Launching in January 2019, SOUL Eco is the brainchild of Jesse Loudoun, a child protection worker who started the side project in an effort to encourage people to make more sustainable choices when shopping.
At its inception, Jesse had just $100 to invest in the business. Since then, however, SOUL Eco has grown tremendously with growing fans of their gorgeous products.
Their products, which aim to reduce plastic, are now stocked in an array of businesses across South Australia and have even expanded to Victoria.
“It’s such a passion of mine and I feel so so happy when I see people in the community using SOUL Eco products,” says Jesse.
Their chic eco-friendly wine coolers are a business staple.
These stainless steel keep cups are the perfect investment for those who fancy an extra-cold alcoholic bevvy or a piping hot coffee on the go.
Specialising in sustainably-made products, these insulated keep cups which are currently retail for $24.95 aren’t the only stylish goods that shoppers can snap up at this local Adelaide business.
At what is essentially a one-stop-shop for the conscious shopper, you can find all kinds of products including reusable straws, bamboo toothbrushes, beeswax sandwich wraps, reusable makeup pads as well as a range of incredibly Insta-worthy crystal reusable water bottles.
Despite the apparent success of their products, like many other local SA businesses, SOUL Eco didn’t escape the ongoing COVID-19 crisis completely unscathed.
Not only did social distancing restrictions force many of SOUL Eco’s stockists to close their doors, but Jesse has found that spending has taken a backseat in general during the COVID-19 crisis.
“There was a period of time when sales practically stopped, people just weren’t spending money.”
This has forced the small business to get creative and fast track their new website so that they can continue to cater to those that are social distancing.
With SOUL Eco’s new website, the environmentally-conscious can get their hands on the complete range of consciously-made goods. With the addition of Afterpay, shoppers can budget in their orders too.
You will receive free shipping for orders over $50, and even better, you have the option to waive the shipping fee by opting for local pick up at one of their stockists.
