What an incredible week it was in Sydney last week, and I’m still finding it hard to believe. I’m thrilled to share that I was honored with the SUSTAINABILITY EXCELLENCE AWARD at the 2023 AusMumpreneur Awards! 🎉🏆🎉

I have always been very passionate about the environment and sustainable design. I am a big believer that sustainable design can and must be affordable for everyone.

With Gruen Eco Design we design Beautiful, Energy Efficient, Sustainable & Healthy spaces for future generations that won’t cost the earth.

I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to my wonderful team and my supportive family. Their unwavering dedication made this achievement possible. A big thank you also goes out to our exceptional clients and to everyone who has extended their support throughout our journey.

I’d like to extend my sincere appreciation to Kate and Pearse, as well as to the esteemed judges and sponsors. It’s thanks to each of you that we can celebrate the success of these remarkable women.

What sets us apart is our commitment to prioritize eco-consciousness over personal pride. Sustainability and client budgets serve as the foundation for all our designs, with aesthetics following suit. Our approach focuses on integrating energy efficiency from the outset, rather than retrofitting it into a design. We’re incredibly proud to have created over 300 energy-efficient and health-conscious homes across Australia. Yet, my personal mission extends beyond design—it’s about guiding others toward a more sustainable lifestyle.

To that end, we’re dedicated to raising awareness and driving positive change through various avenues. From talks and webinars to podcasts, educational posts on social media, advocacy, volunteer efforts, and more, we’re working to expand our impact beyond individual projects. Our vision is to contribute to a better world, one house at a time.

I’m deeply grateful for the remarkable mums I’ve had the pleasure of meeting last week too. The speakers and presentations have left me truly inspired and in awe of what we can accomplish when we believe in ourselves 🥰💕💖
