Highlights of 2015 – The Year That Was!

Well 2015 has been kind to me personally and to our Eco Tan team.

I really hope our loyal customers have blossomed and thrived in 2015. Just a few quick highlights!

At the age of 49 my family and I moved in our first house that we built. To begin with we had a small pool ? In the extreme heat of QLD! Given this, we are going to truly enjoy our first summer in 10 years. This house was on my vision board for 8 years.

Personal Highlights in 2015

After being a single mum for the past 7 years, to now living with Gary (who has been in our lives for the last 5 years) the compromise has been interesting! Poor bastard doesn’t know what all the screaming is about. We scream when we are excited, sad, mad whatever. We love noise. That’s why we built him a man room with a dirty big telly.

A new addition to the Eco Community Mentoring Program!

Eco Community: What is a life without helping others?

It’s always incredibly satisfying to assist someone in need or give back. Eco Tan was founded on the principles of serving others in the community. Sonya always says

“We were born with two arms. One to help ourselves and one to help others.”

We LOVE to ‘give back’! We regularly sponsor animal refuses… And we even paid for surgery for homeless dogs! Sonya is also passionate about sponsoring a Romanian woman and children, a cause close to her heart. Furthermore, Sonya even donated her wedding gifts to a local domestic violence charity – read more about that here.

Since its conception, Eco Tan has always been out in the community, helping other small businesses grow in the same way. Sonya’s core beliefs has driver her to always be happy to offer FREE mentoring advice to other businesses. Thus, the ‘Eco Community Mentoring’ program was born… Through Sonya’s natural passion for giving back and sharing her blessings with others.

Watch out LONDON. We’re here!

Eco Tan / Eco By Sonya UK takes on London!

Aussie brand, Eco Tan & Eco By Sonya UK, had the opportunity to TAKE ON London at the Natural and Organics Products Expo!

Although, London was a rocky start. After 3 flights and almost 24 hours of flying, the last thing we were expecting was to be in a car accident. We were just driving out of Heathrow airport, we slammed on the brakes only to land in the back of a car and have a black cab land in the back of us. With both air bags deployed and one of them hitting Sonya in the face. Leaving her battered and bruised. We were shocked to say the least.

The worst part was having to wait another 3 hours on the side of the highway. Especially in the London temperatures we weren’t yet used to in order for the insurance company to come and pick us up.

After this chaos subsided it was 3am in the morning and that’s when the jet lag hit us hard! We found ourselves sitting in our pyjama’s at a 24 hour cafe two mornings in a row. We ordered scrambled eggs while the people next to us stumbled in from the local night club and ordered shots!

But all in all it was a wonderful experience where we finally got to meet fans of Eco Tan and Eco by Sonya.
