A New West woman has launched an eco-friendly online boutique.
Alexandra Vrabec launched the Two Little Sparrows online boutique in July.
“I carry a selection of hand-curated items that are zero-waste and plastic free,” she said in an email to the Record. “My boutique strives for sustainability with reusable and eco-friendly products – for the kitchen, for the bathroom, for you, for wear etc.”
In addition to selling products like reusable straws, bamboo toothbrushes, beeswax wraps, mesh produce bags and silicone bag and covers, Vrabec also has a blog and provides eco-tips through Two Little Sparrows.
“So much is going on with the world right now when it comes to climate change and zero-waste/plastic-free living,” said Vrabec, an elementary school teacher. “Every small step makes a huge difference and impact.”
The name Two Little Sparrows represents Vrabec and her son Josh. She said Vrabec has a Czech origin and means sparrow.
“Owning my own business has always been a dream and passion of mine and so has the awareness of what we are doing to our earth and how we need to change our ways so that future generations can live sustainably and ethically,” she said. “We need to realize how much of an impact we have and what we do is affecting everything and everyone around us. We have the power to make an impact on the world, we just need to make the right one.”
