POSITIVE LIVING ORIGIN
A Sustainable Journey
Hello! My name is Zena and I started the Positive Living Store to help people who want to reduce the amount of plastic they use. I've worked from home for a number of years now but this is a new and exciting venture for me.
I have 3 children. One is all grown up, graduated from Uni and about to move to London. I'm proud and heartbroken in equal measures. The parenting journey is one of mixed emotions that's for sure.
Fortunately, my nest is not empty. I have two young daughters aged 8 and 6 years old that are well versed in keeping me on my toes. I strive to bring up all my children with an awareness of the world around them and how important it is to to do what we can to care for the planet.
In recent years I've been saddened by the impact plastic waste has on the environment. The thought of a sea turtle mistaking a plastic bag for a jelly fish is heartbreaking. The amount of plastic being consumed by the planet's sea life is scary. The amount of plastic being consumed by humans is equally as scary.
The Positive Living Store is a place people can make small and affordable swaps to reduce their plastic use. Lots of people making small changes is going to have a bigger impact on the planet than a handful of people becoming entirely zero waste.
We hope to provide our customers with helpful, natural and biodegradable alternatives to using plastic products. As some one who is keen to reduce the use of plastic in her own home, it's a journey I hope to take with you.
Thanks so much for stopping by. If there is anything we can help you with, please don't hesitate to reach out.
