Last Friday Yogi Peace Club joined other local brands at the Twilight Market held at Ocean Grind in Torquay. It was incredible to be with so many other local brands, and was a perfect opportunity to connect with creative, like-minded people.
Torquay is the home to global brands such as Rip Curl and Quiksilver. The emerging small brands have big dreams, and have seen the success of other local entrepreneurs make their brands an international success. Not that chasing the money is what we all want, but more so how we can impact in the world through small environmental changes with more sustainable products and spreading a message of health and eco awareness.
It was great to interact with customers and talk about the eco benefits of the Yoga mats being PVC free. Also I think they enjoyed meeting the faces behind the small local brands.
Some of the other brands included Patagonia Provisions, alongside some of the Surf Coast's finest producers: Zeally Bay Sourdough, That Place Patisserie, Basils Farm, Great Ocean Road Wholefoods and Fire Tonic by Hilbilby Cultured Food.
Arizona living, Baw Baw Surfbags. Anahata Crystal healing, Seabright Lighting, Jux.
Eddy St Common, Earth Bottles, OKKI were some of the other amazing local brands with an eco edge for fashion and homewares.
The market showcased that there is so much going in our coastal region. It was a fabulous chance to see everyone together under one roof on a balmy Spring evening.
