We are Dan and Amy and together with our children’s encouragement, we have created our eco-friendly business – Loam & Lore. After learning about climate change at school and watching David Attenbourgh’s world narrative, our youngest child came and asked us what can be done and how we can do something about it. Her simple question ignited a passionate fire within us.
We started educating ourselves about alternatives to plastics and ways that we could help reduce waste and help others live more sustainably. We discovered an incredible statistic that an average of 426,000 cell phones are thrown away every day across the world. That equals about 155,490,000 cell phones that are disposed of each year!
We imagine that along with all that electronic waste, there is a similar amount of plastic phone cases that are also discarded.
We decided that we needed to do something about that and Loam & Lore was born!
