the transportation and the working conditions of those who manufacture the product.

To be honest, only very few products can be labelled sustainable. In most cases, environmentally friendly would be a more correct term.

Eco By Heart is a small one-woman company on a mission. My mission is to remove single-use, throwaway and landfill waste from our everyday life. I seek to find products that we use daily without compromising on quality and ethics or the expanse of the environment. I do my best to find reusable, recyclable and plastic-free alternatives to everyday products to reduce waste and pollution. When you start implementing sustainable products to your lifestyle, you may worry that it is to expensive. But you will soon learn that when you only have to buy things once, you will save lot's of money in the long run.

The products in my store range from kitchen supplies, personal care and on-the-go products. So basically things we use daily and often throw out after one single use, but with my sustainable products you can use them again and again. As many others I also have a passion for interior design and decors. So I try to fill my home with beautiful things that have the least impact on nature as possible.

Living a more sustainable life is not always easy or perfect but little changes can have a huge impact. So start implementing small changes today to make a big difference tomorrow.

I hope you will find what you need in my store, and if not, write me an email and I will see if it is something that I can find. And if you have any questions or you aren't satisfied with your product, please contact me and I will do all I can to help you.

Sincerely
Naya
