"Shopping True means spending money consciously. Making your purchases locally means you are supporting your community whilst cutting down on the impact of carbon emissions from global shipping"
So just what is The True Co?
THANNKS FOR ASKING AND LOVELY TO MEET YOU!
The True Co is your marketplace for 100% Australian owned and manufactured, sustainable lifestyle goods, delivered carbon neutrally in eco-friendly packaging.
All of our products are made in Australia, and are carefully selected to bring you peace of mind, knowing that you are making a difference by truly shopping local, cutting down on carbon emissions and making sustainable eco-conscious choices in your everyday life to help protect our mother Earth.
And who is behind all of this?
MEET MICHELLE, FOUNDER AND OWNER OF THE TRUE CO
Michelle created The True Co to help people really understand the impact that their purchases can have. An avid online shopper herself, too many times she found herself nearly purchasing products that were secretly produced overseas, or presenting themselves as an eco-friendly option, only to look into it a little further to find out that was infact not true,
A staunch campaigner against greenwashing and globalisation, through the True Co Michelle hopes to highlight the importance of shopping locally, not only to support your community, but to realise the terrifying amount of carbon emissions that are produced by producing offshore and shipping internationally.
Born out of the COVID-19 pandemic, the international crisis has only further amplified the need for Australian to ensure that they are not reliant on other countries for their manufacturing.
Surely not everything is Australian made?
NOT JUST AUSTRALIAN MADE, BUT AUSTRALIAN OWNED TOO!
That's right. Absolutely every single product we sell is 100% AUSTRALIAN OWNED, and 100% MADE IN AUSTRALIA
That's why we're allowed to use the Australian Made logo, because we are a registered Australian Made campaign Retail Supporter.
If you don't see the logo, then there is a pretty good chance what your buying is produced offshore.
Doesn't online shopping leave a lot of waste?
THAT'S WHY WE USE 100% RECYCLED AND RECYLABLE PACKAGING
Not only are the shipping boxes we use made from recycled cardboard, but everything we send you to deliver your beautiful Australian Made products is 100% recyclable and non-toxic, all the way down to the tape and shipping labels.
Did we mention that all of our packaging is 100% Australian Made as well?
Of course, the most environmentally friendly way to package things is to repurpose packaging that we receive, so we will absolutely do this where possible! It's all about having the lowest impact on our planet that we possibly can!
Delivering products still leaves a carbon footprint though!
NEVER FEAR! WE USE SENDLE WHO OFFSET 100% OF THEIR CARBON EMISSIONS

All of this sounds.. expensive!
