GET TO KNOW THE FOUNDER
WHY I STARTED ECOLUXEFASHION
Maya here. Founder of EcoLuxeFashion. I wanted to personally welcome you to EcoLuxeFashion as well as tell you a bit about why I started this company. I have been on a healthy, organic journey for quite a while now. My journey began after I had my first baby fifteen years ago. I became interested in the origin, quality, and sustainability of the foods we were feeding ourselves and our new child. Food was the initial foray into delving deeper into a holistic, healthy lifestyle. Like many moms, I expanded my attention beyond food to consciously choosing non-toxic, natural cleaning supplies.
My attention naturally turned to skin care products such as lotions, toothpaste, and shampoo. Over the years, I collected a vast amount of research about the additives that can affect and disrupt our immune systems. And these disruptors were in products my family used on a daily basis!
As my clean lifestyle unfolded, I was disheartened that I wasn’t “100% perfect.” I had an ideal in my mind of someone who never gave her children anything that wasn’t organic. This ideal person would never put anything other than organic products on her skin. I felt guilty when I compared myself to this mythical person, especially while purchasing an occasional favorite “dirty” product at the makeup counter.
Saying goodbye to fast fashion
When I began to learn about “fast fashion” and the environmental and ethical impact it was playing on our world and community, I came to two life-changing realizations. I realized that this area was where I wanted to make a significant impact and that there is no such thing as perfect, especially when it comes to sustainability and conscious consumerism.
I have always loved fashion and how it can change your outlook, your day, and even your entire life. It can be a powerful expression of oneself. However, I know there is no perfection when trying to be sustainable. Thus, the idea of a marketplace was born.
“What if there were a single website I could visit that would simultaneously educate and offer items already curated and ‘approved’ based on standards I believed in?”
That is what I wanted, and I know others do, as well. Whether you buy one item or everything from sustainable fashion brands, EcoLuxeFashion is here for you.
Never feel guilty, just feel good!
