I have recently found a wonderful online shop echo life .
It is an amazing Natural Health and Beauty Product store that seeks out the best in natural & organic, skin and health care products. All of the products have been tried and tested, focus on children to adults and are selectively chosen by owner and occupational therapist Jude Hayman.
The site also provides some very insightful news, on an ongoing healthy and nurturing lifestyle. I am hooked.
Over much correspondence (these guys are a wealth of knowledge), they have kindly offered eco peko subscribers a $5 discount when ordering from the site. All you need to do, is put in the code eco peko at the checkout. I am just about to put in my order for the best natural sunscreen on the market Soléo Organics All Natural 30+ SPF Sunscreen
On another note, I have just picked up, the very new, ‘the pocket guide to fair trade in wa‘. This is the brainchild of the very talented Shona of The Ethical Entrepreneur and lists all the fair trade retailers in WA. This is a first of its kind in WA and is something I wholeheartedly support. If you would like a hardcopy (they are free ) of the guide, or would be interested in being listed in next years guide (its free ) then email Shona at firstname.lastname@example.org
All the best

After a well deserved break, eco peko is back on board. Since we last met a lot has happened..we were featured in a very cool cardboard book (published in the states) call (aptly) The Cardboard Book…..It has some amazing cardboard creations (including ours)…I’m talking offices, community gardens…its truly amazing (and if you buy it on booko.com its very cheap ).
Also, after much confusion over Chrissy involving customs and fedex, our t-shirts finally arrived. They are fantastic!!!! and only priced at $32.50 (includes babies eco treasure bag)
We have 4 prints on the ‘green/eco’ range, in both green and natural and 4 prints on the ‘organic/earth’ range in both chocolate and natural, we also have them available in long sleeves and in sizes 0-3mth, 3-6mth, 6-12mth, 1yr & 2yr.
Our happy daks ($30) suit all the colours and both boys and girls beautifully (and they are super soft)
Also our bamboodies are flying out the door. They are the best sun cover for baby, so if you haven’t got one yet, get one soon as they won’t last long.
Also, eco peko supported many charities for the flood victims in Queensland, including Project Shine : a charity helping mums in need and also the QLD disaster relief fund. Then we had our own close calls with the fires in Roleystone…. as we live in Roleystone. It got very close, but we were lucky…all thanks to the fireman, they were truly amazing and came from over 50 different fire stations in WA. Luckily no lives were taken in the fires.
On writing this post, I am also seeking ways to help those people who have been effected by the earth quake in Christchurch and will keep you updated with the charity we support.
All the best
