NASH + BANKS® is a platform for change. A one-stop-shop for people looking to enrich their lives with products that have a positive impact. Our vision is to Make Better Possible and to help anyone looking to live a more conscious life to discover the best ethical and sustainable solutions available today.
THINK ETHICAL, WITH AN EDGE; SUSTAINABLE, WITH SWAGGER; HEART AND SOUL, AND A BIT OF ROCK 'N ROLL.
We are committed to sourcing and curating authentic brands committed to people & the planet and supporting this community of passionate founders and change-makers to innovate for a better tomorrow.
Hailing from a playground that is equal parts untamed wilds and urban jungle, we embrace the slow, the real, choosing well, and caring more.
The initial seed for starting NASH + BANKS was planted when founder Niccii Kugler worked for an NGO in the cloud forests of Costa Rica. But it wasn’t until after the birth of her children that her awareness of the increasing cost of overconsumption grew to a level that she couldn’t ignore any longer.
"I became frustrated with my the feeling of powerlessness to effect change. To try and combat this, I made a commitment to make better choices wherever I could. I started searching for brands that offered alternatives that were either ethical, sustainable, organic, small-batch, handmade, low waste, vegan or social enterprises that gave back. Interesting and unique products, that fit my aesthetic, were well designed and made with purpose."
What she discovered was an inspiring community of change-makers, innovators and artisans dedicated to rewriting our future.
From our base on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, we handpick brands from across the world that are committed to having a positive impact. No greenwashing here.
It is important that we create a clear distinction between brands that are using sustainability and slow living as a marketing tool and those that genuinely live and breathe this ethos. For that reason we get up close and personal with all of the brands we feature to ensure their purpose, process, and products deliver against one or more of the eight core Values we are guided by.

A NOTE FROM OUR FOUNDER
"Change for the better begins with a single, imperfect step in the right direction."
This idea has guided our efforts here at Nash + Banks from the first day. We're here to help make that journey easier and to encourage you to support the brands, social enterprises and artisans who work tirelessly to create goods that tread lightly and with care.
Enjoy the ride!
