Now there’s a stylish way to live a sustainable lifestyle……. Meet porter green, the ultimate in stylish reusables for everyday living, gifting & entertaining.
A women-owned, family business founded by entrepreneurial sisters Jane Cox and Mary Warnest in 2018, porter green is based in Melbourne, Australia. Since launching, the company has experienced rapid growth as savvy consumers have fallen in love with its innovative, affordable, and stylish collection.
The porter green message is simple – for the future of our planet and for the sake of our children, grand-children and beyond, make sustainable choices –choose reusable over single-use every time.
The name porter green was inspired by a tradition of the strong, resilient women in our family in who's footsteps we aspire to follow. 'porter' is not only the French verb 'to carry', it is also the maiden name of our mother, Wendy. Wendy was unique, creative and innovative and these attributes have always been at the heart of the porter green ethos. 'green', is not only the message behind the products we create, it is also an ode to Alma who's tenacity and courage continues to inspire her granddaughters.
Appearing on major B2C platforms in the domestic and international markets and currently stocked by over 650 outlets around Australia & New Zealand, the brand was also recently released in South East Asia and the UK, and will launch in the US in early 2022.
Featuring amongst the core collection are fegg unbreakable silicone tumblers and stemm unbreakable silicone stemmed wine glasses. These stylish little gems continue to sell out wherever they are stocked and with the current emphasis on outdoor socializing and picnics, they make the perfect gift for absolutely everyone! Joining fegg and stemm is urbb – the reusable coffee cup designed and engineered in Australia by the porter green team and made from biodegradable bamboo, driss – double insulated stainless steel hot/cold bottles, sebss – spun bamboo serving trays and perss – reusable recyclable shopping bags.
Set to join the collection in late 2021 are three ground-breaking silicone products which will position porter green at the forefront of the sustainable entertaining arena. In addition, all of the eco-friendly products in the stunning collection are fully customizable with the client’s own pantones, prints & logos and the company is proud to have had its design-driven sustainable collection chosen for bespoke promotional products across a diverse range of industries.
porter green is honoured to announce that driss – their double-walled, insulated stainless steel hot/cold bottle and stemm – their brilliant unbreakable silicone stemmed wine glasses, have just been selected as finalists in the prestigious Clean and Conscious Awards 2021. Recognizing and celebrating exceptional products that work in perfect harmony with our bodies, environment, and society, all finalist products in the Clean & Conscious awards are verified to be safe, ethical, sustainable, and responsible. The judges also loved the perfect pairing of form and function and superb quality of driss and stemm.
COVID-19 has, of course, presented a unique set of challenges. In response to the pandemic and to support its wholesale and retail communities, porter green introduced the Safety Edit - its very own, high end hand sanitising serum and surface sprays. The products are MSDS certified, NICNAS registered and are 75% alcohol based for maximum effectiveness. When the team learned that Ambulance Victoria was unable to secure supply, it was an easy decision to donate 1000 bottles of handss sanitiser serum. In addition, a donation was made to Sacred Heart Mission. Its team were thrilled to be able to provide its community with sanitiser when supply was so scarce. As the world begins to adapt to new safety guidelines, porter green’s sanitiser and antibacterial surface spray collection has become a mainstay on the shelves of stores around the country.
