With more and more businesses taking up the challenge of being sustainable and ethical, with the ultimate goal of their products and services contributing towards the improvement and nurturing of our environment, there are some that you'll want to keep your eyes on, at the upcoming market from May 3 - 5, 2019 at the Adelaide Showgrounds. With Mothers Day around the corner as well, these businesses will not only be kind to your surroundings, but also allow your mummas to indulge in something, knowing that they are environment-friendly, whilst being stylish and trendy as heck!
Here is a list of businesses and individuals who will be participating at this year's Bowerbird Market that promote sustainability - please note that this list is not exhaustive:
CHAMP Hailing from Victoria, CHAMP specializes in creating playful-looking homewares and jewellery that are made from recycled materials. Founded and directed by Lauren Steller, CHAMP's products boast of a subtle yet stylish look that marries design and structure with modernity and creativity to make a statement in a unique manner.
A great local (South Australian) business that works towards created environment-friendly straws that are made of glass and come in a range of fun colors, DOKOLA's 'save straws' are reusable and recyclable, not to mention that they put a cute and attractive twist to the classic metallic straws. They are also currently stocked at Jam Factory and at Seppeltsfield Winery.
Fae & Wildling When I first met Sophie Welsh from Fae and Wildling at the Creative Lifestyle Design Market last year, I was fortunate enough to be able to sample some of her aromatic skincare products and wrote my experience upon using these products here. Having been loyally using her skincare products since and repeatedly being left impressed with silky smooth skin, it's a no-brainer to admire the beauty of her products, which are organically made and use only natural ingredients. This wonderful emerging South Australian business has built itself to provide quality care to a number of individuals' skin and you can spend anywhere between 5 - 20 minutes to nourish your skin. The packaging is eye-catching, the products are easy to apply, and the skin shows serious results in a matter of weeks.

Gemma Vendetta Cosmetics Another fantastic South Australian individual, whose cosmetics have been consistently taking space in my makeup cabinet (particularly her concealer, which is a dream to apply and is friendly on the skin), Gemma Vendetta Cosmetics is popular for being vegan-friendly and cruelty-free. Being a Brands SA ambassador and creating products that offer the skin with complete beauty without any of the nasties, this is one to keep an eye out for!

Sustomi Coming from Tasmania is Sustomi - a small scale business that prides itself on beeswax wraps that are all about zero-waste, whilst simultaneously being on-trend with its trendy packaging to keep your food feeling fresh all day and night!
