Our Story

Grass-roots environmental campaign turned eco-business.

From a young age, I was always passionate about the environment, with a true love for frolicking in the woods. As I grew older, I became dedicated to discover what I could personally do to help the world's natural ecosystems thrive and sustain themselves. I wanted to focus in on something in particular where I could make long lasting change. I soon realized that my passion, dedication, and frustration about the single-use plastic pollution epidemic could be channeled into something proactive and positive. 

This is where Earth Sunflower was born.

Earth Sunflower's mission is to not only educate the public on single-use plastics, but to provide eco-friendly, non-toxic, sustainable alternatives. We pride ourselves on the products we sell, the mission we stand behind, and the brighter, greener future we can all create together. 

I try my hardest to ensure that all of our products are sustainably, ethically and responsibly sourced. I got first hand experiences in India and South East Asia where many of our products are responsibly sourced from. These rich cultures hold a very special place in my heart. 

Why I Started Earth Sunflower

A note from our CEO, Jill.

I choose to source my products from India and South East Asia. Heres why: Before I launched Earth Sunflower I was blessed to have the opportunity to travel all over the world studying, volunteering, and interning, working towards a job in the humanitarian world. I wanted to be involved with social services, work in a non-profit organization, and create equality, justice, and economic growth for those around the world that are desperate and impoverished. This journey, lead me to one special place, India.

In my stay there, I saw an astonishing amount of plastic pollution, but I also got to meet and befriend the people living among it. Incredible people with incredible talents. Long after I left, I would always remember their ingenuity and perseverance. 

Many years, and countries later, I found my love and passion for environmentalism (it was always there, just needed the right time and place for it to blossom). Still equally as passionate about international affairs, politics, and economics, I decided I wanted to combine the two.

When it was time to begin buying products for Earth Sunflower, I knew I wanted to partner with companies that employed local artisans that made handmade eco-friendly products, helping support their craft and their families while also stimulating economic growth in areas that I had visited years prior. 

With a lot of dedication, long days, and a big heart, my dream has become a reality. Almost all of our products are hand crafted by local, talented artisans in India and Indonesia. Every purchase of these products will benefit them and their livelihood directly. It will also benefit Mother Earth, who deserves a break from more plastic.

We can not deny how interconnected the world has become, and the positive and negative impacts of globalization. Every piece of clothing, shoe, car, even your favorite avocado, has likely traveled across the globe to get to you. At Earth Sunflower, my promise is that this is done responsibly, ethically, and helping not only Mother Earth, but also the people that inhabit this beautiful planet.
