Byron based label SLINK11 has burst onto the scene and our radar, thanks to founder and Social Media Influencer, Pia Muehlenbeck. Pia has an instagram following of 1.3 million, an enviable lifestyle and killer style.. but she's also passionate about the preservation of our planet.
Purchase any of the performance active women's wear SLINKII has to offer and you will be supporting their partnership with One Tree Planted, a wicked organisation with the goal to reforest our entire planet.
Much like us here at Just be apparel, SLINKII aims to inspire global health and wellness by promoting an active lifestyle and a balanced mind.
Free Spirit is our favourite brand for beach chic and coastal chill vibes. Their surf & yoga products are inspired by the ocean and life's simple pleasures.
What's even more awesome is all Free Spirit t-shirts and cards are printed in Sydney, Australia, so when you purchase their products you're supporting an entire local production chain which has been rated among the highest in the industry. Their packaging, including swing tags and carry bags are made from recycled card and paper too.
On the same wave length as us here at Just be apparel, they want to inspire a healthy mind set, and are working in support of OneWave is all it takes, an organisation raising awareness for mental health. Buy a Free Spirit t-shirt and $2 of your purchase will go directly to OneWave.
Imagine if you were to see a collective of Australia's most innovative and creative business owner's reveal their story, their product and their keys to success. That's what The Australian Collective have done.
It's a website, filled with blogs and podcasts, that connects every day Australians and people around the globe seeking to read about Aussie grown entrepreneurs. Their mission is simple, yet it hasn't been done before, to lend a helping hand to new Australian start-ups and brands with free internet advertising, some friendly advice and a chance to tell their story to the Australian Collective community.
A simple follow of their instagram account (which boast's an 11.5k following) will remind you of how important it is to buy ethical and local. We highly recommend reading an article...perhaps the feature blog they did on us a little while back.
Australian Collective's stories of Aussie talent, how these brands started, their tricks of the trade and why they felt a drive and started their business, will get you motivated.
