About Liné

Welcome to Eco World online. I started this website to research environmentally friendly and sustainable products. I feel quite strongly that every individual can make a difference to making our World a better place. That starts with looking after our planet and preserving what mother nature has given us. As an avid hand crafter, I also want to share my own experiences, and showcase some of my own hand crafted items .

At the same time I want to build up more funds for my retirement. I also want to be able to spend more time with my family that live far away. Affiliate marketing is one way that one can make a passive income online. Please visit my other website, https://passiveincomeearners.com/  where you can find out how I built this website and the tools that I used to do it.  As an-expat and work from home mum for many years, and now approaching retirement, I want to show you how you can also do it.

It Started long ago….

I was born in South Africa many moons ago and after graduating from university,Me with our granddaughter I spent about five years working from home, running a small hand weaving studio. I grew up in a large family and from a young age we were made aware of eating healthy foods and having to look after the environment. We used to go to the local farm to get fresh milk, which was organic. It had a thick layer of cream on the top, from which we used to make our own butter. We took turns churning it in a large glass container.

A skill that I learnt as a young girl was to sew and knit, and hand crafts have always interested me. I took those passions to university and part of my degree was studying textiles and design. There I also learnt the difference between natural fibers and synthetic and man made fibers.

When working with fabrics, whether making a garment or knitting a sweater, I can feel the difference in working with natural fibers. It is softer and kinder to my hands and skin. As I got older, I realised that the more processed and treated fibers and fabrics are, the more harmful it is to ourselves. And also to the environment. But many people do not realise this.

It can lead to….

I have a number of family members and friends that suffer from allergies and skin conditions. I have seen the difference when they wear organic clothing. Organic cotton and bamboo have longer fibers which make them softer and more absorbent and also non-allergenic. So no scratching and itchiness on sensitive skins. Even cancer patients find that it is far gentler on their skins than treated cotton.

Farmers and consumers benefit from organically grown products. Pesticides and insecticides are harmful to individuals, animals and the environment. It often destroys what is good as well. By cutting out harmful chemicals we can reduce respiratory problems as well.

So to guide and educate others to choose products that are not just better for themselves, but also enhances the environment we live in. It is a very satisfying feeling that one gets if you know that you have helped somebody else to learn something. Or to achieve their goal.

By making organic products more accessible and also affordable to more people, we can contribute to making the world better. And thus less harmful for our children and future generations. To build a sustainable industry supporting cotton and bamboo farmers that don’t use chemicals or GMO (genetically modified organisms) seeds.

We have a big vegetable garden and grow many of our own vegetables, meaning that I can harvest what we need and eat it the same day. It is very satisfying knowing that what we eat from our garden, has been produced without any harmful chemicals.

  2. I was about to shut my computer down when I was drawn to your site “Eco-W*rld”.  Anything that promotes the environment is a plus in my opinion so thank you for creating this site. I think there is a great need for environmentally sustainable products that are also at accessible prices. I think you are right, organic clothing is a much better (& more sustainable) way to produce clothes that help to prevent allergies and skin conditions. Thank you for sharing your motivations for this site.  More power to your elbow and website!  I hope your advice is widely read.

  3. I like organic products and always try to find some, but it’s not easy nowadays. The good thing is that we have the internet and can search for everything and find out about products, companies, ingredients. Then it’s our choice what to go for.

    It’s nice that you want to make a difference, grow your own vegetables, I wish I had one too. We only have a miniature garden and can’t grow anything there, apart from some flowers and bushes for decoration. But I have some herbs there and add them to my cooking, and sometimes make home-made lemonade with mint or melissa from my garden in summer. 

    Your website is very nice and contains a lot of useful information. I can see you have some reviews of sewing machines here and my mom will need a new one so I’m gonna look at your recommendations.

    • Thank you for your kind comments and you are welcome. Growing herbs in pots are a good way of providing organic produce and great that you can use some products from your garden.

    • Thank you so much for reaching out to me and I would love to help you. Although I am an affiliate for a great swimwear brand that is based in California, I unfortunately do not have resources for manufactures. I will certainly keep my eyes and ears open and will let you know if I come across anything that might assist you. All the best, Liné
