Jenny Tranter – Founder
Jenny Tranter founded State of Green in early 2010. It started with a small online eco store, showcasing some of her fab finds which were modern in style but light on environmental impact. It then gently evolved into a separate blog/passion sharing with others her local eco design finds and the amazing creative people she came across. Educated at Monash University (Arts-Social Sciences) and Deakin University (International Business), she resides with her family in Melbourne. Jenny’s love of the environment is rooted in her childhood filled with happy yearly adventures in a yellow combi van to Byron Bay, bush walking and cross country skiing on the Victorian highplains and whiling away the day on clean sandy beaches.
