State of Green

Some of the eco-conscious products available from new Melbourne-based online store State of Green.

State of Green is a fab new online store with a focus on eco-friendly and fair-trade products for your home and kids. Melbourne-based Jenny Tranter launched the site just in December, and has done a really brilliant job of sourcing a great variety of products from both Australia and overseas. Everything on the site has been designed with sustainability in mind - lots of bamboo homewares, organic fabrics, non-toxic cleaning and laundry products, and beautiful crafted wooden toys for kids.

I always feel Aus is so behind the US and Europe when it comes to online shopping... but little by little we're getting there, and State of Green really does lift the bar! I have been SO in love with the Shapemaker timber block game (top image) since it first popped up last year... I really need a little person to buy this stuff for! Also love the retro-style stainless steel coloured picnic cups from Eco Cocoon - just like my Nanna used to have in the caravan!

Do pop over and lend your support to this new Melbourne start-up!

  1. Lovely things, and sustainable too for extra brownie points! To buy more eco-designed goodies in Melbourne, I like visiting the Eco Innovators Showcase Pop up store inside an old newstand pillar on Swanston St and Luttle Collins St. Have you seen it?

  2. Thanks for the shopping tip. I'm looking for online stores to buy items for our toddler that are safe for him and the environment.
