Working with Me
Do you have a business, brand, product or story to share? If you are a great fit for what I stand for, then we should chat! The Sustainable Home Hub is an award winning blog and one of the most popular sustainable and healthy home and living blogs in Australia. Most recently, I won a bronze award for sustainability in the AusMumpreneur Awards in 2018.
We have a rapidly growing community of over 140,000 people across our social media channels, keen for stories about sustainable living, interior design and decorating, eco and green living, DIY products and projects, healthy living and more.
This offers you the perfect platform to present your brand, across the blog and social channels.
As an award-winning writer, blogger, speaker and advocate, who is also a social media pioneer, I am the perfect person to collaboarate with you and share your stories.
I first began blogging, connecting with people and growing community online in 2001; and am now one of Australia's top bloggers and a published author. The Sustainable Home Hub, is the number 1 sustainable living blog & number 10 home design blog in Australia via Catablog and I have featured in a range of media including print, radio and television.
I have spoken at a variety of sustainable living and community events, including the World Environment Fair, Adelaide Sustainable Building Network events, Gawler Sustainable Living Festival and the Pratically Green Festival.
A passionate and genuine lover of people and planet, my aim is to inspire and educate people to make changes in their lives to be more sustainable while creating a home they love.
I was an Australian of the Year state finalist in 2016 and a Telstra Business Women's Award state finalist in 2015. I am married with 3 sons and when not writing, blogging, reading, and chatting with my community online, I love to spend time with my beautiful family, walking in nature, pottering at home doing renovations and DIY, and taking road trips across our beautiful country.

WHAT SOME OF OUR PARTNERS AND COMMUNITY ARE SAYING
"Hi Helen -I have enjoyed the decorating challenge. It has motivated me to clear out the room we never use, but just walk through it to get to the bedroom and make it a workable room again. I am slowly bringing everything back in and working out where everything is going to fit nicely. I like how your room has art work all over the walls, I have never thought of that before, to me one art work to one wall has been norm. I am changing that and heading to get more hooks ( don't tell my husband!). Thanks for motiovating many people, especially me 😉 - Colleen
"Dear Helen -I love to read your emails and visit your blog. Thank you for taking the time and effort to do this. I certainly agree that decorating is good for you. I inherited some vintage china from my mother. Most of it has very little monetary value but I love to wash them and rearrange them as it gives me a great feeling of connectedness. I sew quilts for myself and my family. I feel a sense of achievement when they are complete. I have a little table that was in my bedroom when I was a child. I painted it and added photocopies of my father’s war records, my parents’ marriage certificate and other similar documents. I love this table and hope my children and grandchildren will one day love it as well. So many things in my home bring me joy because of the memories attached to them. Keep up the good work. You are making a difference" Naomi

As a directory, it’s a great listing for services and products with a sustainable focus. And as a platform, it’s providing information and advocacy for green living. It’s smart. And, it’s the way of the future.”—KT Doyle, Founder, JEANBAG

Helen's experience ranges from founding an online counselling service for people with diabetes to now focusing on her sustainable living and decorating business. Helen's successful approach to social media and blogging has seen her business grow and she continuously demonstrates a strong passion for health, wellbeing and sustainability. - Nicole Bassett, PROJECT MANAGER
"We had the wonderful pleasure of working with Helen. Her fine eye for detail was a wonderful advantage for us. She gave great ideas for our campaign and our expectations were more than exceeded. We would not hesitate to work with Recycled Interiors in the future. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for agreeing to work with Pigeon and Weasel. Ariane and Prue x" Pigeon and Weasel
"We really admire everything about Helen at Recycled Interiors & the Sustainable Home Hub. Personally it's such a great resource and go to website for all products sustainable, packed with interesting and useful information.
"Helen is an extremely knowledgeable and experienced blogger and social media manager who engages her audience in a professional, yet authentic and relatable manner. Helen has a special skill and passion for building a genuine connection with people". Kelly Wagner, KIDS YOGA
"Helen Edwards is one of those women who seems to juggle more balls in the air then the rest of us could even consider, yet she humbly acknowledges that life isn’t all Insta-perfect all the time, thank goodness, there’s enough of that going around!
Her passion for all things ethical, sustainable and handmade is unsurpassed and she works extremely hard to help us average folk make better choices, have access to often hard-to-find resources and brings joy and inspiration into our daily lives through her social media channels and emails.
A seasoned thrifter and up-cycler, Helen’s styling blends vintage pieces with one-off handmade and is fun-filled, yet considered and balanced; encouraging the viewer to feel that they can achieve something similar in their own home without having to resort to living on lentils for the next 6 months.
Helen is incredibly generous in her knowledge and impeccably professional to work with; I cannot recommend this lady highly enough!" Sarah, Sea Soul Studio
