Eco Peko is a forefront sustainable business and won awards including Australasian Kids Fashion Awards and Judges award for the Western Australia’s, Belmont Business Awards. Justine advised small businesses on sustainable manufacturing and also spoke at Australian events including Eco Expo and Fair @Square regarding GOTS certification for sustainable manufacturing and Control Union certification for farming methods. Eco Peko also featured at Melbourne’s federation square events.
In 2015 Eco Peko sought to improve on their brand, both with sustainability and fair trade practices. Embracing the philosophy of the Slow Fashion Movement, the natural choice was to bring production to Australia.
After researching Australian farming and industry we sought the highest possible quality, ethical manufacturing and organic products to work with.
Eco Peko is now 100% Australian Made.
We are proud to call our brand Slow Fashion. Our garments are made to last generations, tell a story and carry a lifetime of happy moments.
"My Brand is an extension of my beliefs and lifestyle. It’s of sustainability, lasting quality, soft timeless colours and minimalistic design.
Having 2 vivacious children, I embrace calm and seek tranquility and that reflects in Eco Peko.
In this age of fast food, fashion and technology, we are all losing a sense of our environment and ourselves. I look to my children’s future and try teaching them that less is much more. To reduce, reuse and recycle. To care for a belonging, a moment and to make it last, giving it more value as time goes by."
“Our personal consumer choices have ecological, social and spiritual consequences.
It is time to re-examine some of our deeply held notions that underlie our lifestyles “…….David Suzuki
