In this episode, we talk to Luke Morris. He is an entrepreneur and the creator of Wild Body Active and Wild Wood.
During this episode, we take a look at some of the endangered species their Wild Wood products are named after. We also look at how switching to a bamboo toothbrush can help the environment.
[01:10] How did your sustainable journey start?
[02:10] When you travel around Asia and there is kids kicking water bottles, plastic bottle on the beach as suppose to footballs, then it kind of stays in your mind.
[03:56] What inspired the start of your company Wild Wood?
[06:07] I wanted it to be all eco-friendly and sustainable, made from reclaimed wood.
[07:02] I also wanted to bring in endangered species into play and give our sunglasses a bit of character as well.
[08:30] They are made from recycled bamboo. The bristles are bio-degradable polymer mixed with charcoal so it gives it a natural kind of ingredient but it also is good for removing plaque and for making your teeth white and natural.
[10:44] People love the fact that they are named after endangered species and the watches are actually named after rainforests and jungles so that is a different dynamic.
[11:34] So for every pair of sunnies or watch that is purchased we plant one tree through the nature conservancy.
[14:08]: You can purchase our products at Surfhouse or from the stock list of retailers or distributors.
[14:38] What has been one of your most important decisions that you have made around mama earth?
1. What is one social media platform that you follow?
When on a sustainable journey you do not have to feel you are moving a mountain every single day. Focus on the things that you can do and start with the little things in your life that you can change and feel good about them.
