The Joy Givers Soiree Lunch

Sonya Driver, founder of organic Eco Tan, hosted the Joy Giver's Soiree Lunch - a Fundraiser Event, to raise money & help a poverty stricken family.

Fundraiser Event Gold Coast – The Joy Givers Soiree Lunch

It’s rare to get the opportunity to REALLY change the lives of this those in desperate need.

My friend and fellow joy giver, Owen, of many years has a heart for the homeless and broken, and he spends his time travelling the world helping those in need. Recently Owen visited Romania and one family in particular rocked him to his core… We decided, it was time to rally our folks, we needed to organise a fundraiser event.

Lonela’s Story:

Lonela is a single mother of five daughters. She can’t read or write. To earn money to feed her family, she works for the fishermen and fisheries digging through dirt for worms for 13 hours per day! Sadly Lonela hasn’t seen her eldest daughter smile in three years.

Have a mate’s back by checking their back!

Eco Tan is providing you with summer sun safety tips to look after your skin! Our favourite? Have a mate's back by checking their back!

Who has your back?

If the rising temperatures and humidity is enough indication, I think it’s safe to say Summer is on the way. For all of us as Eco Tan HQ, this means days by the beach, cold drinks and lots of time in the pool. While we’re all excited to be out in the warm weather, it can be sobering to remember that Australia has the highest rate of melanoma in the world. It’s incredibly pertinent that we follow a summer sun safety routine, review the warning signs of melanoma, how to check for them, and to check a mates back!

Checking your skin regularly for any new spots or changes in existing spots is crucial. Catching a melanoma early can be the difference between clear health or skin cancer.

Don’t bake it when you can fake it with Certified Organic Eco Tan

Don't bake it when you can fake it, this Summer, with Eco Tan's Certified Organic tanning products. All natural, vegan, natural beauty, best fake tan!

What you need to know about our organic tanning products…

Oh Summer. The season of beach-filled days, laying by the pool and… sunburns. It’s a sad fact but spending day after day in a bikini under the sun can and will leave your skin redder than a tomato. Seriously not a good look. While it doesn’t look or feel too fab to get sunburnt, it also has serious implications for your skin. Australia has one of the highest rates of melanoma in the world, and Eco Tan was founded due to our founder’s sister being diagnosed with one. Your skin is your largest organ so it is of the utmost importance you take care of it and protect it from the great fireball!

There’s nothing fake about our tan!

Fake it, don't bake it with the Eco Tan's best natural self tan Australia. We pride ourselves on our organic ingredients & beautiful natural bronze tans

Fake it, Don’t bake it… with Eco Tan’s organic spray tan solution!

Our organic spray tan solution is beautifully made with only organic and natural ingredients. Definitely no toxic chemicals, artificial colourants or synthetic orange or green dyes… Want to know why? We’ll tell you why!

We’ve all seen it before – some poor girl leaving the salon doing her best to hide the fact she looks like an oompa loompa… Unfortunately, a lot of spray tan solutions use orange as a dye to give that ‘tanned’ look, but we have all seen it go wrong so many times before. Worse still, to counteract the orange dye, most solutions also contain a green dye as well! What’s worse than waking up looking like Shrek?

Rounds for Wildlife

Gary, Eco Tan Founder, Sonya Driver's Husband, is doing 51 rounds of Muay Thai to raise money to create awareness for Wildlife Tourism in Thailand.

Sonya’s husband Gary, literally fights for a worthy cause

The spotlight is now shining brightly on wildlife tourism in Thailand and Sonya’s husband Gary is carrying the torch. Even though Sonya’s and Gary’s wedding is only days away, Gary is training hard to literally fight for this cause. Even at one of the busiest times in their lives, these two compassionate people never seem to stop giving… (read here about how Sonya and Gary donated all their wedding gifts to charity!) They are always looking for a worthy cause to help people, to help communities, to help environment or to help animals.

The rise of teens against animal cruelty

Younger generations & teenagers are becoming increasingly passionate about supporting Cruelty Free Organic Beauty Brands in the cosmetics industry.

Teens Support Cruelty Free Organic Beauty Brands

With the advent of social media, younger generations are taking it upon themselves to gather information about issues they are passionate about. Subsequently, a huge movement against animal cruelty has gained momentum. And teenagers are stepping up to support companies in the beauty industry and Cruelty Free organic beauty brands. Transparency has never been valued so highly in the cosmetics industry. Now a quick Google search can reveal who does and does not test on animals in a matter of seconds.

Sonya Supports Friends With Dignity

Friends With Dignity Charity is a cause close to Sonya’s heart

An exciting time in Sonya’s life is approaching – her wedding! In September, Sonya will marry her partner of six years surrounded by her friends and family.

During this period of planning, Sonya realised she wanted to give back, to the Friends With Dignity charity. Sonya choose a charity that supported those who were not so fortunate to be surrounded by boundless love. 

Friends With Dignity is a charity that supports all victims of domestic violence. Their company mantra says that domestic violence does not discriminate, so neither do they; they seek to help every victim regardless of gender, ethnicity or sexuality. It is compromised entirely of volunteers who work with a network of refuge’s to support victims who have been displaced due to domestic violence. These men, women and children have to leave their homes due to fear. Often having nothing but the clothes on their back.

Our latest charitable cause is sponsoring Samang Chen, a woman from Cambodia, through Good Return. Good Return is a not-for-profit organisation that allows people and businesses to provide microloans to those in poverty around the globe.
