About MelJoy (And Mel herself!)
I’m Mel - the water obsessed traveling Disney nerd behind MelJoy. I’m a marketer by trade (and started my career in buying!) who has combined her past experiences to create a one stop shop for some super cool eco-friendly brands.
Having had the incredible opportunity to travel (19 countries and counting!) and even live overseas, I’m so grateful for all of the incredibly diverse places I’ve been able to explore on this earth. One of my favorite things to do when I travel (other than be by water) is to go and wander around small local hidden gems of shops. I adore seeing what makers are creating across the globe. Especially during the crazy year that has been 2020 - that’s not really something people are able to do right now.
So I set out to find a way to combine my love of shopping with my love for our earth’s resources - and that’s how MelJoy was born!
I stumbled on the Swedish concept of “lagom” while putting this company together - it loosely translates into “not too little and not too much.” And it just really hit home for me. While I love shopping, I’m actively trying to not over consume...and when I DO make purchases? Well I want them to be guilt free - from smaller companies that are working hard to reduce their global footprint and ones that don’t show up absolutely wrapped in plastic! So when the package arrives, you’ve got nothing to do but feel JOY.
