My name's Virginie.
Having done translation work for almost 20 years for large companies doing business with and in China, I became more and more aware that we have no choice but to change our consumerism behaviour.
Waste - and in particular waste created by (plastic) disposables - has become a threat on a global scale. Therefore I decided to start on a slightly different level with mon.MO.
I believe everyone deserves to be able to buy good, healthy, pretty and durable products, ranging from natural body care to sustainable design items.
That's why I chose to walk this road businesswise - in addition to my private life - away from the use of mass consumption products manufactured by the big corporate businesses, that are harmful to our planet and its ecosystems.
Based in Belgium, mon.MO sells pretty items that are either zero waste, sustainable, fair trade and/or made in Europe. We focus on quality and origin of the products we supply and that way aim to support the preservation of traditional techniques and sustainable production methods.
Beside that, we also recycle packing material for parcels and do our best to avoid use of plastic tape and filler material.
While keeping this little webshop, my family and I also enjoy entirely off-the-grid outdoor living at our house in the woods, where we try to live with as little impact as possible on the environment and the beautiful nature that surrounds us here.
