Welcome to The Sustainable Home Hub, an award-winning eco-living, home, travel and lifestyle blog. We are all about inspiring you to tread lightly on our planet, while tackling climate grief & eco-anxiety. I am Helen Edwards, an award winning writer, blogger and children's author. I am Mama to 3 beautiful sons and I have just finished my PhD in psychology.

Our focus is on helping you to take small, simple, realistic and actionable steps, to a more sustainable life, while reducing eco-anxiety and climate grief.

Whether you want to make changes towards being more sustainable at home, get back in touch with nature and your loved ones, travel our beautiful Australian countryside while remaining as eco-friendly as possible, or just want to create a healthier, happier life, where you tread more lightly on our beautiful Mother Earth - you are in the right place.

Join our community and become part of the kindness and hope revolution. Let's change the conversation. Let's acknowledge our sadness and grief about our planet, but also, let's stand together and make a difference. Let's see the joy in our planet so we can stay on the path to keeping her safe and healthy. Let's do this together, with kindness and hope, for our children's futures. Come join our revolution of kindness and hope.
