Eco Gifts

We all want to go easier on the planet. Shopping local is even better when you find products made from renewable, upcycled, recycled, or reused materials, and gifts that promote nature, the environment, and sustainable living.

Natural ingredients, local stars

JungHwa Kim was born in South Korea and developed a passion for art and fashion in Europe. When she moved to New Zealand in 2012, her life changed from urban to rural and, surrounded by nature, she was inspired to focus on an eco-friendly life. Five years ago, she started making soap to reduce plastic use in her home. Her Studio Star soaps are made with natural ingredients and star beautiful local products like Black Estate wine, Latitude 42 manuka honey, Brew Moon beer, and seaweed from the Banks Peninsula.
