So when I started Sunshine and Smiles it was to make sure I didn’t give up on my dream of planning and throwing parties as an actual job, but I didn’t really do anything with it. Then, during the first lockdown of 2020, I had the idea of a party in a box and discovered the amazing Party Kit Network and so the party kit hire side of things came in to being. It was also at this time that I really started looking in to all things environment, sustainability and climate crisis, in fact I’ve become pretty passionate about it and want to share all the amazing things I’ve come across with everyone!
I’ve come across loads of fab small business which offer great eco-swaps, fantastic inspirational people with loads of great info and eco-tips and some amazing books.
To that end I’m working on Sunshine and Smiles – Easy Eco Steps. Subscription or starter boxes (still trying to figure that bit out) aimed at parents who already have a million and one things on the go but are concerned about the environment and the world we’re leaving for our children and grandchildren, but don’t know where to start.
I’ll be including products from some of the small businesses I’ve discovered on my never ending eco journey (not sure I like that word!) and will be scouring all corners of Bishop’s Stortford and the internet for lots more fab businesses.
Ideas for boxes so far are kitchen, bathroom, cleaning, personal care, parties, stationary, arts and crafts, gifts and travel but would love to know what boxes you’d be interested in receiving.
dream plan is still a party barn with an eco shop next door but in the meantime I thought this could be a good place to start. And of course I can always look at stocking some products and turning part of my already jammed packed party store (aka the garage) in to a little eco shop 🙂
Would love to know what you think, thanks lovelies x
