MEET THE FOUNDERS
We founded Olive + George with the desire to slow down and find an alternative way to live in a world filled with constant busyness and instant access.
The gift store has been carefully curated to include products that encourage connections between family and friends and spark conversations with all ages, inspiring you to slow down, live sustainably and enjoy life.
As future generation carers, we want to make choices that benefit the lives of those around us whilst at the same time looking after the planet.
WHAT SLOW MEANS TO US
Buying less often and with a more considered approach.
Supporting local businesses and making connections in my community.
Appreciating something’s natural and genuine state, myself included.
Living with purpose. I feel whole when I am with my family. I feel whole when I am stimulated creatively. I feel whole when I am absorbed in the things I love.
Mindful of what I buy, making sure it does not have a negative impact on another person or the planet.
Making sure to explore, enjoy and take care of the things that are local to me. Caring for local wildlife.
Being true to who i am. Teaching myself and my children that in this world of comparison, we are enough as we are.
Being surrounded by the people I love. Caring for others. Knowing the truth so I am able to make educated, informed decisions. Living without guilt.
