    Ana Henderson Founder of Oh Goodness

     

    I'm Ana, and I started Oh Goodness in late 2018.

    The Lorax was my favourite book as a child, it made a huge impact on me and consequently I’ve always been “a bit of a greenie”, as my mother likes to say. As a child I brought my coke cans home in my suitcase from a trip overseas so that I could recycle them, much to the amusement of my family.

    I’m a mother of three, a musician and a foodie. I love being outside, moving my body and eating good food. I'm aware that the things I choose to put on or in my body may not be beneficial to my health nor the environment, so clothes, food and skincare are areas I've been more selective about in recent years.

    I love products that don’t impact the planet negatively. The amount of plastic waste in our world makes me deeply upset, and I’ve made a conscious effort to cut down on plastics use in our household. Bulk buying, cloth bags, metal straws, homemade yogurt sachets and refillable water bottles are all strategies I have implemented to reduce our waste and I try to do more each week. I try and find alternatives to the plastic wrapped options, to be a consumer who is aware and chooses the eco option. But it’s not always easy, and I believe manufacturers should be more accountable when it comes to packaging sustainably.

    Oh Goodness is the next step in that journey. My products are sustainable, only natural, organic, good-for-you ingredients and no plastic packaging.

    My mission is to provide products that work well, smell great and are good for both humans and the planet. Only Handmade Goodness. For Lorax lovers everywhere.
