Thank you for telling MOO about your business

3rd April 2012 by Dan H

We recently ran a competition asking you to tell us all about your businesses and what makes you stand out from the crowd – and you didn’t disappoint!

We had over 1000 entries come through, with stories that ranged from the heartwarming to the hilarious. We gave them all to our very own Lisa Rodwell and, after a tough time deliberating, she eventually settled on Brittney Wholihan’s entry for her company, Luhse Tea.

Here’s a bit about Luhse Tea, in Brittney’s own words:

By drinking loose-leaf teas, people are consuming a higher quality and are able to customize the flavor/strength of their tea. Lulu, Tommy Gunns, and Queen Song are the brains and muscle of this operation. We want to demolish the stodgy stereotype tea has with younger demographics. Our branding has received recognition world-wide, as we have been featured on many design websites. Free your tea and join the gang!

We were captivated by the fact they are trying to change the image of tea, have a novel prohibition angle and their dedication to quality clearly shines through!

Runners up prizes

We were also impressed by our three runners up, who each win $100 to spend at MOO:

Amanda Danziger of Ferasha Films – a great local cause with a very strong mission statement.

Crystal Padmore – Ethical, upcycled womenswear that mixes great designs with a good conscience.

Bruce Sturgell of Chubstr – An excellent celebration of big, stylish men, supported with solid community activity online.

Honourable mentions

Of course, there were plenty of other outstanding contributions and we couldn’t go without highlighting a few of the other entries that caught our eye, so very well deserved honourable mentions go to:

  • Marketa from Zukr Boutique creates sweets using locally sourced produce.
  • Melissa at Ye Olde Gangster creates greetings cards with a Gangster Rap twist.
  • Lola submitted Meals from Scratch who aim to bridge the gap between home cooking and takeaway/ready meals for busy individuals.

A huge thank you to everyone that entered!
