Hello hello, it’s Audrey here. I started The Karma Collective in November 2016 when I was working in corporate marketing. Although I really enjoyed my work at the time, I wanted to do more to give back to the community. I began working on The Karma Collective concept at nights and on weekends. I started out by hand pouring and selling soy wax candles at markets around Melbourne. My partner, Dave, helps me out at night and on weekends. My mamma, Elaine, also works with me too (and is the self appointment new boss in town).
Our mission is to protect and improve the lives of animals in need. We do this by donating 10% of our sales to charities that improve animal welfare.
Since launching, we have grown our online store to include lots of high-quality gifts, home wares and body products. You can also find our candles in approximately 30 stores around Australia.
In the past few years, we’ve donated over $40,000 to our charity partners^. We are currently working with Sun Bear Outreach to help fund an enclosure build for rescued bears in Borneo and the rehabilitation of some cubs who we hope to return to the wild where they belong.
We also work in a hands on capacity with this project, so we’ve been to Borneo several times to help look after the bears, including the cubs we are rehabilitating.
When you purchase products from our store, you contribute directly to animals who need help.
We want to make the world a better place in our own small way. We can’t do it on our own so we are forever grateful for the support of our customers and friends.
Come and join The Karma Collective – a place where compassion, resilience, integrity and authenticity are at the core of our values. Join us on our journey to make the world a better place for our animal friends.
