LOCAL LIFE: The two friends on a mission to make the world a healthier place

08 August 2018

Two friends are on a mission to pull together a community to tackle some of the biggest health and environmental challenges threatening our kids.

Charlie Thompson, a self-confessed eco geek, and Georgia Lawson, a mum with a nutritional background, are the co-founders of The Clean Collective, a health-conscious, planet-loving community and shop.

“We can only be as healthy as our planet and when we look at Earth and her inhabitants as one, we’re not as well as we could be,” says Charlie. “Up to 24% of health disorders are now linked to toxins like parabens, phthalates, and pesticides found in mainstream products, like skincare and household cleaners. And our waste is growing at double the rate of our population, with 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic debris believed to be in our ocean – harming our environment and threatening the health and sustainability of food chains for future generations.”

Charlie and Georgia believe that everyone should have access to the information and solutions they need to create a healthier and kinder lifestyle. “The exciting reality is that we each have the power to change these scary statistics. With 72% of our total toxic exposure taking place in the home, we have personal control of nearly three quarters of the harmful toxins we’re coming into contact with,” explains Georgia. “We want to connect and inspire a collective of like-minded people with the savviest natural and eco solutions on the market, as well as the most up-to-date and practical information, so they can make more informed purchases for their family and our planet. Together, as a collective, we can better our health, support the environment and help make the Earth a healthier place for future generations.”

They’ve pulled together the healthiest and kindest products for your family and our planet under one roof, guided by an ingredients and materials policy that they believe is the strictest in Australia. And they’ve partnered with Take 3 For The Sea to give the community a chance to remove plastic from the ocean with every purchase they make.

By the end of 2018, their aim is to:

  • Remove 10,000 pieces of plastic pollution from the environment or teach 330 kids about pollution through their partnership with Take 3 For The Sea.
  • Stop 12 kilolitres of toxic chemical products coming into contact with people and the planet.
  • Prevent 500,000 single-use disposable products from being used and going to landfill.

But they need your help!

“We can only do this together. That’s why we’re passionate about building a community, not a supermarket. We even encourage people to buy less!” says Charlie. “If you’ve ever wanted to make positive social and environmental change, and to be involved in a kind community that celebrates every success, we’d love for you to join us!”

With your help, this revolutionary website could pave the way for a brighter future.


A shop with a difference.  A community with a mission.  A voice for a better future.

The Clean Collective is a parent’s #1 resource for creating a healthy, toxin-free environment for their family, while also bringing a vital bit of love and protection to our planet.
