Conscious Mae grew from a passion to care for Mother Nature, a love of beautiful, locally made things and my inspiration that brought it all to life – my daughter, Lenny Mae.
My name is Jackie and welcome to Conscious Mae. A collection of locally made products that are plastic-free and consciously created. I have a strong pull towards nature and the desire to protect and preserve her. I want to ensure that I do my part in the preservation of our earth for our babies, and their babies' babies!
I have always had a passion to support local makers; my own sister is a talented potter and her passion and love for her ceramic creations is undeniable.
I believe that every purchase we make can have an impact. Even if we just swapped one purchase to something more consciously made we can make a difference. Not only for the environment, but for our local makers. The saying goes something like, "for every purchase made, a small business owner will be doing a happy dance!" So, let's support them!
My background is creative and marketing. Having worked in the corporate marketing world for over 9 years (in-house marketing teams specifically), I discovered my core values and felt like these corporations didn’t align with what I truly believed in. I wanted to find purpose and to express my creative side through my passion and live a more fulfilling life!
I have always searched to find local products that are made in Australia and also plastic-free. I always found myself backwards and forwards between numerous sites, trying to remember where I bought what! Which is great if you have plenty of time to search the web. Then I became a mum and I found that all of a sudden 'me time' was so limited. That’s when I thought of an idea...to bring together Australian made products that are also plastic-free and consciously created. And, here it is in the flesh – a carefully curated online store, Conscious Mae.
I hope you enjoy your experience with us and that this is a place you enjoy visiting.
