Let’s Get Real (and Sustainable!)

 

Eco Tan has always been committed to creating magnificent organic products from Mother Nature without doing harm. We carefully source and work with our suppliers to bring you and the environment cleanest, sustainable ingredients possible.

 

Our products are completely biodegradable. There’s no microbeads or synthetic gunk that could be harming our environment and water ways. All of our ingredients are from ethical and fair-trade sources from Australia and throughout the world. Our Natural Rose Hip Sunscreen for example is also Oxybenzone free, meaning it’s 100% reef safe. Our products will NEVER leave any toxic chemicals on you, our animals or the planet.

Our goal is to create a cycle where everything can be endlessly recycled, reused or repurposed. Our packaging is already 100% recyclable, which is something we are very proud of. We do choose glass packaging where possible because it can be endlessly recycled. However, glass packaging requires extra packaging to protect it and it’s heavy (think fuel from transporting) – everything has a good and bad side. That’s why we research and work with leaders in the field of sustainability.


We are increasing and maximising PCR (Post Consumer Recycled) – there is a really big movement on this. It’s basically materials mainly plastics, consumers have recycled. We all play our part!

 

We are really excited that we are in conversion to making all our tubes with sugar cane pulp, using a solar farm that generates zero emissions. If packaging isn’t earth-friendly, We don’t want it! Recycle. Reuse. Repurpose. THAT’S our mission!

 

There’s no unrecyclable materials used in our shipping and there never will be. Everything is made from recycled paper and other natural elements so it can be recycled. It might look ugly to you, but the Earth thinks it’s beautiful.

 

We are not saying we are environmentally perfect. Our goal is to be carbon neutral. We have hired Environmental professionals to help us achieve this enormous feat. To use one of my favourite sayings “the effort determines the results” and we are determined.

 

Our commitment to you is to ensure our incredible, organic products are for all. I look behind me to my daughters and grandchildren’s future. Let’s not dump future generations with overwhelming environmental issues we thoughtlessly created.

My First Week At Eco Tan…

 

Walking into my first day at Eco Tan’s head office I wasn’t really sure of what to expect. Starting a new job is always slightly terrifying, but what made it even more terrifying was the incredible reputation Eco Tan already had. My older sister had raved about how amazing their Face Tan Water was. My friend gushed about their Cacao Tanning Mousse. My mother sung praises about their Glory Oil. But what would the company be like? What would the people be like? What would the culture be like? Would I fit in? Would I enjoy it?

My first day was an absolute whirlwind. There was so much to learn. So much see. So much to do. What immediately struck me was the friendly demeanour and incredible work ethic of everyone. As Founder and CEO, Sonya really has a way of inspiring and pushing people to achieve their full potential. Her fire was something that left me wanting to work harder and achieve more.

My relationship with the beauty industry had always been a tortured one. While I had a deep love of everything skincare and make up related, so many products were tested on animals or contained nasty chemicals. With such a lack of transparency within the industry, it was hard to tell who’s claims of ‘vegan’ and ‘cruelty free’ were actually true.

Slowly crawling towards thirty, my interest in skincare and anti-aging had started to grow considerably. I’d recently had a bit of a struggle with adult acne and I was starting to develop some fine lines around my eyes and forehead. As such, my skincare regime had gone through a very dramatic, chemical overhaul in the last few years.

After beginning to test a few of the Eco Tan products, I quickly began to understand how they’d developed such a cult following. The incredible and authentic certifications behind the Eco Tan and Eco by Sonya brands were a breath of fresh air. On top of that, the products worked. And they worked REALLY well! It wasn’t long before I realised my skincare regime was about to undergo another dramatic – albeit more organic – overhaul.

By the end of my first week, I felt like I had a better understanding of the company and what it stood for – honesty, integrity, passion and empathy. It permeated through everything they did. This was a place that cared not only about the products it was producing, but it’s employees and also its customers. This was a company I could get behind 100%. This was the start of something wonderful.

“WHOLE” by Sonya Driver

 

Every year I take a God inspired word into the new year.

This year it was ‘revelation’. Now, I’m still exploring the full meaning of the word as it unfolds in my life.

 

You know GRATITUDE is the pop word at present. 

As Eco Tan becomes a global organic beauty empire, Sonya Driver Eco Tan Founder takes us back to when she was a single mum, mixing ingredients in her house

You know GRATITUDE is the pop word at present.

I have asked a few people what does it mean to them. Strangely enough it has a completely different meaning to each individual. This is what I know about gratitude…

IT’S A MAGNET FOR MIRACLES.

It’s a supernatural tool that once found will propel you and others into a space beaming with new revelations.

1. In every circumstance look for the gratitude

2. That becomes a habit

3. Habit begins to retrain the brain

4. Brain creates happy hormones (dopamine)

5. Pass on the happiness to others

Practice it. Create a GRATITUDE jar. I have noticed it changes the colours I wear, my posture, my smile, the lines on my face.

I sense people with GRATITUDE. They walk into a room and instantly the vibe shifts. It flows from them, just like dark energy does. It’s light to carry and will energise the owner. Seek it. Speak it.

So as I dig deeper into the mixed world of gratitude I uncover something about myself that leaves me glum. I realise I project so much love and gratitude for others and outward things that I never stopped to be grateful for myself.

I’m so critical of me. Fat arms, no dedication and discipline for exercise, swear too much, drink too much, stress too much, impatient and the list goes on. I struggle to believe a compliment and with all I have overcome and achieved (bucket loads) I have never stopped to think sh&$ you are brave.

So in this moment with you here, I acknowledge and proudly say to myself. I’m grateful for you Sonya.

Blessings- Sonya
