"An indigo girl - The girl next door; a lover of life; a woman with an environmental conscience; an ocean lover; a woman who loves womanhood; who supports, nurtures and encourages women; and who believes in the power of the feminine..."
Hi and welcome to our Indigo and Salt - an all women's sustainable online surf store for all women around the globe, and it is run by myself; a surfer, a mother of one and a lifetime environmentalist. Sustainability, human health and the health of our planet has always be so important to me in my personal life that it just makes sense that this carries over into my business too.
Indigo and Salt was born from a desire for change.
As surfers and ocean voyagers, we long for the pristine wilderness of the ocean, yet are unknowingly poisoning it every time we enter it. We as humans, have such a huge petrochemical footprint. From surfwear to wetsuits, sunscreens to legropes and waxes; every single mainstream item created for surfing has been created from petrochemicals. But there are alternatives and that is what Indigo and Salt is about.
Here you'll find a collective of gorgeous indie labels slowing everything down and choosing sustainability over profits. Most of them are women and all of them small people like you and me, doing their bit for our health, our ocean's health and the health of our planet.
You can trust that what you find in our store is either a) sustainable, b) ethical, c) slow fashion or mostly d) all of the above. Our entire store is single use plastic free and 100% palm oil free and toxin free. Guaranteed.
2019 saw us launch into sustainable winter sports with the introduction of Niche snowboards into our store. I am super excited to see what the future has for sustainability in all genres of women’s sport.
Indigo and Salt is a proud supporter of women. I love to support the feminine. I truly believe that the vulnerability we hold as women is our strength. Now is our time.
Indigo and Salt is currently based online although I run seasonal pop up stores and events in our local Illawarra community. If you're keen to come view something from the webstore, just get in touch to arrange a time! The kettle is always on...
Indigo and Salt is so much more than just a store. It is a space for likeminded women to inspire, to feel inspired, to nurture, and a space where spirituality can grow. It's a push for sustainability and awareness, and the hope for a cleaner and more responsible world free of plastic. A slower world. It's about belief in women, with the hope of a more feminine world. Come join us on facebook and instagram. We have a pretty sweet feed if I say so myself! You'll find the links at the bottom of most pages.
You can contact me with all your questions via firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to you joining our tribe, loving our gear and helping us to push sustainability for everyone.
