Meet The Babipur Team: Hello Jenia!

Meet Team Babipur

Just over fourteen years ago, the Babipur story began. A tiny independent business, with a spare room crammed full of ethical goodies. Two people, Jolene and Peter with a dream to make a difference. Fast forward a few years and Babipur has grown from strength to strength surrounded by an amazing community of like minded folks, looking to be more conscious consumers. Over the past fourteen years as Babipur has grown, so has its amazing and dedicated Team. Peter and Jolene believe strongly in creating jobs for local people in Wales and equally, providing flexible working opportunity where it is most needed, is very important to them.

To celebrate all the hard work and contribution that each member of Team Babipur make, we will be sharing a little bit about one person a month. Up first is our lovely Jenia who works at Babipur as Peter’s assistant, and is a valuable member of our team…Over to you Jenia!!

Have you made any eco-swaps since working at Babipur? Tell us about them!

Klean Kanteen (obviously!), Ecoliving Shampoo bar (Autumn Berries is my favourite) and Bio-D cleaning products. One of the best swaps was Luggy shopping basket for my daughter – she absolutely adores it and pushes around town, any excuse to go shopping with Luggy (I think I started to forget to take my bank card on these walks…accidentally)
