The Activated Eco Story
Welcome to Activated Eco - a website and community to inspire families and households around the world to reduce their plastic waste.
We are Jesse Bentley and Chris Montgomery, lifelong friends, animal lovers and eco enthusiasts. We have always been earth-conscious and tried to reduce waste in our own families where possible. After a conversation comparing our recycling methods one day, we realised that there were a lot of misconceptions about what it means to “live green”, and that many everyday people felt that it was an “all or none” situation”. So we decided to do something about it...
“We don't need a handful of people doing zero waste perfectly. We need millions of people doing it imperfectly.” ~Anne Marie Bonneau
We believe even the smallest change can make a difference and encourage everyone to join us on our journey to reduce plastic waste.
From Idea to Reality
We researched which household items were the most problematic in terms of plastic waste and the impact these items have on the planet and built our online store. Finally, our ideas and hard work came to fruition, when Activated Eco was founded in early 2017.
Our first signature product, our Stainless Steel Infinity Pegs were more popular than we could ever imagine. We completely underestimated the immense dislike people have for plastic pegs and the unnecessary waste and frustrating mess they create.
We then added additional high-quality reusable straws in a range of eco-friendly materials, and eco-friendly kitchenware. We aim to make eco-friendly, reusable products easily accessible to everyday people by providing a range of high-quality products that will replace the single-use plastic items that end up in landfills and take hundreds of years to decay.
