the zero-waste shopping revolution

Meet the Ere Perez community! Let us introduce you to our neighbour and friend “The Health Emporium” in Bondi, Australia. It’s already been a year since Australia’s supermarket giants Woolworths and Coles dropped their single use plastic bags at their checkouts. As we begin to choose more sustainable and ethical produce, we are choosing zero-waste options. The Health Emporium in Bondi are not only providing high quality organic produce, naturopathic supplements and natural beauty products, but are consciously practising environmental sustainability that aims to look after each other and most importantly our planet.

celebrating in style

Founders Juan and Ere Perez celebrated 20 years of marriage in Merida, Mexico earlier this month. Merida is one of Mexico’s cultural capitals and is close to Chichen-Itzá famous Mayan ruins and the natural cenotes (underground waterholes) found throughout the stunning Yucatan Peninsula. The colourful commitment ceremony was hosted at the stunning Hacienda Teya, founded in 1683, this cattle ranch turned to cultivating henequen (yellowish fibre from the agave plant) at the beginning of the 20th century. The abandoned hacienda was purchased in 1974 and restored to the classic beauty we see today, known for its traditional Yucatán restaurant, vast green gardens and seventeenth century ballrooms that host weddings like that of Juan and Ere.

reuse and recycle

Working for a company that is focused on making more ethical & sustainable products has made me aware about issues of recycling, plastic and waste. It’s something I notice in the office, when I am shopping and also – at home.   Ere Perez has inspired me to try to use less plastic on a daily basis, to take my own bags to the shops & be conscious when choosing which brands to support with my money. All of this led to me doing some research about recycling in Australia… Australia’s waste industry is in crisis. China’s sudden decision to stop importing waste material for recycling has changed the economics of recycling markets in Australia. India and Malaysia have followed China’s lead. This means Australia has lost 1/3 of the export for recycling, and the government is trying to figure out what to do with all that rubbish. The Australian Council of Recycling has warned that some councils and recycling firms have been pushed to send their kerbside recycling to landfill; recycling is “greatly under threat”.

new york, we love you!

My brand is one of my greatest loves. Beginning in Bondi, it has grown and expanded all the way to New York! We recently travelled to the Big Apple with my family and team of amazing people who put so much love and passion into Ere Perez. We met incredible people, trained our new distributors and exhibited our hearts out to thousands of people. For a small brand that began in Australia, we have loved the journey of sharing our products with people all over the world. Expanding to the US was a highlight of 2018. Seeing people discover our products, learn about the brand and explore our makeup & skincare made me so happy!
