    Oh hey! It’s been a minute. We closed our store, our whole team moved to the warehouse, and we’re fully online now. What a tornado! We’re back in full force, serving up the juice, talking all things therapy and mental health, and giving a little behind the scenes to our craziest move yet.

    Out of office: Creating a healthy work culture as entrepreneurs

    Out of office: Creating a healthy work culture as entrepreneurs

    If there’s one thing we’re all about, it’s mental health and self care. It’s what fuels our work and our activism, and in this episode we explore how our current work culture is influenced by past jobs and some of the experiences we don’t want to repeat. As always, it gets a little juicy. We talk about finding the right team, carving out time for fun and refreshing work breaks, taking mental health days when your world is falling apart, and the freedom we’ve found in running our own business.
    We also share about one of our favorite zero waste stores, Refill Revolution, who is moving online, just like us. We are so honored to be a part of a thriving and diverse zero waste community and we can’t wait to see where it takes us next.

    Pivot! Pivot! The end of an era, but not the end of our story

    Pivot! Pivot! The end of an era, but not the end of our story

    Episode 2 is the second half of our story that’s still being written. This is our ~COVID~ story - how we managed to not only survive but somehow thrive as a small business in the midst of a pandemic, and the rollercoaster of a year it has been for us, personally and professionally. We share how and why we shifted from being a zero waste shop to a zero waste self care brand, and we finally fill you in on the much anticipated “big news” you might’ve heard about. It’s bittersweet but we couldn’t be more excited to see where this next chapter takes us. 
    And of course, we spill some juice! This week, an alarming zero waste swap that sent some of you to the emergency room.

    Publicly Chaotic: Our origin story and reliving the early days of our store

    Meet Genevieve, Marimar and Summer, the co-founders of Eco Collective, in the first full episode of our podcast! In this episode, we air some juice from the sustainability world and give you some context of who we are and how we got started, setting the scene for some big news in episode 2. We share our whole story from starting at a farmer’s market in 2017 and getting our first retail space, to what we were doing when COVID hit in March 2020. We also talk about how we got into the zero waste lifestyle, how we all met, our chaotic chapters of store moves and remodels, and the amazing community we found along the way.

Instantly my FAVORITE podcast!

I was instantly attached to this podcast! These Eco-chicks are so much fun and exciting! I love hearing their banter and of course information about Eco Collective and zero waste living! They remind me of the defunct “More Hip Than Hippie” podcast which I loved!

LISTEN! LISTEN! LISTEN!
