We’re a small team with experience in environmental science, international development, sustainability, public relations, marketing, hospitality, travel, community development, eco fashion production, supply chains, brand strategies and brand consulting across multiple sectors.
We’re passionate about sustainability, and while we are far from perfect, we are striving to do our part to help protect the earth (our only home) for future generations. The Eco Directory was created to provide a platform to showcase sustainable brands, companies that care, and connect eco advocates around the world who are passionate about trying to live sustainably and inspiring that desire within individuals, communities and companies on a local and global scale.
If you’re passionate about sustainability or interested in learning about it we’d love to chat with you! Please join our Eco Travel Club on Clubhouse where we host weekly eco talks!

Our work has been Seen In:
Consumer demand drives change. If we can educate and encourage people to flex their purchasing power and choose green companies that care (not “greenwashed” companies but truly sustainable brands) then we can become a force for good.
Government sustainability policies are far behind and our massive waste production and global pollution is pushing the earth into a tipping point. So it’s up to us, as consumers, to demand change NOW with what we buy and what we choose not to buy.
With over 15 years of experience in the hospitality, travel, fashion, public relations, and sustainability sectors, we’re excited to offer a free, curated Eco Directory along with sustainability analysis and eco consulting services (Coming Soon!).
