To create safe, powerful, plant-based products using natural, sustainable ingredients, while aiding people’s well-being by connecting them to nature.
When we return to nature, we return to ourselves.
Since we started Koala Eco five years ago, the business has become about so much more than making safe, powerful, plant-based products for a clean home, body and mind. It’s become a mission to find ways to bring more nature into everyone’s lives, every day.
Because from our own experiences, we know that a deep, sustained, and daily connection to nature makes us feel so much better in a variety of ways. Calmer. Happier. More at peace with the world, and yet also more alert and alive. More connected to, and appreciative of the places we live, the people we love.
Through ongoing research, science is now catching up with ancient and living Traditional Owner wisdom that connecting with nature is more than a ‘nice to have’ part of our lives – it plays a key role in our ongoing health and well-being at every stage of life.
Developing and maintaining a connection with nature is something we’re passionate about at Koala Eco. As a purpose-led brand inspired by and centred around the natural world, a core part of our mission is to aid our community in connecting with and experiencing nature. A connection with nature enhances mental, physical, and emotional well-being. More Nature, Feel Better.
Ecopsychology - why spending time in nature is good for your mental health.
Research around the link between nature and our mental health and well-being has led to the rise of "ecopsychology". It acknowledges the inherent emotional connection between humans and nature and seeks to foster and expand this relationship. The concept also proposes that many instances of psychological distress are caused by our alienation from and complicity in the destruction of nature.
To further our mission to foster a connection with nature, we are also the proud principal sponsor of the People & Parks Foundation's #NaturePact initiative. Taking place every September, #NaturePact encourages people, businesses, schools, and organisations to commit to spending intentional time in nature every day for a month, bringing transformative benefits to mental health, energy, and well-being.
An Hour in Nature®
At Koala Eco, we believe our connection to nature is a wonderful and precious thing, informing how we think and live, and also how we care for each other and the planet. This belief is so fundamental to the Koala Eco ethos that we even apply it to our team’s work schedule, encouraging everyone to spend an hour in nature each week: intentionally setting aside time to do something connected to the natural world that feels particularly healing.
It also complements our An Hour in Nature® Journal, which interviews inspiring people we believe genuinely embody a nature-focused lifestyle to showcase their practices and unique experiences.
We Give Back
Each time you buy a Koala Eco product, we donate to the charity One Percent for the Planet to assist in the ongoing protection of land, forests, rivers, oceans, and also to encourage sustainable methods of energy production. We also support WWF Australia’s Partners in Purpose program which aims to rehabilitate and restore wildlife and habitats, and future-proof Australia against climate disasters.
From which we came, of which we are, the oceans and the forests in our very DNA. When we return to nature, we return to ourselves. Joy increases, well-being returns.
In Australia, we live with nature at our doorstep. Vivid, wild and wonderful, it sings and hisses, it burns and heals. A force within a flower. Wisdom in every leaf.
It is at the core of our being to turn to nature for solutions, to trust in the power of our natural world to solve our problems, big & small.
Our vision is to bring more nature into our lives each day and to feel better for it.
More Nature, Feel Better.®
