Hi there! My name’s Mardi. I’m the founder of French for Tuesday. 

Why the unique name? “Mardi” is a day of the week in the French language….ahhhh! Everything you find here is totally a 100% Australian eco-living experience! Welcome!

Let’s simplify living sustainably together by rethinking our everyday to help us tread lightly and more resourcefully.

French for Tuesday is grounded in Newcastle, Australia. Join me as I share stories of our local community grassroots change-makers who genuinely help the wellbeing of people and planet.

Let's get started

What do you want to find today?

Our mindful actions flow on to our immediate community, which impacts upon our national environmental footprint, which then impacts upon the biggie – our planet.

Together we can live sustainably as our everyday normal – to live mindfully and resourcefully today without compromising ourselves and planet down the track.

Start here by attending one of my workshops, reading stories on my blog or choosing to purchase from my online shop (with Australia wide delivery).

Online Shop

The shop you need for treading lightly on the planet

Shop Now

Resourceful communities shop for items already in circulation by choosing quality second-hand-first to reduce waste going to landfill. Discover a diverse range of quality vintage, retro or lightly used second hand items.

Local communities love supporting local too. Upcycled, handcrafted items add a local, lower footprint ethos to the online shop.

The online shop also recommends brand new products (through partnership recommendations) that support low tox, low waste products for the benefit of ourselves and planet.
