About Us

Thanks for wanting to learn more about ECOccasion. 

I built this site because, perhaps like you, I felt overwhelmed about the plastic pollution crisis and I didn't know what I could personally do about it. Wasn't it a disappointment to learn that plastic recycling is a myth? Major bummer!

I am a DIYer and pretty thrifty so it would make sense that I designed and built the site myself and do all the marketing, product sourcing, etc. My career has been in digital marketing and interactive media. I was laid off in March due to COVID-19 so that gave me some much needed extra time to work on it.

The rest of my support crew includes my husband, Sean and my three girls (product testers) Avery, Sydney and Brooke.

Thanks for joining me! I can't wait to read your reviews and if you have recommendations for new products for the shop, I would love to hear them.

All the Best,
