Mission + passion
Our purpose is Prized Life
Our journey to Prized Life started as we individually became more aware of our values. We wanted to be able to take small steps every day to look after people and the planet.
We began with trying to find brands selling products that matched our values, but it was time consuming. Wishing it was simple and easy to find and connect with brands, we decided to do something about it.
Starting as an online directory, Prized Life was launched in March 2020 just as the global pandemic really hit home. Since then we have been able to genuinely connect with and support hundreds of brands.
We work with brands from both Australia and New Zealand, as these countries are our home and community. At heart we are kiwi twins born and raised in New Zealand, currently both living in the Manawatu. We've spent the last 5 years exploring Australia, and between us we've lived and worked in Cairns, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Mackay, Outback Queensland and Perth.
Value driven living?
Your values are what is important to you in life. They may be behind the scenes, something you may not have spent much time thinking about. Or, they could be at the forefront of your life, driving your decision making.
Wherever you are in your journey, it's important to us that we meet you there. Prized Life is a place to learn, explore and connect with your values.
