the porter green story.
We are porter green - an Australian-owned, Melbourne based family business of design-driven, sustainable and reusable everyday products.
Founded by entrepreneurial sisters Jane Cox and Mary Warnest, the company has experienced rapid growth as savvy consumers around Australia and New Zealand have fallen in love with its innovative, affordable and stylish collection.
The name porter green was inspired by a tradition of the strong, resilient women in our family in who's footsteps we aspire to follow. 'porter' is not only the French verb 'to carry', it is also the maiden name of our mother, Wendy. Wendy was unique, creative and innovative and these attributes have always been at the heart of the porter green ethos. 'green', is not only the message behind the products we create, it is also an ode to Alma who's tenacity and courage continues to inspire her granddaughters.
The porter green message is simple – for the future of our planet and for the sake of our children, grand-children and beyond, make sustainable choices –choose reusable over single-use every time.
In addition to the core collection which is offered to the marketplace, every porter green piece can be customized to create beautiful bespoke product.
A myriad of companies across many industries are choosing to align their brand with the porter green message. The collection can be produced using custom pantones and offers a wide range of branding options.
Joining the core collection which includes reusable biodegradable bamboo cups (the team’s own design which was expertly engineered in Australia), foldable unbreakable silicone glasses, hot and cold stainless steel drink flask & reusable shopping bags created in recyclable fabric, the pg team has introduced the ‘Safety Edit’ campaign In response to Covid-19.
Comprising of 75% alcohol-based hand sanitiser and surface spray, the affordable and stylishly presented range is the perfect add-on for every type of store to offer their customers as Australians adapt to new safety guidelines, restrictions ease and doors re-open.
