Your journey to a life aligned begins here.

The idea of being ‘eco-conscious’ might at times seem overwhelming. Navigating between the ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ way to do things, confusing labels & terminology, conflicting information and opinions, and trying to figure out if you really are making a difference.

Well, we’ve been there too.

— and that’s exactly why we started The Durham Originals. Our philosophy is that doing good shouldn’t be so hard, and that by just taking the first step, we already are on the way to the Eco-Life! Even if we only start with just one thing we are already shifting our perspective of daily living and creating positive impact. Ready for your best life?
