Our Story

Our Story 

Inspired by my mom and her own journey, I started dreaming up this online store and community at the beginning of 2021 as a way to help you and those you love stay inspired and motivated through carefully crafted gifts. 

We launched in July 2021, with inspirational jewelry, coffee mugs and tumblers and have quickly grown our product offerings in a few short months. Each product is hand selected by me and most products are designed by me or designed from my creative direction to offer you unique gifts you can’t find anywhere else. 

Why Sustainable Grace?

Two and a half months after my mom’s 60th birthday she was diagnosed with Stage 4 Lung Cancer, a rare form only found in non-smokers and predominantly womenshe fought for 5.5 years before passing away in 2020. Most people never knew she was sick because she never complained or lived as if she was dying, she just lived and enjoyed life and stayed positive and strong in her faith throughout her journey. 

The name, Sustainable Grace, by way of meaning, means to "maintain a simple elegance" something she did every day. Grace is my mom's middle name and hummingbirds are not only graceful and resilient but something my mom and I both loved and how I connect now that she's passed. It was maybe a few weeks after she passed and I was sitting outside on my patio when I looked up and a hummingbird was hovering in front of me—it was as if she was saying it’s okay, I’m still here. Now, throughout the summer months, a hummingbird flies up to my kitchen window and peeks in from time to time to say hello. 

Our Goal 

Let’s face it, LIFE. IS. HARD. and we could all use a little extra motivation and inspiration. My goal is to inspire and motivate you through our products and community to stay strong, faithful and positive throughout your own journey or help those you love do the same. 

Our Mission

To create meaningful moments for you and those you love through carefully crafted and quality gifts you'll want to share over and over again.

Thank you for being here and taking the time to learn more about Sustainable Grace. 

Love,

Gina Marie
