So Who Are We?
We aim to provide ethically and sustainably produced products which will stand the test of time, both in design and quality and, where possible, compost and return to the earth when they are no longer useful.
We also pay attention to packaging and wrap all orders as consciously as possible.
Our aim is to find the most ethical, high-quality and affordable options for each of the products we feature.
We review the quality and ethics of our products regularly so we can be sure our range is one we’d be happy with in our own homes.
Our Life Our Way is a collaboration between Kerrie Kruger and Megan Blair. It is a space where we share our combined skills and knowledge about art of simple living, also calling on the expertise of others who are living this frugally hedonistic lifestyle. Living our life our way is as much about what we tune out from as it is about what we tune into, as we seek the things that nourish us. Our Life Our Way was established in 2015 as a visual manifestation of the joys, beauty and challenges Kerrie experienced with her family, living on the outskirts of a small rural community.
Kerrie, her partner Pete and their son Nick, run a sheet metal business Krugers Sheetmetal Pty Ltd since 1996 , from home since, which includes the manufacture of pest-proof chicken feeders. From their old woolshed, they run tin-smithing, welding and chicken wrangling workshops. They live with an amazing assemblage of chickens, some sheep and a goat and grow lots of their own food. Their pride and joy is the salvaged wood cooker, brought back to life by Peter and now ‘ Mabel’ has pride of place in the kitchen, warming and nourishing body and soul.
A serendipitous meeting with Megan in 2017, led to the realization that they both had very similar values and liked lots of the same things. Megan lives with her four children on a suburban ¼ acre block, growing fruit trees, vegies, looking after chooks, knitting, sewing and baking (a lot!) and finding new ways to use stuff that people discard.
