Our Shared Vision

Hi! Thanks for visiting us.

We are a Social Traders certified social enterprise and we're on a mission to support the wellbeing of vulnerable people, animals and protect the environment. We do this by offering gifts and experiences that give back. We’ve donated over $60,000* and helped animals in Australia and overseas since our inception in 2017.

Our story starts in Melbourne, Australia where Founder, Audrey Martin, set out to support animal rescue by raising money selling premium, hand-poured candles at local markets. With that, The Karma Collective was born and since then, has flourished into a thriving wholesaler and retailer of gifts that restore harmony to the world, in every sense.   

In 2022, Audrey decided it was time for Karma to find a new family to nurture its growth. Audrey met Angharad and Peter Lubbock who were on a mission to champion more regenerative, holistic living on small acreage in Toowoomba, Australia. With plans to rescue farm animals on their 5.5 acre property, and with the space to grow the candle operations, it was the right match. 

Karma HQ moved to Toowoomba in March 2022 and continues to make premium cocosoy wax candles by hand. 

The Karma Collective continues to grow and impact the world around it. We do so in an unhurried manner, nourishing the world in which we live. Our dream to uplift people and care for the vulnerable in the world around us, is not an isolated one, but is shared by many in our community. This is how our Community Co-Design Artwork came into being. We shared our dream with local social enterprise stakeholders and asked two questions:

Do you share our belief in a vision for a wellbeing space; and

How can we make it a reality?

The ideas flowed, and we dreamed big. The day was recorded in visual storytelling by Indi from IndiDust, and developed into the concept you now see. At the end of the process, everyone left with their cup full, excited about the future. As each part of the framework grows, we are astounded, and more lives are impacted. 

Thanks to you, our Karma family, we truly can support the wellbeing or people, animals and planet.

Thank you for reading this, and for uplifting our collective Karma!
