ECOnation Collective TM is a curated group of like-minded brands represented with ethos.
From the beautiful Surf Coast in Victoria Briody Scholes the founder of ECOnation Collective TM began her journey in sales and marketing with Earth Bottles in 2014. After gaining success for the brand at the most prestigious trade fair in Australia “Life Instyle” she saw there was a gap in the market and decide she wanted to do the same for other eco brands. Briody conceptualised ECOnation Collective in early 2017 and by mid-2017 she was speaking with a number of eco brands about representation. Life Instyle February 2018 will be the official launch of ECOnation Collective and with 10 amazing eco brands and hundreds of eco products, it is sure to create a lot of interest from retailers.
Briody is passionate about eco products, using them for her family on a daily basis.
“With 4 young children, you want to teach them how to look after this beautiful planet we live on. I try to be eco-conscious and teach my children to respect the gift of mother nature. I do this by showing them how to make good choices for the environment and leading by example.”
ECOnation Collective TM represents the beautiful eco brands Bask Aromatherapy, Church Farm General Store, Ichimu, Mineral X Factor, Polli, Eco Bling, Sienna Byron Bay, Earth Bottles, Yogi Peace Club and Good and Clean.
ECOnation Collective TM will bring retailers new and exciting products ranging from eco skincare, handmade soaps and ceramics, upcycled and recycled jewellery, eco nail polish, stunning essential oils, reusable water bottles and drinking vessels, vegan mineral makeup and yoga essentials. When you visit the ECOnation Collective TM stand you will meet and greet not only the founder Briody Scholes but many of the founders of the brands themselves.
ECOnation Collective TM will bring you the latest high end, top quality eco products to hit the markets. The handpicked brands are also very passionate about the environment, working with ethos and how their product helps others on the eco journey.
Each eco brand has met a number of criteria to become a part of ECOnation Collective TM, so it is assured that each brand creates products that are made either by hand or in Australia or if not are manufactured overseas responsibly.
The best piece of business advice I was given was to “learn from your mistakes and be humble”, every one of us is still learning and if we are not learning we are not growing and becoming better at what we do. I am in a state of constant growth.
My motto in life and favourite quote is to “always be kind”, I try and live my day to day life and in my business with this in mind. A big part of what I do involves relationships and connection with others and it is my job to make these connections and nurture my relationships.
