#ILoveAustralian is lovingly created by Laura & David Conti. We run a social enterprise called #GoKindly, and we're passionate about the Australian small business ecosytem. We know there are tonnes of local + small brands and we want them to thrive & be found easily by Australians.
The #ILoveAustralian journey started with a simple blog at the start of COVID-19 shutdowns, to share local brands we loved with friends. It soon became clear that finding small, local brands wasn't easy for the average, time poor consumer, in the big place that is the internet!
#iLoveAustralian was born to make shopping for local Australian brands easy.
Thank you for choosing to shop small + local, and for supporting your community.
What is #iLoveAustralian's Mission & Values?
#iLoveAustralian was born from a small blog, frustrated that we couldn't buy small + local easily. We're committed to supporting small business generously, to giving back more than we take & lifting up the voices of the marginalised. We proudly support businesses built by those from diverse backgrounds - Indigenous businesses, NDIS-approved & accessable businesses.
